Brownsville ISD is currently looking for special education and substitute teachers as they struggle to hire teachers.

Patrick Hammes, chief organizer for Brownsville Educators Stand Together, says schools are short-staffed because teachers are afraid to return to the classroom for two reasons - the ongoing pandemic and a lack of pay.

BISD said they have increased their teacher salaries so teachers can now make a minimum of $48,500 a year.
