TEMPLE, Texas — The Temple Independent School District will be providing potential employees with the opportunity to get the “scoop” on job openings in the district during a July Job Fair.
Temple ISD will be hosting a job fair and ice cream social for potential employees at the Temple High School Library (415 N. 31st Street, Temple, TX 76504) on Tuesday, July 25th, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. The job fair is mainly focused on teachers and paraprofessionals and will provide potential employees with a chance to mingle with principals and district administrators while enjoying free ice cream. Attendees are encouraged to enter through the north side entrance of the high school. Current job openings include teachers and teacher aides at all levels and you can find a complete list of current openings at the following link: Temple - TalentEd Hire (tedk12.com). The district is also inviting new hires to bring a friend they would recommend for hire to the job fair.
“Temple ISD is looking for passionate educators at all levels who want to make a difference in the Temple community,” said Adrian Lopez, director of employee relations for Temple schools. “We are looking for teachers and non-teaching staff who have the ability to connect with and build positive relationships with students and coworkers. We are proud to offer a competitive salary and benefits package, opportunities for professional growth, a top-notch first-year teacher mentor program, and a Wellness Program that includes a focus on employee physical and mental health. Teachers who work in Temple ISD stay because of the family-like environment they experience in the district. The staff at Temple ISD love what they do, and it shows through the annual climate survey with a 97% job satisfaction rating. If you have ever considered teaching and have completed a bachelor’s degree, I encourage you to come out and visit with our amazing principals. Those without a bachelor’s degree are encouraged to come and visit about other opportunities in the district, which would include working as a teacher’s aide.”
