Amarillo, TX - The number of first-year teachers across the state has decreased significantly over the last few years, but that is not the case for the Amarillo area. According to data from the Texas Education Agency, Texas schools employed fewer than 15,000 first-year teachers in 2012, which is down from the 25,000 that were hired in 2008. While statewide schools employed fewer first-year teachers, Amarillo area schools employed 100 more in 2012 compared to 2011. The increase of first-year teachers could be attributed to Amarillo area schools serving almost 700 more students in 2012.Madison Alewel - NewsChannel 10
