Upcoming job fair for teachers at R.E. Stevenson Elementary school

RUSSELLVILLE, Ky.- For anyone looking to be a teacher this fall, a local elementary school is looking for some, in a year that’s expected to be all hands on deck.

A job fair will be held at R.E. Stevenson Elementary in the Russellville Independent School District June 21 and June 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are nine teaching positions open.

The positions include elementary teachers, an art teacher, a P.E. teacher, and a librarian. Applicants will need a bachelor’s degree in elementary education, or a bachelor’s degree in another field, and are interested in the option 6 program, where that person could be a teacher for the school while earning an education degree.

Stevenson Elementary principal Heather Carden is fairly new to the job, and she says she’s already had a great time working and serving students there.

“I’m most excited about the enthusiasm, and them getting to meet the community members and be a part of the Stevenson team. I have been in Russellville for a little over two weeks now, and they have just been so welcoming and such a big help to me in this new adventure,” Carden said.
