Teach in Texas
Looking for a great place to teach? You might want to give Denton, TX a good look. Listed as one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. According to articles in the Dallas Morning News and Denton Record Chronicle, both cited SmartAsset stating:
“Denton, New Braunfels and Round Rock are considered American “boomtowns” in a study by financial advisory firm SmartAsset. Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the firm examined 500 cities and ranked them based on positive trends in employment, business creation, population growth, housing growth and household income.
Denton came in second, trailing only Longmont, Colo. It’s known as a college town, serving as the home of the University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University, and often praised for its music culture.
From 2014 to 2018, Denton’s population grew 8% and household income rose 36%. Denton County’s median household income sits at around $86,000 — a decent bit above the national median of almost $62,000.”
New Denton High School
As Denton and the surrounding cities grow, that means more schools. A new Denton ISD is being built on 152 acres of land off of Bonnie Brae in Denton. Developers say that the school will be visible from Interstate 35 and will accommodate up to 2,400 students.
“The project will build upon and incorporate the many strong traditions of Denton High School while creating new learning and teaching opportunities.
‘The new Denton High School design embraces several 21st century learning philosophies that we encourage in Denton ISD including critical-thinking, creativity, and communication. Students will find modern learning spaces that are replete with technology that supports personalized learning yet allows for student-to-student collaboration,” said Dr. Mike Mattingly, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction. “Additionally, the school includes an International Baccalaureate Learning Alcove that will serve as the headquarters for students, teachers, and parents for all matters related to IB.'” (Read Full Article)
