Lee Co. School System to host job fair for educators

LEE CO., GA (WALB) - The Lee County School System is looking for educators at all levels for the 2018-2019 school year.

Assistant Superintendent Kevin Dowling said the Lee County School System is normally a competitive field. But this year they are having some difficulties filling spots due to a teacher shortage nationwide

"We've had enough things presented to us and talked to that I feel confident that we are going to have some good opening for folks," said Dowling.

Dowling also said some teachers are retiring and some are changing professions.

LCSS will be hosting a job fair for those seeking a career in education on Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

During the job fair, officials will be meeting with those interested in being an educator within LCSS.

The job fair will be held at the Bindery at Oakland which is located at 445 Oakland Parkway in Leesburg.
