South Carolina Teacher Expo
The South Carolina Teacher Expo is a one-day job fair designed to match teacher candidates to current district vacancies. The Expo attracts jobseekers from across the United States and several foreign countries. This year's Expo will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017 at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds in Columbia, SC.
The South Carolina Teacher Expo is open to certified teachers, recent college graduates of teacher education programs, and applicants who have applied to and met admission criteria for an approved alternative certification program in South Carolina. This year's Expo is open to candidates from all subject areas.
All participants should download the Participant Information Packet and read through it carefully. You may want to print a copy for your records. You should also read through ALL of the information on this page carefully.
Many of the districts attending the Expo have provided us with a list of their current and anticipated vacancies. Please note that district vacancies are constantly changing, so the numbers reported in the report below are subject to change. If you have questions about a position, please visit that district's booth or contact that district's human resources department.
You can sort through the data by clicking the headers for each field at the top.
