Mobile County Public Schools is looking for enthusiastic and inspiring math and science teachers to work in specially designated schools.
The school system is offering $10,000 signing bonuses at these schools for certified math and science teachers who agree to teach there for three years beginning with the 2016-17 school year.
The schools are: Calloway-Smith, Chastang, Denton Magnet School of Math and Science, Eanes, Mobile County Training, Scarborough, Pillans and Washington middle schools; and Blount, Rain, Vigor and Williamson high schools.
The Mobile County Board of School Commissioners approved this signing bonus during a recent meeting.
Teachers who are hired to work in these schools may also be eligible for forgiveness of certain types of student loans.
Those who apply must have a current Valid Alabama Teaching Certificate and be designated as Highly Qualified in either science or math.
Those who do not have a teaching certificate but who have a degree in math, science or a related field may be eligible for an alternative certification route.

Teachers with an alternative certification are not eligible for the signing bonus, but are still invited to apply for the math and science teaching positions.
The signing bonus will be paid out over three years.
The salary will be based on the state’s Salary Matrix but also depends on a candidate’s degree and years of experience. Beginning pay for a teacher with a bachelor’s degree is $38,342.
