The primary purpose of a Mary’s Home Academy teacher is to provide a safe, calm, loving, respectful, interactive, and experiential learning environment for Mary’s Home students. Teachers must be willing to set aside preconceived notions and seek to understand the cultural backgrounds and experiences of individuals coming out of trauma. Teachers must be highly coachable, highly skilled, and highly adaptable in areas specific to the characteristics and needs of the student population. Teachers enter into a "transformational relationship" with the student which focuses on learning through trust. This trust is developed by creating an environment where students are listened to, valued, affirmed, and protected. Students are empowered by teachers to be shapers of their own learning and learning experiences. Teachers therefore embrace a facilitator role, which emphasizes psychomotor activities, dialogue, and peer-to-peer learning.

A complete volunteer position description will be sent upon expressing interest in this opportunity.

Our volunteer application process includes a virtual tour, application, references, volunteer handbook receipt & acknowledgement, interview, and background check.
