Guest teachers to continue to receive $120, or more, per day in pay throughout the spring semester 

Guest teachers in Humble ISD will continue to receive an extra $40 per day in pay through May 27, 2022, under a temporary pay increase approved by the Board of Trustees. 

With the extra $40, guest teachers in Humble ISD will continue to earn $120 per day with 60 or more college hours, $130 per day if degreed, and $140 per day if a Texas certified teacher.  For a retired Humble ISD teacher, the rate is $175 per day.  

In addition, guest teachers can earn an additional $10 a day in certain special education and bilingual positions and an annual $500 stipend if they work 100 or more days in the school year.  Lastly, an additional $10 per day is provided for Monday and Friday assignments. 

The Board first approved the temporary pay increase of an extra $40 per day in September 2021 due to challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in the fall semester. The temporary pay was scheduled to end at the conclusion of the fall semester but has now been approved to be extended throughout the 2021-2022 school year.  

Employers in every industry have faced staffing challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The temporary pay increase is a proactive measure by Humble ISD to attract and retain excellent substitute teachers.  Humble ISD is committed to having dedicated staff in place to keep schools open to support students’ learning, growth, mental health, and physical health. 

“People who work in education bring to the job a passion for serving children and the community. Our principals, teachers, students, and families appreciate all those who serve as guest teachers,” Rick Gardner, Humble ISD Associate Superintendent for Human Resources, said.  

A guest teacher is responsible for providing instruction, managing the classroom environment, and promoting student learning in the absence of the regular classroom teacher. Requirements include 60 or more college hours and a background check. Applications are accepted at
