Flagship Charter Academy – Teacher in Residence Opportunity

About Flagship

Challenging Each Child to Achieve…

National Heritage Academies has partnered with a voluntary local school board to create Flagship Charter Academy, a no-cost public charter school. Our school is designed to eliminate the achievement gap and provide a public school choice to your family so your child is prepared for success in high school, college, and beyond.

 

Teacher in Residence Position

It is important to start the school year fully staffed, not only for the teams of 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 position. As the leadership team starts to map out the classroom schedule for the upcoming school year, transitional teachers will be assigned a specific classroom and will have ample time to work with their dean and team of teachers in order to prepare for the school year.

 

Attention National Heritage Academies (NHA) Employees

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 2017-18 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.

NHA staff and students take Personal Responsibility in Delivering Excellence – P.R.I.D.E.
