I live in Houston, and would really like to work in Katy ISD. However I've heard Katy ISD is one of the hardest districts to get hired, especially if you don't have public school experience like myself. I'd really like to teach in Katy ISD. Any tips of how to get hired? I went onto the Katy website and right now they are only hiring internal applicants. I've done an application in hopes later on in the hiring season they'll hire externally, but am getting discouraged seeing all the "interanal applicants only". However I do know of a classmate of mine who was hired in Katy ISD as a first year teacher several years ago, but that was before the economy got bad. Anyone know of other school districts on the west side of Houston that might not be as difficult as Katy that would be worth applying to? I've already applied to CyFair and Spring Branch as well.
