Teachers Make a Difference: Being an Educator in 2020

Ashley Austin is a newly hired seventh grade teacher in CFBISD.  As she prepares to begin her first year teaching at Blalack Middle School, she is excited about working in a district where she says, “I can’t wait to come to work everyday with others who genuinely love what they do. I changed careers to become a teacher because I wanted to serve a greater purpose in society, and I feel like I have entered the perfect environment to grow as an educator and make a positive impact in the lives of my students.  I was really drawn in by the diversity of the employees and students in CFBISD. I believe both staff and students thrive in a dynamic, inclusive environment.  I received offers from other great school districts but the choice was not difficult - there was no doubt in my mind that CFBISD was the place for me.”

Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD is a great place to be an educator enriching the lives of students.  Over 1,600 highly qualified teachers work in CFBISD, where we offer competitive pay for all staff, including a starting pay of $56,450 for first year teachers, great benefits, and a positive environment where teachers can make a difference in the lives of their students.

“We believe that education is the most noble of all professions, and in CFBISD every employee is valued,” said Dr.Derrell Coleman, Chief of Staff for Personnel Services.  “The work is important, and in CFBISD the people who do the work are our most valuable resource.  If education is your calling, Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD is the place for you to serve.”
