Officials notes guest teachers are responsible for providing instruction, managing the classroom environment and promoting student learning in the absence of the regular classroom teacher.
Humble ISD trustees first approved the temporary pay increase of an extra $40 per day in September 2021 due to challenges rising from the COVID-19 pandemic in the fall semester. The temporary pay was scheduled to end at the conclusion of the fall semester but has now been approved to be extended throughout the 2021-22 school year.
“People who work in education bring to the job a passion for serving children and the community,” said Rick Gardner, Humble ISD associate superintendent for human resources, in a news release. “Our principals, teachers, students, and families appreciate all those who serve as guest teachers.”
Requirements to be a guest teacher include 60 or more college hours and a background check. Applications can be found at www.humbleisd.net.
