Build a thriving career.
People come to Midland to raise their families and build prosperous lives. With competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits, Midland Independent School District teachers can do the same.
In the 2017-18 school year, the starting salary for a certified teacher with no prior teaching experience was $49,050. MISD teachers can earn more for holding advanced degrees, having more years of experience, or taking on additional responsibilities.
Our teachers receive free health insurance, as well as the option to enroll in additional insurance programs for dental, supplemental life, disability, catastrophic illness, and long-term care.
"Thanks to the LEAP Program, a pre-K program for the children of MISD teachers, my child is 100% kindergarten ready."
As an MISD teacher, you’ll have online access to a range of university programs through which you can earn an advanced degree.
There are a limited number of homes available for lease by MISD employees.
MISD teachers are also eligible to enroll their children in Learning for Everyone at Preschool (LEAP), the district’s discounted preschool program.
