Careers at Paideia
Why Teach at Paideia?
The strong sense of community is what brings so many people to Paideia--teachers and families. Teachers genuinely care about their students, their families, and each other. Because teachers are valued and supported, they are able to do their very best work. Teachers are given respect and autonomy in the classroom allowing them to craft courses that are meaningful to teachers and students alike. It is a community that thrives on learning and encourages its teachers and students to value education as a lifelong pursuit.
“Every day I get to refine my understanding of the academic subjects I love the most...I enjoy spending time with young people. But what keeps me teaching is that...a significant part of being a teacher is just being myself, in the best way I know how. And a large part of what makes Paideia great are the faculty who inspire students with a myriad of ways to be, pursuits to follow, and things to care about, just by being themselves.”
