State launches Web site for all teachers

A newly-launched Web site is available as a one-stop, virtual resource for candidates wanting to work in any Tennessee public school. Licensed teachers may search openings statewide, post a profile for district officials to review and find resources on educator licensing and development at

Likewise, school district personnel can advertise career opportunities and conduct their own search for prospective teachers using the database of teacher profiles.

The new Tennessee Teacher Employment Resource allows teachers to hone their search by preferred grade level, subject area and location within the state. Teachers may also opt to create a detailed personal profile to showcase their licensure qualifications, work history, resume and other relevant information. When creating a profile, teacher candidates can indicate which geographic region, school system(s) and community environment — urban, rural or suburban — they prefer. College/university teacher education programs are partnering with the state to ensure their graduates know to take advantage of the resource.

School systems benefit from the ability to view the availability of teacher candidates from across the state. Access to candidate qualifications using the posted profiles can save time for district recruiters by allowing them to contact those whose career goals and credentials match the needs of the system.

The site was developed in conjunction with the Governor’s Teach Tennessee program, which selects mid-career professionals who meet rigorous requirements to become classroom teachers.

Finally, the site features an online User Guide and frequently asked questions page designed to help users learn how to navigate its resources. Users may also request technical assistance at 888-266-9611 or

The Web site is free of charge to candidates and Tennessee public school systems. Since it was launched May 2, dozens of school systems have begun posting job openings for the 2006-07 school year. The department is encouraging all 136 school systems to post each of their job openings on the site. For more information, contact Rachel Woods at (615) 253-1960 or
