Education Job Fair

Those interested in pursuing a career in education are invited to attend the Education Job Fair on April 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Cedar Building at the Mendocino County Office of Education (MCOE) located at 2240 Old River Road in Ukiah. This collaborative event includes employers from local school districts including Anderson Valley Unified, Fort Bragg Unified, Laytonville Unified, Leggett Unified, Potter Valley Community Unified, Round Valley Unified, Ukiah Unified and Willits Unified, as well as from Mendocino College, National University, and North Coast School of Education.
Available positions vary, covering a wide range of experience and training, from maintenance positions to behavioral aides and teaching positions. MCOE Assistant Superintendent Becky Jeffries said, “Everyone’s welcome. We encourage people to bring their current resume, any credentials or licenses required for the position they’re interested in, letters of recommendation and copies of academic transcripts.”
In education, there are two main employee classifications: classified staff and certificated staff. Classified employees fill a variety of roles that do not require a teaching credential. Certificated staff must have specific credentials and sometimes additional licenses, training, or degrees.
Teaching positions require a bachelor’s degree and a teaching credential. For those who have not yet attained a full credential, there are emergency permits available that allow people to be the teacher of record while completing the requirements of a full credential.
Psychologists and speech-language pathologists require a master’s degree and credentials in their respective fields. Some colleges offer internships, allowing an individual to work on their master’s and credential at the same time. Waivers can be requested for individuals who are working toward the requirements. provided they meet minimum requirements of applicable degrees and program enrollment.
School nurses require a license and a credential. They can apply for a preliminary credential if they already have a bachelor’s degree or higher and a registered nursing (RN) license. Like other credentialed positions, nursing positions can be filled by those who are pursuing an approved program to clear their credential.
Principals must have an administrative services credential and a teaching credential. Teachers can become principals if they have five years of teaching experience and complete an approved administrative program.
