National Heritage Academies
Position Details: 



The first step in creating a truly great classroom environment is finding a strong teacher to lead it. Bring your passion for educating our youth to National Heritage Academies (NHA) as a Teacher in Residence to one of our NHA partner schools.


Our Schools

NHA is committed to the goal of having highly qualified teachers in each classroom on the first day of school. In order to do so, we will be hiring certified teachers for the coming school year in advance of having an assigned classroom.


In our schools you will find bright colors, smiling faces, and opportunity. While working at an NHA partner school you will make a difference in the lives of our over 500 students. You will gain invaluable experience and have fun along the way. Here are a few ways we grow and celebrate together; NHA professional development opportunities, a company-wide March Madness tournament, and spirit contests amongst staff during designated appreciation weeks. 

In this position, a cohesive leadership team of deans will be there to support you every step of the way. Along with our result-driven curriculum and commitment to educating the whole child – academically, morally, and socially – you and your students will be set up for success. 

Your Role

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 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.


  • Must hold a valid teacher license in the subject and/or grade level for the state in which you are applying
  • Candidates with experience working with at-risk students – preferred, if applicable to the school
