PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - After years of layoffs or weak hiring, many school districts in Oregon are hiring teachers.

The organizer of a Portland job fair for educators, Jim Buck, predicts districts will hire at least 2,000 this spring and summer.

A human resources manager for Portland Public Schools, Keith Hathorne, says Oregon’s largest district plans to hire nearly 400 teachers this spring.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1eyDDw7) schools are replacing retirees and adding some positions.

From 2009 to 2012, Oregon schools shed 3,600 teaching jobs.
