Why JHCISD

Jim Hogg County Independent School District seeks to have a highly effective teacher in every classroom.

As a teacher in Jim Hogg County ISD, your impact goes far beyond the students sitting in the desks of your classroom. For many students, just having an adult who believes in them can be life-changing. When a teacher works with a student to help them realize their goals, they build the confidence needed for them to go out and achieve great things.

Our teacher to student ratio (13:1) is small when compared to a large school district. If you are looking to teach respectful children who want to learn; then you are looking at the right district. We are also becoming one of the fastest improving districts in Texas.

In order for students to be engaged at all times in the classroom, we need teachers who are willing to go beyond the lesson plan and make learning an interactive, dynamic experience. When we focus on improving the quality of instruction, and commit to the development and continuous support of those leading our classrooms, our students reap the rewards by being better prepared to achieve scholastic success.

We look for teachers who are critical thinkers, excellent problem solvers, and continuously want to improve their craft and those who embrace diversity that exists in their classrooms. They strive to become experts in their content area and have a toolbox full of instructional strategies they readily use to meet the needs of every learner.

If you are looking for a rewarding career, we challenge you to join our team!
