SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Attention recent graduates! Saginaw Valley State University wants to connect local schools with the educators of tomorrow. 

The university is hosting an employment fair Tuesday for open education positions. The job fair runs from noon to 2 p.m. and is open to the public. Due to the increased demand, with more than 45 districts interested, the event has been moved to Curtiss Hall. 

The open positions include K-12 teachers, substitutes, principals, assistant principals and teachers for special needs students.

“With the retiring of teachers and fewer education students graduating, the demand for teachers is high,” said Bill Stec, SVSU assistant director of Career Services. “We have received over 850 postings for teaching positions over the past year through Career Services.”

Craig Douglas, dean of SVSU's College of Education, said he has received numerous phone calls about open positions.

“The need for quality candidates is at an all-time high level,” he said. “When schools look at us, they know we provide our students with solid field-based experiences.”
