“I feel confident that the university and the education department are setting us up for success,” said Abby Flatt, senior elementary education major from Midland.
“Historically, ACU puts out great teacher candidates,” said Chris King Halifax, Director of Human Resources at Abilene ISD. “When we get a student from ACU, they are fully prepared.”
Being able to still hold this event is also an opportunity for education majors as well as students interested in mission work. There are recruiters available looking for potential students to do mission work in different to teach English.
In addition, recruiters told Fortson that this is their favorite teacher fair to be a part of.
