A Career in Independent School Teaching.
National Association of Independent Schools, Boston, MA.
This booklet provides information for teachers who are considering a career in a private or independent school. Descriptions are given of the functions and philosophies underlying private education. Features which distinguish independent schools in the areas of governance, finances, curriculum, and student and faculty selection are discussed. A general description is given of what independent schools can offer a prospective teacher and what these schools expect of their faculty. Suggestions are made on how to look for a job in a private school and include information on preparing a resume, interviewing for a position, and what may be expected in regard to salaries and benefits. Resources on private schools are listed under three headings: directories, general readings, and teacher placement agencies. (JD)
