Laura Birdwell, the teacher recruitment officer for Great Hearts Academies in Arizona and Texas will be visiting campus to speak with students who are considering careers in teaching (Nov. 11th, 6pm, Lee Hall 412).
Great Hearts is a chartered public primary and secondary institution with 22 schools in AZ and 3 in TX which offers a classical curriculum. Students begin taking Latin early (in some schools as early as kindergarten!) and have the option of taking ancient Greek or a modern European language in high school. The school is secular; all students wear uniforms; they read Plato from an early age. The current waitlist is 13,000 students.
Great Hearts is looking for highly qualified teachers who have strong liberal arts degrees.
