Months after voters gave the nod for a new pre-kindergarten program in San Antonio, officials are coming to the Metroplex looking to hire teachers and other employees before the program launches in August, according to a news release.
The City of San Antonio is holding a job fair in Dallas on April 4. They are seeking to hire more than 100 positions, including master teachers (who will start at a $60,000 annual salary), teacher assistants, nurses and professional and administrative staff. It's an informational job fair, so resumes and applications are not being accepted at the event.
The "Pre-K 4 SA" program gained national attention when voters approved it in November 2012. Four "model education centers" are planned to provide prekindergarten instruction for 2,000 four-year-olds. Staffers are being hired for the first two centers, scheduled to open in August.
Master teachers must have: at least three years of early childhood teaching experience, a teaching certificate with endorsements to teach early childhood education from any state's educator certification department and the ability to get Texas certification.DFW job fair details:
