Three Central Texas school districts will hold job fairs in coming days as districts across the state and nation battle for a limited pool of applicants amid an ongoing teacher shortage.
The Killeen Independent School District will hold a job fair Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Harker Heights High School as the district searches to fill more than 300 vacant teacher positions. The Temple and Belton independent school districts will both hold job fairs on Wednesday.
TISD Job Fair
Temple ISD will host its teacher job fair from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday at Temple High School, 415 N. 31st St. in Temple. The district is looking to hire teachers to begin working this fall for the 2022-2023 school year.
“We are excited to host another job fair and invite potential candidates for interviews,” TISD Superintendent Bobby Ott told FME News Service. “It is a chance to learn more about Temple ISD and us to learn more about you.”
Temple ISD is hiring teachers at all levels and all of the district’s campuses will be represented at the job fair, according to a news release.
“Temple ISD is looking for educators who believe that success is possible for every student, and the work they do on a daily basis is critical to developing future leaders in our community, our state, and our world,” Donna Ward, assistant superintendent of human resources for Temple schools, said.
BISD Job Fair
Belton ISD will host a job fair for all positions from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Chisholm Trail Elementary, 1082 S. Wheat Road in Belton.
