|School District/Employer:||Waelder ISD|
|Job Title:||Kindergarten Teacher|
|Description/Notes:||Greetings Fellow Educator!
At Waelder Elementary our virtual participation rate has dropped dramatically and live, in-person instruction has increased. In addition, staff who live out of the district have transferred their children to our school (a staff perk) as it has become apparent and word has spread about our enhanced hygiene protocols.As a result, our Kindergarten class needs to be split. Once split, each class will have about 12-14 students.
Your potentially future co-teacher in Kinder has a sunny disposition, is a veteran teacher good at mentoring others, and is bilingual - so our students who are mostly Spanish speaking will remain with her when we transition from one class to two.
The elementary staff is a mixture of veteran staff, several returning to the smaller environs of a 1A school, with two alternative certification staff, one just beginning and another completing the process.
Waelder is southeast of Luling, southwest of Smithville, south of Bastrop, east of Flatonia, west of Seguin, and north of Gonzales.
We have low discipline, an accommodating administration, and the level of bureaucracy is greatly reduced.
