Now Hiring For Licensed Special Educator

You’ve never worked in a school like ours.

Because our students are unlike anyone else’s. Most of them — but not all of them — are diagnosed with behavioral, emotional, and/or learning disorders, and some of them are on the autism spectrum, all of which means our students need to work with incredibly patient and incredibly empathetic people, people who can move beyond the student’s oftentimes challenging behavior to a place where they’re able to develop mutual trust.

And because our work environment is unlike anyone else’s. First, due to the nature of our students, you’ve got to be ready for anything. Second, our staff (who love to collaborate with one another) are given an unprecedented level of freedom to develop the content and scope of their classes (most of which are one-to-one or with very small groups). Third, our campus is — quite literally — boundaryless. While it includes two main buildings in the heart of Poultney and a seven-acre camp on a large private pond in Wells, we expect our staff to take advantage of all of the learning opportunities Vermont has to offer.

There’s so much more we could tell you about LiHigh School, and you can find out a whole lot more on our website: http://www.lihighschool.org/therapeutic-program/, but until you’ve seen our school for yourself, there’s a real chance you simply won’t believe it.

Licensed Special Educator

We now have an immediate opening a Licensed Special Educator for middle-school and high-school students. If you are open minded, creative, self-guided, and an excellent communicator who loves to collaborate with an energetic team, please contact us ASAP by sending a cover letter, a resume and two to three references to our co-director, Greg Rosenthal, at greg@lihighschool.org.

Seriously, this place isn’t like any other school you’ve ever heard of. It’s LiHigh School. And we’re now hiring.  

LiHigh School is an approved independent school for ages 11-21. Selected applicants must have a cell phone, valid driver’s license and a reliable car, as well as a willingness to transport students to and from school in their own vehicle. Applicants must also be able to pass a background check. Positions are part time at roughly 25 hours per week (not including compensated transportation of students), with the potential to become full time for those who consistently demonstrate a commitment to the growth and excellence of the school and our students.
