Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) is an association of private, independent, and parochial K-12 schools in Georgia. We are pleased to announce the GISA Virtual Job Fair – an engaging virtual experience where job-seeking Candidates will meet with GISA Member School Representatives, all in one place – ONLINE.
Candidates will have the opportunity to share resumes, ask questions, and make their best first impression on a virtual live platform. GISA School representatives will provide valuable information and a “look” inside their school campuses. All schools are equal opportunity employers.
CLICK HERE to join us for this innovative approach to the familiar job fair experience.
Candidates (GUESTS) must REGISTER and upload their resume prior to attending the event on February 21.
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.
