Grand Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
While school districts across the country are eliminating teaching jobs, National Heritage Academies (NHA) is creating new schools and new teaching positions as a result of continued growth. The nationwide system of charter schools currently operates more than 70 schools in nine states. This year, NHA has added three new schools in Michigan resulting in 79 new teaching positions. Teaching positions have also been created nationwide, and as a result National Heritage Academies hopes to hire approximately 600 new teachers by August 6, 2012.
National Heritage Academies will be opening the following schools in fall 2012:
- Plymouth Scholars Charter Academy in Plymouth, Michigan. (serving K-6th grade)
- River City Scholars Charter Academy in Grand Rapids, Michigan (serving K-5th grade)
- South Pointe Scholars Charter Academy in Ypsilanti, Michigan (serving K-6th grade)
National Heritage Academies seeks to fill a wide range of teaching positions in schools located throughout the Midwest, Georgia, Colorado, New York, North Carolina, and Louisiana. Schools in Buffalo, N.Y., Baton Rouge, La., Milwaukee, Wis., and Atlanta, Ga., have the most teaching positions to fill, and NHA is actively recruiting teaching applicants for these areas. Teachers with dual endorsements in middle school subject areas such as Math/Science and Language Arts/Social Studies are in high demand. NHA also seeks Spanish teachers for K-8 positions nationwide.
National Heritage Academies is particularly interested in recruiting teaching applicants who are recent college graduates. As a nationwide charter school system dedicated to excellence – both for students and for teachers – NHA offers many opportunities for professional development for teachers as well as a broad network of support and teacher resources.
“The growth we’ve seen can really be attributed to our core values and commitment to the professional development of our teachers,” NHA Talent Acquisition Director Adam Maurer commented. “Our schools are founded on the principles of academic excellence, moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility. Our goal is to prepare each student for high school, college and beyond. We work to maintain these values in every single NHA classroom by attracting the best and brightest teachers. We’re thrilled to create new opportunities for teachers, and we feel that our school system offers some of the best resources available for teachers who are new to the field.”
