American Heritage Schools, the top-ranked PK3 through 12 college preparatory school, invites educators from throughout the country to its virtual “Continuing Education Webinar and Job Fair” on Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. EST. From the convenience of their homes, attendees will learn about job opportunities and the benefits of teaching at American Heritage Schools’ Broward Campus and Palm Beach Campus.
Viewers will hear directly from the American Heritage Schools President, Dr. Douglas Laurie, about how the Schools’ mentoring program supports educators in their professional growth. They will also earn 1.5 hours of continuing education credit offered by the Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF) by attending a keynote address given by nationally recognized teacher A.J. Juliani, founder of Adaptable Learning, on the importance of adaptability in the classroom.
Educating students is hard work. It was before the pandemic, and it has continued to challenge all teachers, coaches, administrators and parents. Going from in-person teaching to remote learning and then to a hybrid approach, educators have seen the need for flexible curriculum and instruction. Juliani’s Keynote builds on the best of what educators have done for years: adapt their instruction to meet the needs of their students.
Juliani serves as faculty for the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education (PLN) and is the former Director of Learning and Innovation for Centennial School District. As a curriculum coordinator, tech director, English teacher, football coach, and K-12 instructional coach, he has worked towards innovative learning experiences for schools in various roles. Juliani is also an award-winning blogger, speaker, and author of multiple books, including the best-sellers Adaptable, Empower, and Launch.
American Heritage Schools is one of the top four largest private schools in the nation and among the top 20 largest employers in South Florida. It is headed by educators rather than a board of directors and maintains subsidiary departments in-house, such as admissions, human Resources, curriculum development and PR/marketing. The Schools also offer free tuition for employees’ children and salary supplementation for additional roles, including tutoring during the year and teaching at the Summer Institute over the summer.
