Dear Wonderful APA Parents!
We are so excited to start the new year!!
We find ourselves in need of Elementary Instructors. With unemployment at historically low levels, we are finding it very challenging to staff our instructor positions. It occurred to us that our Instructor Position is quite unique, and most people don’t know really what it is, or what a great position it is.
I was an Instructor in the 4th grade at the school that American Prep is modeled after. It was during that wonderful year, working as an instructor that I learned all about what an excellent school “looked like”, and when I moved to Utah the next year, decided to try to create an excellent school here.
Instructors are assistants to the classroom teachers for much of the school day, and they get to be with the students at recess and lunch. Instructors teach their own reading, math and spelling classes, so they get to know the curriculum and learn to teach. We provide all training needed! There are no degree requirements for instructors. We are looking for people who can be positive and energetic and kind!
Instructors earn $12-14 per hour depending upon their education and experience. They work 36 hours per week and so are considered “full-time” and receive health benefits.
We find that the following people make GREAT instructors!
Parents!!! Any parents who are positive, enthusiastic and willing to learn make great instructors!
Young people who have graduated from high school and aren’t sure what they want to study in college yet.
Young people who are in online college.
People of any age who are in online college!
Teachers who have been out of teaching for some time, and would like to come back – this is a nice, gradual way for re-entry into education
People who think they may want to change careers to teaching, but need a chance to see what it would be like
People who are looking to make a difference in the world!
