Teachers In Demand in Texas

The past year ended on a high note with news that the unemployment rate fell to a 6-year low; and that the country capped its best year for hiring in 15 years with a healthy job gain in December. (Yahoo News)

Specifically in Texas, over the past year, Texas added jobs in all of the 11 major industries, including professional and business services, trade, transportation and utilities, leisure and hospitality, education and health services, construction, mining and logging, government, financial activities, information, other services, and manufacturing, the Texas Economy reported.

One particular job is in demand in Texas: The Dallas News reports in a recent article that in the Dallas area, 86 school districts use the Teacher Job Network to recruit educators. Since September, year-over-year job postings are up 44 percent, a spokeswoman said. And the peak hiring period is still ahead.
“We have to be mindful of government growing too quickly or too slowly,” said Jason Saving, a senior research economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.
Many leaders attribute Texas’ success to small government and limited regulation. While there’s some truth to that, Saving said, research shows that government spending on public safety and infrastructure often provides a good return on the investment.

Hopefully, the gains of last year continue to create momentum in 2015 to sustain Texas'economic growth, especially create more teaching jobs. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, job outlook for high school teachers all over the country between 2012-2022 is 6% (slower than average); for middle school teachers, the job outlook for the same period is 12% (as fast as average), and so with kindergarten and elementary school teachers. Teacher assistants have a job outlook of 9% (as fast as average), also for the same period; for pre-school teachers, the job outlook is 17% (faster than average), and finally, for special education teachers, it is 6 % (slower than average).
