Our mission is to help people become more productive workers, family members and community citizens. We provide supportive, affordable and effective educational programs, including: adult basic education, job training and career counseling, education and training for at-risk youth, and child care services.

Second Start Alternative High School is seeking an engaging life and social-emotional skills instructor with strong relational skills for the 2021-22 school year.  Our ideal candidate will use their patience, life knowledge, and humor to connect with and motivate our students within our innovative small-group Choices program.  Our small school benefits from strong local support, offers low student to teacher ratios ( 5 - 7 students to 1 teacher/ class), has in-house transportation available for student activities, and offers high levels of social-emotional support and life skills programming outside of the academic classroom to help support our students’ needs beyond school.  We seek teachers who are willing to work hard to find ways to help our students experience success, produce quality work, and develop the skills they’ll need to be successful adults after high school.  We have great connections with our students and those relationships produce the type of outcomes that make all our efforts worthwhile!


Second Start offers a competitive salary structure, ample staff development opportunities, and a caring and supportive administrative team.  We are that supportive school where talented educators become the caring, effective teacher they imagined they could be!
