3) at least 3 references from previous roles
All communication should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may share submission artifacts via email, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. If shared, please open sharing settings so anyone with a link may access to expedite the process.

The interview process will look like this:
Round 1: An interview (virtual or in person) by a small group of current New Harmony staff members. We’re looking for fit, mission alignment, and vision for your potential course. You get to ask the staff members any of your questions too.
Round 2: An interview (virtual or in person) by a small group of current New Harmony students coordinated by a member of Round 1. This round is basically a conversation between you and the students. They want to know how you feel about (among other things) relationships, discipline, behavior, your teaching habits, students with exceptionalities, etc. And you can find out what New Harmony is really about from the student perspective.
For folks applying to teach: if you’ve made it through Round 2, please send us a teaching video, or sample scope and sequence from something you’ve previously taught, or a lesson you create that is specific to your vision for your course at New Harmony, or anything in this family. We’re not too specific on what you send, but it should showcase your creativity, vision, ability to differentiate, and allow for student voice and choice.
Once an offer is made and accepted, we will notify all candidates via email. Please note that our candidate pool often has several very well qualified candidates, and we do retain applications for future positions.

At New Harmony High School, we don’t just accept difference — we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our students, our families, our staff, and our community. New Harmony High School is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace.
A Growing Leadership Team
New Harmony High School (NHH) successfully opened its doors in 2018 with our founding class of 45 students. Since then, word has spread across the region about our unique school which helps foster a deep appreciation for our Louisiana coastal environment, while preparing students for college, career, and beyond. Since that launch year, New Harmony’s student body has successfully expanded to over 300 students in 9th through 12th grade. We are so proud of this tremendous growth and grateful to everyone in the New Harmony community who has helped make this possible, even throughout the challenges of the past two years.
As you can imagine, this progress has also highlighted the need to add additional talent to our team in order to support our expanded school community. To that end, we are expanding our New Harmony leadership team to include an Executive Director. We hope to hire an Interim-Executive Director for the 2022/2023 school year and then begin our external and internal search for a permanent Executive Director (which we hope to complete before the 2023/2024 school year). This new addition will strengthen and support our existing leadership team and we’re thrilled to be able to add this additional role. (The job description will be posted here when it is available.)
Please keep an eye out for news and updates on this and other school news on New Harmony’s website and The Weekly What – which is sent via email every Friday during the school year. As always, thank you for your continued support.
