I really enjoyed attending the education job fair. There was a variety of school districts.

I really enjoyed meeting the representatives of the districts and talking about the schools. I wish it was a little bit later in the semester though, as many of them mentioned mid to late March is when most of the jobs become available.

The fair was well organized, the staff worked well with students who needed help, and I feel satisfied.

It was really good, but I expected it to be longer and I thought more teams would be in it. Like Actual Dance Teams, but overall I liked it.

I tool my grand-kids who are 8 and 4 and they were stunned at all the booths of exciting scientific activities. I realized that you need an entire day to go through everything. I will remember this next year :).
