2023 Teacher Job Fair

Now Seeking: "World Changers"

The Liberty Elementary School District is looking for a select few highly qualified teachers to join the team for the 2023-2024 school year and beyond! Superintendent Lori Shough is "Looking for people who want to change the world!" Hear more from her in this video and be sure to register for the upcoming job fair on February 11. 

Come Grow With us!

At Liberty Elementary School District, we are cultivating curious, confident, problem solvers prepared for tomorrow. We serve more than 4,500 students across seven schools in Buckeye and Goodyear, Arizona. Both cities are among the fastest growing in the nation. Some benefits of joining the Liberty ESD teaching staff include:

Four-day school weeks

In an effort to continue to recruit the highest quality teachers, the Liberty Elementary School District will implement a four-day school week beginning in the 2023-24 school year. Liberty is one of only two districts in Arizona to offer this option.

The idea of a four-day week was first explored last year as a cost-savings measure in response to failing to pass a budget override. After surveying staff and families in the spring, it was clear this idea garnered initial support regardless of how much money it saved. For that reason, combined with the potential to better recruit and retain teachers in a nationwide shortage, the idea was approved for implementation.

Increased flexibility and work-life balance

The four-day school week allows teachers to retain a better work-life balance. Additional personal time will give teachers more time for professional development, to pursue activities outside of school, and keep them fresh and ready to teach every day.

Average teacher compensation package of $64,500

Liberty’s compensation package — which includes salary and a full benefits package — is $64,500. This is greater than the state average, and among the best in the Phoenix area.

In addition, for the last three years, teacher compensation has increased by 10 percent yearly.
