Mr. Jack Johnson signs to teach at Leaguetown High School; three other teachers sign to new schools

In a move to advance his career, Mr. Jack Johnson, math teacher, has been recruited to take his talents east and teach at Leaguetown High School. He signed his letter of intent this morning.

“I can’t believe I have been giving this opportunity,” Jackson said.

Jackson will receive a record $1.9 million dollar contract with Leaguetown ISD over three years. This is due to his student’s historic STAAR scores.

“It’s really all about the kids,” Jackson said. “However, now I can pay back my student loans.”

Jackson isn’t the only teacher to sign to new schools. Ms. Alice Anderson, Mr. Bob Binsen, and Mrs. Carley Cortez all signed to new schools.

Anderson is heading west and will receive a contract worth $1.5 million dollars. Binsen is heading to New England, receiving a contract worth $1.2 million dollars. And Cortez will be heading to Puerto Rico, receiving a contract worth $985,000.

“We are molding the future,” Binsen said. “It’s nice to be treated as such.”

Cortez echoed the sentiment of feeling appreciated.

“I remember the time when teachers were paid $55,000,” Cortez said. “I don’t know how we survived. I don’t know how I spent money on things for my classroom and still was able to buy myself dinner. Now, I feel worthy.”

The teachers have said that their first goal is to pay off their student loans. Then, they will buy their students books.
