Teaching as a Profession
Teachers are the most important part of Hillsdale classical schools. They are answering the high calling of imparting civilization—language, knowledge, and virtue—to the next generation. Teachers craft their own lessons, and they are given the authority and respect to manage their classrooms. They are supported by school leaders and fellow teachers at their campus and beyond who seek to improve their craft together and who desire to share in a community of academic discipline, knowledge, and wonder.
We encourage all teachers of common purpose to join us. Visit “Career Opportunities” to see how you can be involved in this good work.
Teaching with Support
Part of Hillsdale's work is bringing together teachers from across our nationwide network. Our annual conference, virtual support, in-person visits, and other initiatives help connect teachers to others like them across the country. Teachers can exchange ideas, see how another teacher or school works, and form a community with people doing the same important work.
Hillsdale College provides teachers at its Member Schools with a variety of training and resource opportunities, including the following:
- Extensive on-site professional development for new schools
- Monthly conference calls, led by K-12 Education staff and master teachers in our network
- An online library of curriculum and pedagogical resources
- Annual Conference in American Classical Education for all Member School teachers and staff, held at Hillsdale College
- Regular newsletters featuring updates, links to resources, and tips throughout the year
- In-person visits and feedback from the Hillsdale K-12 Education staff
- Connections to the network of teachers and staff at Hillsdale schools nationwide
