Great Florida Teach-In

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 Florida Department of Education has made the decision to cancel the Great Florida Teach-In scheduled for March 27, 2021 due to a lack of registration. At this time, a rescheduled date has not been determined. The department will provide more information when it becomes available.

If you have any questions, please contact Virginia Whitaker at 850-245-0608 or at edrecruit@fldoe.org.
