An essential responsibility of Franklin Academy’s administration is the recruitment, training, and retention of a dedicated group of teachers. Consequently, the school seeks veteran educators and young professionals who share a passion for serving students with learning differences. Each must demonstrate solid competency in a particular subject area and be able to deliver the school’s skills-based curriculum. Every Franklin Academy teacher embraces the full life of this “round-the-clock” boarding school community, collaborating closely with colleagues in a team-based approach to educating students. There are also essential personal attributes. We value creativity, abundant energy, high professional standards, compassion, and commitment, as well as flexibility and initiative. Most importantly, the successful teacher at Franklin Academy must have a good sense of humor!
