MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A Middle Georgia teaching agency wants to hire 200 teachers.

The Regional Educational Service Agency holds a teacher job fair at Westside High School on February 23rd. The event at 10 a.m.

The agency needs teachers for:
  • Bibb,
  • Crawford,
  • Houston,
  • Jasper,
  • Jones,
  • Monroe,
  • Peach, and
  • Twiggs counties.

In 2017, the US Department of Education predicted a nationwide teacher shortage. Now in 2019, the demand comes to Middle Georgia.

Leadership Developmental Specialist Dan Ray says that they want:

  • current teachers,
  • recent college graduates, and
  • those who want to change careers.

Schools want to fill K-12 teaching positions for the 2019/2020 school year.

“There’s a lot of really nice pieces that, to me, are very attractive for folks that are looking to relocate or have their first-time job in teaching here in the Middle Georgia area,” Ray says.

Furthermore, principals also look to hire counselors, media specialists, and assistant principals.
