Those interested are encouraged to fill out a form (www.oxfordsd.org/JobFairForm) before Saturday morning. Educators should bring a current resume and professional portfolio. Oxford principals and administrators will be present to discuss available opportunities.

Those interested in applying should have one of the following: a Mississippi preliminary certificate, a professional teaching credential (if from outside the state), teaching credential by Fall 2018 or at least one year of experience in a teaching intern program.
