Hiring Young Teachers

May 18, 2023
By Donald M. Larson, PhD., Head of School

Next week we will be recognizing teachers who are retiring or moving on from GCS. This means that we have to hire teachers, which is becoming an increasingly more difficult task. Finding qualified teachers is a challenge for all schools, and states/educational institutions are being creative in the way they are addressing this issue. We have filled most of our positions, with a few exceptions, and are excited with the new talent joining the GCS family.

One of the challenges for young single hires is finding somewhere to live. Our salaries are not adequate for the local rental rates. If you have an apartment attached to your house or in the basement and would be willing to rent it to one of our new employees at a reduced rate, please let us know.

We have increased our teacher compensation by almost 30% in the last five years, but it is still not enough. We will continue to keep this a priority to ensure we have gifted teachers who will partner with us to raise our children in the fear and admonition of the LORD. If you can help us, please let us know:

Thank you and God Bless.
