Educators influence lives and help change the world.

Texas is home to 1,200 public school districts and almost 9,000 public schools. As more families and students move into the state, it’s no wonder that education jobs are among the fastest-growing careers in Texas.

Across the state, education is a hot market. In West Texas, elementary and secondary teachers are needed; Austin, secondary and middle school; and in Tarrant County, preschool. East Texas projects a need for more than 1,000 administrators in elementary and secondary schools. From opportunities in grade school to high school, special education to bi-lingual, education can be a career that begins as a teacher and transitions to administration.
