Petal School District to Host Annual Teacher Job Fair

PETAL, Miss. – The Petal School District (PSD) will host its annual Teacher Job Fair from 3 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022, at the PSD Central Office located at 115 East Central Avenue in Petal.

Prospective teachers will have the opportunity to connect with principals and assistant principals face-to-face and take part in 10-minute mini-interviews for openings in the 2022-23 school year. For the principals, the fair serves as a screening time where they determine which candidates to call for full interviews as positions become available.

“The job fair serves us well by allowing principals to get a first impression of the pool of teachers interested in our district,” said Margaret Tynes, PSD director of human resources. “Each year, we are able to identify strong candidates at the fair who return for extensive interviews and are hired to teach,” Tynes said.

Interested candidates must submit the online registration form and complete the licensed personnel employment application found at The deadline for registration is Tuesday, Jan. 11.

Once registration has been submitted, applicants will receive a confirmation email with their interview time. Please note that confirmations will be delayed for registration forms submitted between Dec. 20 – Jan. 2 due to the Christmas holidays.
