The Limestone County Career Technical will soon hire for a full time position as a high school teacher teaching engineering and robotics. The program is established and on its 5th year. The responsibilities of the position will include regular classroom teaching as well as mentoring our FIRST robotics program (Team 34), and our underwater robotics (MATE) team.
The program accepts students from 7 different local public high schools. More students apply each year than are physically capable of being served, which causes there to be a selection process to recruit top students. The classroom is well-equipped, with a large lab and several other rooms. Equipment that belongs to the engineering/robotics program includes a 3D printer, laser engraver, CNC mill, CNC lathe, etc.
The school is in Athens, Alabama. It is a public school position, 187 day contract, and paid on this salary schedule: ](http://images.pcmac.org/Uploads/LimestoneCountySchools/LimestoneK12/SubDepartments/DocumentsCategories/Documents/2016-2017_Salary_Schedule.pdf)
On page 10, it shows the certified teacher’s salary schedule. Years of experience are given for either work as a teacher, or work in the same field. For example, if you have never taught high school, but you have 10 years experience working in engineering, you would start $44,779 if you have a bachelor’s degree and $51,495 if you have a master’s degree. There are also supplements for the robotics coaching. The head robotics advisor (which is currently already filled) earns $4,500 plus 7 days pay. The assistant coach (which is currently open) earns $1,500.
The position is currently not posted, but will be posted in the coming weeks. Please let me know if you have any questions.
