Longview ISD is looking to immediately fill these positions:
Elementary teachers, secondary education teachers, and specialized teachers in both family consumer science and music. They have more than 20 positions they’re hoping to lock in before August 9th; that’s when new hire orientation starts.
Longview ISD is looking forward to new faces and a new building year.
“We’re going to be innovative, have a fresh start, and I think all these new ideas, new perspectives is really going to be great for the whole district,” Sarah LeBus, LISD Communications Officer, said.
Longview ISD says one of their highest priorities is filling in more bilingual teachers into their schools since the Hispanic population is growing in the area.
“We are really trying to accommodate that growth by adding more bilingual teachers,” LeBus said.
The district has added new bilingual teaching positions that weren’t there last year.
“We’ve added a lot that aren’t typical positions but were definitely needed and will definitely help with our staff we already have,” LeBus said.
LeBus added this is a golden opportunity for people who just graduated college. She says you don’t have to specifically have a degree in teaching, There are certifications you can take in time to teach come August.
She says Longview is special and the district has a lot to offer to someone interested in an education career.
“We just have great kids and that reflects on our teachers. It’s rewarding, come see for yourself.”
