KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Knox County Schools will hire a new teacher recruiter as part of an effort to hire more top teachers.

The Knoxville News Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2ezzWYS ) reports that the recruiter will work with area colleges to attract their best students.

Buzz Thomas, interim superintendent of schools, says he wants to model Knox County’s recruiting strategy off Teach For America’s process, which places top college graduates into charter and public schools around the country.

Kelly Drummond, the district’s human resources director, says she hopes to have filled the position by Dec. 1. She says she hopes the individual would have experience working in colleges already. The individual will likely be paid in the mid-$60,000 range, depending on the candidate’s qualifications.
