Thank you for your interest in exploring employment opportunities at AIM.
In choosing potential faculty and staff, AIM administrators look for candidates who possess strong language skills, a passion for working with children with learning disabilities, and the dedication necessary to become an outstanding teacher. AIM Academy teachers are lifelong learners. We are seeking educators with a strong work ethic, an intellectual curiosity, and a desire to be part of an organization that brings the research into the classroom on a daily basis. Nancy Hennessy, former President of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and former national LETRS trainer stated the following, "Learning is the work at AIM, not just for students but also for staff."
AIM is searching for candidates who are willing to be engaged members of our professional learning community. We believe in a professional learning system grounded in research and effective professional learning practices that are sustained, content-embedded, and collegial. Participation in professional learning opportunities occurs as soon as employment begins and continues as long as a teacher remains on the faculty. Seminars, webinars, workshops, and presentations offered by consultants, faculty members, and nationally and internationally recognized educators support faculty in their professional growth and provide up-to-date research findings. The AIM Institute for Learning & Research offers numerous courses, workshops, and lectures throughout the school year and are available to AIM faculty and staff.
AIM is committed to providing faculty with a meaningful continuum of learning opportunities whether it is Wilson Reading System® Level I or II Certification, LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling), Orton-Gillingham, math and writing training or participating in a variety of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). New faculty members are supported by a scaffolded system that includes the assignment of a critical friend, coaching and guidance of an experienced instructional leader and membership in collaborative grade level teams throughout their first two years as an AIM educator.
A coaching model validated by the latest implementation science serves to help all faculty members, but especially those new to the school, to be reflective of their teaching skills. The friendly and dedicated AIM faculty provides a nurturing professional environment in which all members are encouraged to develop into outstanding educators.
We hope that you see a challenging and exciting opportunity in the prospect of becoming part of the AIM professional community. For more information, please review our website.
