Metro Schools Deploys Innovative Strategies to Recruit Teachers

District is hosting a recruitment fair specifically to invite retirees back into the classroom.


Metro Nashville Public Schools is continuously looking for new ways to recruit talented teachers into our classrooms during a time when much of the country is experiencing a teaching shortage.

To that affect: the district is hosting a Retiree Recruitment Fair to invite retirees to bring their talents back into the classroom.

Retired teachers will bring with them a deep love for serving students and also the talent MNPS needs to lead classrooms on a part- or full-time basis in a variety of content areas.

Retirees will have four different pathways they can take back to the classroom: full-time teaching, part-time teaching, school-assigned substitute or regular substitute assignments.

Positions are available today – and retirees can be back in the classroom serving students in a matter of days.
