Children require structure and support to flourish. Some teachers have found that greeting each child, individually, every morning establishes mutually beneficial respect and an environment of consistency. Some classes function better with a little less structure and can utilize an open seating and honor system for bathroom visits. Do what's best for you and your class while following guidelines of your school and discussing with other education professionals who can offer tips and best practices, especially if you are a first time teacher or new to a school or district.


On average a teacher affects 3,000 children over the course of their career. That's 3,000 lives, 3,000 smiling faces, 3,000 minds. In school kids learn so much more than math or reading.


On average, each school hires no more than 1 art teacher, that does not leave a lot of openings for hirable positions. The number of limited-English speakers in the state has grown by nearly 50 percent in the last decade with about 1 in 5 students struggling with the language. But in that same time, Texas had a dramatic 20 percent drop in the number of educators working in bilingual and ESL classes.


Remember, all interviews are not created equal. This is especially true for a teaching interview. While there is no one way to say exactly how your interview will go, we've got some tips from top Human Resources personnel, Principals and teachers to help you ace your interview and stand out as a top candidate.
