USD School of Education to Host Teacher Networking Event

VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota’s 4th annual Teacher Candidate Networking Event will take place on Friday, Nov. 16 at the Muenster University Center from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The event, hosted by the USD School of Education, is a career fair designed to provide employers and students in the field of education with a space to network and discuss job opportunities.

Over 100 students are expected to attend. The event has been so successful in the past that the number of employers participating has increased by approximately 50 percent since its first year.

“This event grows a little larger each year as more school districts and education agencies find the venue to be an excellent way to meet with our teacher candidates as well as other educational professionals in the areas of school counseling, school psychology and speech language pathology,” said Sherrie Bosse, Ed.D., director of academic advising and student engagement at the School of Education. “Our USD students benefit from the ability to visit in person with district and agency personnel about current or anticipated job openings in the region as well as what makes each employer unique.”

Twenty-six employers have pre-registered for the event. School districts and educational agencies who would like to register for the event can still do so by contacting Sherrie.Bosse@usd.edu.
