One of the essential responsibilities of Franklin Academy’s administration is recruiting, training, and retaining a dedicated group of teachers. The school seeks veteran educators and young professionals passionate about serving students with learning differences. We value creativity and collaboration, abundant energy and high professional standards, compassion and commitment, flexibility, initiative, and a good sense of humor!
A core of our teachers comes to Franklin Academy with a background in special education; however, certification in this field is not a prerequisite for employment. Though we will only consider candidates who demonstrate solid competency in a particular subject area, we seek teachers who can deliver the school’s skills-based curriculum and are eager to live the full life of this “round-the-clock” boarding school community. Franklin Academy also insists that each colleague embrace the philosophical framework of a team-based approach to educating students.
Today, we welcomed our new teachers to campus to begin their comprehensive orientation. Next Monday, our veteran teachers will join us to prepare for the new school year.
