The Hiring Process

While our busiest hiring period is during the summer months, we are always accepting applications from Why Sayers with a flexible mind-set who would be a great addition to our team.

Facilitators (Teachers)

After applying, the first step toward a full-time facilitator position is being invited to one of our Star Search hiring events, held throughout the school year. Star Search is a full-day, interactive job interview involving multiple stakeholders (facilitators, learners, and parents). Typically, eight to ten candidates are invited to a Star Search event following the initial screening process.

The day’s focus:

  • Receive an orientation on our history, philosophy, and culture.
  • Mingle with staff.
  • Teach a 45-60-minute class appropriate to their content background. Following the lesson, learners (students) and staff complete feedback forms.
  • Observe classrooms as part of a school tour.
  • Informally interview learners and parents.
  • Work in teams along with current staff to design projects to present to the Maker Learning Network family.
