How much would a new teacher expect to make in SA? Best school districts?

North East Independent School District

Above said 49k for new teacher? That some hard to get private district?

How difficult would it be for a middle school math teacher to find a job?

Sorry for all the questions thanks.

I'm not a K-12 teacher, but researched the job market before I started an alternative teacher certification program. I left after I was accepted into a PhD program and started teaching college courses. NEISD is a public school district. It's more difficult to get into NEISD and NISD than most of the other public school districts in SA because they are among the most desirable. A teacher certified to teach math should have an easier time getting a job since there is usually a shortage of math teachers.

Generally teachers are inthe 40s in San Antonio. We are not like Austin, Dallas or Houston in regard to one big citywide district. There are many more than just "SAn Antonio" school district. Like L20 said, getting into the more desireable districts can be tough.

Is it "hard" to get a job as a teacher here? That depends. Right place, right time...

That being said, I know that every time there is an opening in NEISD, there can be anywhere from 20-150 applicants (internal and external).

You would start in the low 50's with SAISD. I'll echo what Pobre said, you will have less competition for a middle school math position. But, you will still go against multiple qualified applicants.

Why would it be a hell hole at SAISD?

Can you expand on rough schools? SA has a pretty low black population. You referring to low income hispanic areas?

Sorry if I offended anyone, but where I am from rough schools generally means predominately low income black schools.

SAISD is inner city. Administration is usually stressed in those schools and it is not a positive, encouraging atmosphere. NEISD and NISD also have some rough schools, but it is a way to get your foot in the door. There are other districts to check out. East Central ISD, Harlandale (inner city), Edgewood (inner city), Boerne (great schools), The military bases (Randolph, Fort Sam Houston), etc.
