Where do districts find new teachers? Most often schools would rather hire from within. How do teachers position themselves for such hiring? Sometimes, through job fairs, recruiting events or, hold strong connections to district personnel? That will work! The best way, though, “to get your foot in the door” is to serve a 12 or 14 week student teacher internship. Making yourself invaluable, during the internship, to the administrators, teachers, and children. Developing strong contacts, relationships, and connections with everyone on campus will ensure that you are offered a teaching position in the future.
Status of Schools
The economy is improving and the Texas student population continues to grow.
School districts are forced to open new schools, launch new programs, re-instate sideline programs, subsequently, hire more teachers for all such ventures. Only, through growth can school districts meet the demands of the growing student population teaching & learning needs.
