Bay City ISD Human Resource and Recruitment Manager Jordan Krauskopf represented Bay City ISD at a career fair at Texas Southern University on Thursday, September 23.
Krauskopf went to TSU, the alma mater of BCISD Superintendent Dr. Marshall Scott III, to show off the many perks and advantages of teaching in BCISD. This was the first time Krauskopf had marketed BCISD to TSU students.
"It was a great success at getting our name out," Krauskopf said. "I met a lot of people in their Department of Education."
Krauskopf highlighted the sign-on bonuses and stipends available to new teachers in the district. She also pointed out the curriculum available for new teachers to help them find their footing in the classroom, which is something that many districts are not able to offer.
The ideal candidate, Krauskopf said, is someone that is about to graduate and has passed their content exam. Those that need to complete their student teaching are also welcome in BCISD.
While at the fair, Krauskopf also met several representatives from large companies that expressed interest in hiring Bay City High School graduates right out of school. BCHS offers many certifications in areas like welding and health sciences that enable students to enter the workforce immediately after graduation.
Krauskopf and the BCISD HR team will go to Lamar University and the University of Houston-Victoria on Nov. 9, and will travel to Texas A&M Corpus-Christi on Nov. 10.
