The Great Florida Teach-In is an annual job fair organized by the Florida Department of Education, Bureau of Educator Recruitment, Development and Retention. It provides a convenient forum that enables certified teachers seeking employment in Florida to obtain interviews with Florida school district and Florida charter school personnel responsible for hiring teachers.
The 2017 Teach-In is scheduled for Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Rosen Plaza Hotel on International Drive in Orlando, Florida. The Department does not hire or interview teachers; accordingly, the Department cannot guarantee that teachers attending the Teach-In will be interviewed or offered employment.
In addition to the main recruitment fair, the 2017 Great Florida Teach-In will feature a college graduate night on March 20 at 5:00 p.m. The college graduate night will provide graduates from June of 2016 to July of 2017 the opportunity to meet and interview with Florida’s school districts and charter schools.
