OPPORTUNITIES FOR TEACHINGIndependent private schools are particularly interested in promoting diversity in teaching and administrative positions. For first year teachers, GISA and other association conduct annual New Teacher Workshops and/or mentor programs. Information will be available at the Job Fair on each school and how to apply. All schools are equal opportunity employers.
WHO QUALIFIES TO TEACH?To be eligible to teach in an independent school in Georgia, you must have at least a BA or BS from an accredited college or university. Strong academic backgrounds are often preferred, as well as Georgia Certification. Previous teaching, life experiences, and willingness to participate in many aspects of the school’s program are also significant.
WHY TEACH AT A PRIVATE, INDEPENDENT
OR PAROCHIAL SCHOOL?Independent or parochial schools are predominately private non-profit, preschool, elementary and secondary schools governed by a Board of Trustees, or local religious governing body. Their financial support comes from tuition, private gifts, grants, and endowments.
Teachers at such schools experience a personal, family-like work environment, a sense of community, high academic expectations, and highly motivated students. There are opportunities to shape courses and curriculum, and a chance to affect the total development of young people through work in and out of the classroom. There are small classes and few problems with discipline. Each school only admits students who will benefit most from its programs.
Salary compensation, benefits, teaching load, schedule, and extra assignments will vary with each school. Skills, interests, and talent beyond specific teaching credentials can be important.
