I live in Grapevine Colleyville ISD and have several contacts that work or have worked in HEB ISD (Hurst Euless Bedford). I have heard good things about the support from administration and pay compared to other districts. The population in those schools can vary a lot as lots of socioeconomic territory is covered in HEB. There are many safe areas surrounding HEBISD and good commuting distance.

I would avoid Saginaw schools. My son does some freelance work that takes him all over DFW high schools and he was shocked by what he saw at the Saginaw schools. (DM me if you want details).

Some areas you could look that would be nice but maybe have some affordability:

Feeding into Timber Creek HS in Keller ISD
Feeding into Birdville HS in Birdville ISD
Feeding into Trinity High School in the HEB area
Feeding into Northwest HS in Northwest ISD (although I have heard Northwest as a district has had a lot of upheaval recently.)

Try also Argyle, which is somewhat North and inbetween FW and Dallas.

Your budget is unfortunately low for this area. Is there something bringing you to Texas specifically? Are you considering any other areas?

Why does everyone keep giving her advice based on schools? She specifically said her daughter is past school age.

She is a school teacher looking for employment.

Budget is low no matter where. OP did not mention where she is with her TX certification. She also did not mention cash or mortgage.

I was telling her what schools to look for work, where she might also have hope of living relatively nearby on her budget, that aren't completely crappy.

This is completely bizarre to me. It's one thing to say that you've heard such and such school is a good school to work at. But to talk about feeder zones? Give me a break. You know there are elementary and middle schools that are great to work at that don't feed to good high schools, right? And you can live close enough to a school to have a reasonable commute and still not be in that school's zone. And Great Schools rankings don't exactly line up with what would be a good school to work at. The list goes on, but this is completely bizarre to me.

I've heard a lot of ways of describing portions of a city, but this is the first time I've ever heard people using feeder zones to describe what portions of a city are nice when it's not in the context of picking a house based on the public school quality.

"Hey Johnny, is this a nice part of town?"

"By golly, I do believe we're in the blah blah feeder zone, so it sure is!"

I know DFW people are obsessed with talking about schools, but you guys need to get some air...or maybe smoke a joint.

I do not see a public forum as a platform for PM gossip. If it is of interest it is of interest for all.
