Intangible Benefits of Working at Springer School and Center

  • We are mission focused, all working toward the same purpose, guided by clearly articulated values.  All efforts are focused on individuals with learning disabilities.
  • We operate with the philosophy of teamwork.  Board, staff, parents and students are active partners in executing our mission.  There is a feeling of openness and trust among all stake holders.
  • We are an ever evolving, researched-based faculty with a strong emphasis on using state of the art instruction and best practice in our work with children.
  • As a vital member of this energetic community, each staff member is respected and valued for his/her individual contributions to the efforts of a multidisciplinary team on behalf of children.  There is academic freedom to problem-solve with team members around the academic and social issues of a child; there is latitude in the approaches to instructional/behavioral issues, not a prescribed approach or prohibitive channels.  There are few bureaucratic constraints.
  • In our nurturing and stimulating environment, there are opportunities for personal and professional growth, for developing creativity and sustaining close relationships within the community.  There is a strong system of support for continued growth and development.  
  • Staff members are empowered to influence many aspects of school life and to contribute to the development of school policies and practices.  There is an easy access to administrators - all ideas are entertained.  Staff gets to know Board members and, through opportunities such as committee work, their input is considered in decision making processes. 
  • There is opportunity to work on teams, with colleagues who are highly competent, passionate about teaching and learning, high performing, productive and energetic, with strong work ethics.
  • School size and small student-to-teacher ratio guarantees that every child is considered individually.  All academic and social interventions are child-focused, developmentally appropriate, not curriculum driven.  There is easy access to multi-sensory, instructional resources as well as supplies.  In this environment, staff can truly make a difference in children’s lives.
  • Desire, not obligation, is the independent school teacher’s motivation for staying after school to plan instruction, meet with team members to problem-solve around student needs and dialogue with parents.
