Kennewick School District Hosts Teacher Job Fair

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA- Teacher shortages have been a statewide situation and communities are having trouble finding more teachers. Communities in our area are holding job fairs as a way to get substitutes and student teachers to apply for open positions. 

Kennewick School District hosted a teacher job fair Monday night. The event lasted two hours and just about half way through, there had already been over 150 applicants walk through the door. We talked with Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources for the district, Doug Christensen, he told us tonight was very important for them because of how severe the teacher shortages are. 

Richland School District hosted a teacher job fair at the beginning of October and Pasco will host one on November 12 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
