Great kids

 

In our classes of 18-27 students, you will get to know them well.  Discipline takes up very little of your time so you can focus on the learning.  We have a diverse population with 42% minority, 22% English Language Learners, and 51% eligible for free or reduced priced meals.  We believe this diversity is one of our greatest assets as our graduates are ready to thrive in a diverse setting. 

 

 

 

Opportunities abound

Students in Holyoke have  many opportunities to find their strengths.  We offer full K-12 art, music and PE programs.  Students have multiple choices for sports each season and our clubs compete nationally each year.  The Jr./Sr. High has its own TV studio and we also have opened an Alternative School for those who need it.

Technology focus

Our District has made a commitment to providing staff and students with top-notch technology.  While we are not at our goal yet, we have made tremendous strides in the last few years.  All teachers have a laptop computer and every classroom is outfitted with a Promethean Board.  The schools have mobile computer labs that can be checked out, and we continue to expand the amount of technology available.  We recently added a new high-speed wireless Internet backbone throughout the district.

 

 



Supportive community

As a teacher in the district, you will immediately feel the support of the community with outstanding participation at conferences and volunteers everywhere you turn.  Our PIE Group (Parents Involved in Education) who annually donates about $3,000 a year to the schools.  Our local Foundation also donates each year through its identified projects.  Our community passed a mill levy override for the schools focused on teacher, technology, and critical repairs.

 

Professionals valued

As a teacher you have 9 personal days to use at your discretion.  We believe that teachers want to be in the classroom, but when family and personal matters require you to be out of the building, you need the support of your employer. Our principals work with their teachers to support them in these cases or for a few minutes here or there.  Our district also has an annual survey and utilizes several committees to be sure that teachers’ voices are heard and that classroom views are honored in policy development.

 

COMPETITIVE SALARIES

We offer a competitive starting salary of $33,500, 4th best in the area, for a first year teacher plus a full benefits package.  Over the past four years, teachers in our district have received $4500 in bonuses.  We cannot always provide bonuses, but staff is clearly a priority for our Board and administration.
