Thousands of teachers needed

More than 21 Texas school districts, including Harlandale ISD, will hire thousands of teachers at a regional teacher job fair to be held next week.

Harlandale ISD will be attending the Educator Job Fair sponsored by the San Antonio Area Personnel Administrators Association July 16-17 between 9:00 am and noon at the Paul Taylor Field House located on Loop 410 near Culebra Road.

School districts from across Bexar County and beyond are looking for teachers, administrators, counselors, and speech pathologists. On Tuesday, July 16, those interested in elementary positions should attend, and Wednesday, July 17 is for secondary-level positions. Grades 4-8 and all-level applicants may attend either day. Interviews will be held for select applicants from 1:00-4:00 pm each day.

Harlandale ISD is looking to fill approximately 51 positions within the district. Thirty-one positions are set for elementary and 20 for secondary positions. Many of the positions available are in the special education, bilingual, math, and science departments.

Diana Tudyk, Interim Executive Director for Human Resources, shared some advice for those attending the job fair.

“Have a well prepared resume with your certification areas easy to identify on the resume. This is a huge job fair so you have to give many first impressions at the various district tables, so stay patient and smile,” she said.

There is no registration fee to attend the fair, but applicants should bring multiple copies of their resume and teaching certificates, and complete each school district’s online application prior to arrival.

School districts participating include Aldine ISD, Crystal City ISD, Cypress Fairbanks ISD, Eagle Pass ISD, Edgewood ISD, Floresville ISD, Harlandale ISD, Harlingen ISD, Hondo ISD, Jourdanton ISD, Judson ISD, Kerrville ISD, Medina Valley ISD, North East ISD, Northside ISD, Pearsall ISD, Pleasanton ISD, San Antonio ISD, Somerset ISD, Southside ISD, and Uvalde CISD.
