HATTIESBURG, MS (WLOX) - The Hattiesburg School District is looking to fill vacant teaching positions. Administrators and staff hosted a job fair Saturday.
Currently there are about 20 open positions. District officials are particularly looking for science, mathematics and special education teachers. They're also looking for substitute teachers.
"We've had about 50 people to show up so far the first hour of the fair, so we're really excited about that turnout. There will be opportunities for more job fairs later as the summer progresses," said HPSD Communications/Engagement Coordinator Samone Wilson.
