Teaching at the FPHRC
There are many opportunities for those interested in teaching at the Center! The Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center welcomes professional teachers, as well as parents who have a passion and want to share it with others!
The Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center does not hire teachers, rather we provide a space for teachers to share their gifts and knowledge! All of our teachers are self-employed. You set the perimeters for your class, you set the fees.
Homeschooling works, in part because it encourages a love of learning. We want to keep that love of learning alive by inviting you to teach a class on something you feel passionate about. It can be almost anything!
REQUIREMENTS TO TEACH
1: Must sign a basic evangelical Christian statement of faith. This is required for all teachers and leaders.
2: Pass a background check. Every teacher must pass a background check. A small fee is attatched.
3: Be committed to your classes, and your students. Teachers must be committed to show up for every class, and do their best not to not cancel. We understand some things are out of our control, if you must cancel a class day, schedule a make-up class.
4: Non-compete. After you submit your application, if we find that we already have a similar class being offered, we may ask you to change it up a bit, so that we have better variety and so that teachers won't be "competing" with the same classes.
5. Attend Mandatory Teacher Meetings. Good communication is key to a successful team! We don't meet very often, but when we do, we ask that all teachers are present. Typically we will meet once at the beginning and end of each session.
6. 10% Pay-Back. The Resource Center requires that all teachers pay back 10% of what they make in Teacher Fees to the Center. This money goes directly into our Scholarship Fund to help aid families who can't afford classes.
