In Baton Rouge, educators have options. Different school cultures mean a different school fit - and you deserve a fit that’s right for you.
At a Glance:
- Explore charter, private, and traditional schools from wherever you are
- All you need is an internet connection and a smartphone or laptop!
- Check out virtual school booths to see what interests you
- If you want to learn more about a school, text or video chat with a representative!
- Considering becoming a certified teacher? Certification partners and educator preparation programs will have booths as well
Have you ever been to a career fair in person? The virtual version is similar, but enables you to interact with potential employers from the comfort of your couch, office, or...wherever you are!
During the virtual recruitment fair, you’ll have the opportunity to visit virtual “booths” where you can explore opportunities and participate in 1-on-1 text or audio and video-based chats with representatives from participating organizations.
All you need to explore charter, private, and traditional schools is an internet connection and a device! The fair will also feature teacher certification programs to help you unlock the full benefits of being an educator!
