PETAL, Miss. – The Petal School District (PSD) will host its annual Teacher Job Fair from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023, at Petal Primary School located at 60 Herrington Road in Petal. This is open to all prospective teachers interested in a PreK-12 certified position in our school district.

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 2023-24 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.
