National Heritage Academies (NHA) is committed to having highly qualified teachers in each classroom on the first day of school. For us to achieve this goal, we are hiring certified teachers for the upcoming school year before classroom openings become available. These individuals are our Teachers in Residence (TIR).
The Teacher in Residence (TIR) Role
It is important to start the school year fully staffed, not only for the teachers in the building but also for every child and parent that chooses our schools. Therefore, we are looking to extend offers of employment in advance of identifying the classroom you will teach in.
As the leadership team starts to map out the classroom schedule for the upcoming school year, TIRs will be assigned a specific classroom and will have ample time to work with their dean and other teachers in their grade level in order to prepare for the school year.
- Must hold a valid teacher license in the subject and/or grade level for the state in which you are applying or must be on track to obtain a valid teacher license.
- Candidates with experience working with at-risk students preferred, if applicable to the school.
- Experience with different classroom management strategies and differentiated instruction preferred.
In our schools you will find bright colors, smiling faces, and opportunity. While working at an NHA school you will make a difference in the lives of our over 56,000 students. You will gain invaluable experience and have fun along the way. Here are a few ways we grow and celebrate together; NHA professional development opportunities, community involvement opportunities, and spirit contests amongst staff during designated appreciation weeks.
In this position, a cohesive leadership team of deans will be there to support you every step of the way. Along with our result-driven curriculum and commitment to educating the whole child – academically, morally, and socially – you and your students will be set up for success.
The purpose of the Teacher in Residence position is to pre-hire for potential vacancies by hiring candidates not currently employed with NHA as a classroom teacher. The reason for this is to ensure we have all classrooms filled by the start of the upcoming school year.
If you are a current teacher with NHA, we will be looking at your application after an initial push to hire external candidates. In the meantime, we encourage you to speak with your current principal or dean about your desire to transfer to a different school. If you are not a current teacher at NHA, we will process your application.
