You live and play in the city, so why not teach in the city?
The Houston Independent School District’s Talent Acquisition team is hosting a mixer for new and experienced prospective teachers from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7 at 3rd Floor Loft Bar in Midtown.
This is a great opportunity for teachers who travel outside the city limits to teach at surrounding schools to connect with recruiters, school leaders, and other HISD professionals and learn about the benefits of joining Team HISD. Refreshments and appetizers will be provided.
Registration is required, and please bring copies of your resume. Additionally, 3rd Floor is an adult-only venue, so you must be 21 or older to enter.
HISD Transportation Department is rolling out its latest recruitment campaign, seeking out the best school bus drivers and attendants to join its nationally recognized team for the upcoming school year.
The department has been hard at work this summer searching for candidates to join its staff of 1,200 employees responsible for safely ferrying about 34,000 students to and from school each day.
Six months ago, Lauren Paquette was teaching in North Carolina and living at the poverty level with her husband and son. Now, that’s all changed.
“We started realizing, ‘We can’t afford to live here anymore,’” explains the Hobby Elementary School fourth-grade teacher. “I saw that HISD was coming back to Charlotte, and I said, ‘You know what, let’s just go and see what happens.’”
That was this past July, and within weeks of meeting with HISD’s Teacher Recruitment team, Paquette had packed up her classroom and headed to Houston.
“For me, it was a $20,000 raise, and that’s huge,” said Paquette. “It’s almost a whole other salary.”
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.
