We are pleased to announce the 2022 GISA Job Fair – an engaging in-person experience where job-seeking Candidates will meet with GISA Member School Representatives, all in one place – on one day.
Candidates will have the opportunity to share resumes, ask questions, and make their best first impression. GISA School representatives will provide valuable information about their school and the position(s) they are seeking to fill. All schools are equal opportunity employers.
CLICK HERE to RSVP and let us know if you will attend.
Candidates should bring multiple copies of their resumes to distribute to the school reps.
To be eligible to teach in an independent school in Georgia, you must have at least a BA or BS from an accredited college or university. Strong academic backgrounds are often preferred, as well as Georgia Certification. Previous teaching, life experiences, and willingness to participate in many aspects of the school’s program are also significant.
OR PAROCHIAL SCHOOL?
Independent or parochial schools are predominately private non-profit, preschool, elementary, and secondary schools governed by a Board of Trustees, or local religious governing body. Their financial support comes from tuition, private gifts, grants, and endowments.
Teachers at such schools experience a personal, family-like work environment, a sense of community, high academic expectations, and highly motivated students. There are opportunities to shape courses and curriculum, and a chance to affect the total development of young people through work in and out of the classroom. There are small classes and few problems with discipline. Each school only admits students who will benefit most from its programs.
Salary compensation, benefits, teaching load, schedule, and extra assignments will vary with each school. Skills, interests, and talent beyond specific teaching credentials can be important.
