HISD to host teacher hiring event, offer new incentives

Teacher Recruitment will host an in-person teacher hiring event on Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Delmar Fieldhouse.

The recruitment team invites all pool-approved teacher candidates, HISD student teachers, ACP candidates that have a current Statement of Eligibility (SOE), and May/August university graduates.

Internal HISD Teachers interested in participating in the upcoming Open Transfer Period are also be invited. This will give principals an opportunity to interview and meet potential existing HISD teachers for any 2022-2023 vacancies.
