  • Policy & Licensure Michael Maher, Director of Professional Education Our inquiry focuses on the intent of the legislature with specific application to teachers who are entrusted with the care of small children and adolescents. We do not hesitate to conclude that these men and women are intended by parents, citizenry and lawmakers alike to serve as good examples for their young charges. Their character and conduct may be expected to be above those of the average individual no working in so sensitive a relationship as that of teacher to pupil. It is not pupil. inappropriate or unreasonable to hold our teachers to a higher standard of personal conduct, given the youthful conduct, ideals they are supposed to foster and elevate (emphasis added).
  • Policy & Licensure Michael Maher, Director of Professional Education That the school authorities have the right and duty to screen the officials, teachers, and employees as to their fitness to maintain the integrity of the schools as a part of ordered society cannot be doubted (emphasis added).

  • Finding a Teaching Position Grant Holley, Director of Distance Education Identify counties of interest Submit application to county office Find/hear about open position-Use county websites. Contact principal either by email or phone We can advise, but can NOT intervene directly.
  • Job Fairs Not always worth your time Hires made very seldom Good Interview experience
  • When you get a position Inform us where you are teaching Send us a copy of your Provisional License and the letter that accompanies it from the school
  • If you do not get a job You can remain in the NC TEACH program and complete all classes You cannot be licensed without a job You will have to do either student teaching OR a obtain a Lateral Entry position
  • Final Thoughts I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher I possess tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized. — Dr. Haim G. Ginott
