JACKSON, Tenn. – April 22, 2009 – Representatives from 15 area school systems will meet with prospective teachers April 23 at Union University’s Teacher Expo 2009.
The event will take place from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the hallway of the Blasingame Academic Complex. All graduate and undergraduate education students as well as students in critical shortage areas such as math, biology, physics, chemistry, Spanish, French and English as a second language have been invited to attend.
