How the teacher shortage is affecting the big country


ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – With the shortage of teachers, education majors are taking the time to find a school district that best meets their needs. Annie Gilb is graduating from Abilene Christian University (ACU) this spring and is looking for a school that supports first-grade teachers.

“Creates a safe and loving environment for students and teacher,” Gilb said.

During a workshop meeting with members of the Abilene Independent School District (AISD) Board of Trustees, Ms. Alison Sims, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources, said finding teachers can become a challenge if the shortage persists.

The district is hiring teachers from Hardin Simmons, McMurry and Abilene Christian, but with a smaller graduating class this school year. Sims thinks about the future.

“Before, I would say that our three universities in town were great places to market ourselves. It still does and we still do, but if we just depended on that, we’d be in trouble,” Sims explained.

She added that they have a better chance of finding the best teachers for their students through online job fairs.
