Job Search Tips

How do I find a teaching job?

Spring is the time to start your job search for fall.  Please do not limit yourself to just the large districts. There are many smaller districts in our area.  The only limiting factor is it must be an accredited Texas school and you must be within 75 miles of either Texarkana or Mt. Pleasant.

In addition to submitting many applications, plan to attend all job fairs.  Bring plenty of copies of your resumes, dress professional; submit employment applications online prior to attending.  Many of our students have found it helpful to make a professional portfolio.
