New Faculty Orientation (NFO)

Who: New Hires*
Begins: July 12, 2021
Where: The Teacher Resource Portal (online)

New Faculty Orientation (NFO) and Training (NFT) is designed for new hires to gain a deeper understanding of Great Hearts as an organization while also preparing them for the upcoming school year. The courses offered during training are designed with pedagogy and content in mind – an opportunity to develop and hone the art of teaching. These courses will enrich both teacher and the classroom.

Keep an eye out for communications from your headmaster/academy about your academy’s specific summer training plans and details.

*Veteran teachers are welcome to re-visit topics from NFO on the Teacher Resource Portal at any time.
