The Great Hearts Teacher Career Pathway is designed to
recognize and develop teacher excellence
      thus supporting
career stability and advancement for our best talent.

This ensures excellent service to students and to all other faculty.

This project will give greater clarity to two distinct career pathways:
1) a path to academy and regional leadership
2) a path to remain in the classroom for one’s entire career

A sketch of the two paths we want to describe

Those interested in making a career at Great Hearts should see either path as viable and attractive.
