American Heritage Schools invites educators from throughout the country to its virtual “Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair” on Tuesday, March 29 at 7 p.m. From the convenience of their homes via Zoom, attendees will learn about job opportunities available at the schools’ Broward and Palm Beach campuses and earn 1.5 hours of continuing education credit by attending a keynote address given by nationally recognized speaker Jennifer Gonzalez, chief editor of Cult of Pedagogy.
American Heritage Schools is one of the top four largest private schools in the nation and among the top 20 largest employers in South Florida. It is headed by educators rather than a board of directors, and maintains subsidiary departments in-house. The schools also offer free tuition for employees’ children and salary supplementation for additional roles, including tutoring during the year and teaching at the Summer Institute over the summer.
The topic of Gonzalez’s webinar is “What Really Makes a Difference in Teaching?” Gonzalez has more than 10 years of classroom experience, mainly teaching middle school language arts, but also teaching at the collegiate level to train pre-service teachers. She is currently the chief editor of Cult of Pedagogy, a web site she created, where she works full-time helping teachers of all subjects and grade levels practice and perfect the art of teaching. This session will explore four rock-solid truths backed by research on how people learn, and how if followed when planning lessons, it is more likely for real learning to happen for students.
“We are always seeking qualified, determined educators who are motivated to work with the best and brightest students in the nation,” said Dr. Douglas Laurie, president of American Heritage Schools. “Our Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair will give job-seekers the chance to discover who we are and the current positions we have available, while at the same time get empowered and gain knowledge about how to make a powerful impact when teaching from an inspirational speaker.”
