I'm currently an educator living in Louisiana wanting to relocate to the HEB area. How is the employment in the area and what step should I take to get employed so close to the beginning of the school year? I love to teach but is willing to work outside of the classroom until something is available.

You should run a search for teaching on the Fort Worth forum --
you will get lots of hits--
getting a teaching job in HEB is not going to be easy--
you dont give your certification but you can check the HEB ISD web site and see what they have open

you can also check Region 11 TEA web site for all other districts in this area and to check the process to become certified in Texas...

maybe you will get lucky applying later in the year but most job openings have been filled since June so unless something unexpected happens--sudden illness/move or some one gets promotion to counselor or admin staff and leaves a teaching position open--
it is doubtful
most schools are tightening their belts and hiring fewer teachers than last year

you may be working as a sub for a while--
jobs are tight
sometimes things open up right before school starts--and I mean the week of/day of--
but you should send your resume and cover info to principals in schools where you would want to work--not just apply on line
that way is a job does open up your info is at hand...
and make sure that you are signed up for sub work--so you can do the orientation asap
some people who subbed last year--did their orientation already and are on the rolls--
last year districts quite taking new names and did not run new orientation session after October
they had plenty of subs
and I am sure they will this year too

Saginaw opened up their application for the sub pool July 6 and already closed it because they got over 200 apps. I just moved to the area and was trying to get into the sub pool while I worked on transferring my cert to Texas, but it had already closed!! Competition is tough around here, and I'm special ed with a MsEd.
