Team HISD Is Hiring Exceptional STEM Teachers

HISD is actively recruiting STEM teachers who are invested in preparing our students to compete in this 21st century economy. By 2018, Texas will have added over 750,000 new jobs in STEM fields. STEM teachers are critical to ensure that Houston’s students are qualified and skilled for these positions. We are currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 school year. The next application deadline is April 22, 2013.

While vacancies exist in all areas, HISD has a high need for instructors with a strong background in the science, technology, engineering and math fields to fill positions districtwide including those at our two new STEM magnet schools – The Energy Institute High School and the Baylor College of Medicine Academy at Ryan. Hired candidates will receive STEM-related professional development and recruitment incentive of $5000 for secondary math and science positions.
