WSD WANTS YOU To help recruit great teachers & earn extra time for yourself!

Correctional educators with Windham School District have some of the best teaching jobs in the state, and your help is needed to get this word out!  WSD is currently recruiting academic and vocational teachers for its schools statewide, and employees are encouraged to help bring in the best referrals and candidates for Windham teaching jobs.  Employees who successfully refer and recruit new WSD teachers are eligible to earn eight hours of administrative leave per hired teacher.

Holidays and breaks are a great opportunity to visit with friends, family and colleagues about coming to work for Windham! Take advantage of vacation “talk time” and recruit new correctional educators to join our team – and earn a little extra time off for yourself.

“This special referral and opportunity to earn time are now being offered year round,” says Human Resources Department Administrator Mario Cotton.  “We know that some of the best teacher referrals come from Windham educators, so we are very happy to be able to reward our staff year round for helping recruit quality classroom employees.”

For more information, contact WSD HR at 936-291-5321. Complete details concerning the process for making referrals and earning extra time off are also available at
