KALAMAZOO--Job opportunities for teachers will be showcased during Western Michigan University's 23rd annual Teacher Education Career Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 13, in the East Ballroom of the Bernhard Center.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is designed to recruit teachers for K-12 educational systems for the 2011-12 academic year and to provide information about WMU's graduate-school opportunities.

This year's event will feature recruiters representing more than 40 school districts in Michigan and 17 other states as well as China, Japan and Korea. Candidates for teaching positions do not need to preregister for the fair, but should dress in interview attire and bring a sufficient supply of resumes to distribute to prospective employers.

Sponsors for the 2011 Education Career Fair include MEEMIC Insurance Co. as well as WMU's College of Education and Human Development and Career and Student Employment Services. Volunteering to help out at the event are members of such University organizations as Drive Safe Kalamazoo, the Kappa Delta Pi International Honors Society for Educators, Student Michigan Education Association and the football team.

Printed versions of both the school district list and helpful hints may be picked up in the Career and Student Employment Services office on the first floor of Ellsworth Hall, which is located next to the Bernhard Center.
