Shelby County Schools – SCS Teacher Recruitment Fair

Shelby County Schools is excited to announce this year’s SCS Teacher Recruitment Fair, coming Saturday, December 8 to Hickory Ridge Middle School.

Why Memphis?

Shelby County Schools is located in Memphis, TN, a city in the midst of a grassroots renaissance. Perched high on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, Memphis has long been a hotbed of cultural richness—blues, barbeque, and the legendary Beale Street run deep here—but a fresh wave of innovative thinkers are breathing new life into our city, resulting in an eclectic blend of historicity and innovation that you’ll find nowhere else on Earth. This renaissance spirit is evident in the food, music, architecture, and arts of Memphis, but is especially so in our schools, where you’ll find educators and District staff that are earning national recognition for challenging the traditional educational landscape.

Why SCS?

Shelby County is a district on the rise, and we’re building a team that’s as bright and dynamic as the community we serve. As an urban district that ranks among the 25 largest in the nation, we face unique challenges, and because of that, we encourage unique solutions. We strive for a mission-driven working environment that empowers all staff to challenge the status-quo and engage in creative problem solving to impact real change in our community. By Choosing SCS, you’re choosing to work in a district that is rapidly improving student performance through innovative programming and initiatives including optional schools, community schools, and our nationally recognized iZone.

Our teachers enjoy:

  • Competitive salaries starting at $43,000
  • Relocation stipends for teachers moving from greater than 50 miles away
  • Performance-based raises & stipends; Sign-on bonuses for hard-to-staff subjects
  • A comprehensive benefits package, 12 District Holidays, and 2 Personal Days annually
