Caring Teachers Are Our Foundation

When you support student-patients, you want to be sure that they receive the best care they can receive. A key part of this is making sure that the people providing the care and service are focused, flexible, and—most importantly—caring. So, what are the qualities of an education inc. teacher? They—like everyone here—are passionate, intelligent, and focused on our student-patients’ successful transition back to school. They understand that our students may be going through a very challenging stage of their life, and they see the chance to play a vital role in helping each child through it. Finally, our teachers are the best of the best, having been carefully vetted through our Topgrading process to be sure that they meet our strict “A Player” requirements.

A Few Profiles of Our Incredible Teachers

Andrew

Team Leader

Andrew is a Team Leader at one of our Community-based Acute Treatment (CBAT) programs. He works daily with students who are coping with anxiety and depression. When asked if there was anything about his job that surprised him, he responded “I was surprised by the amount of comradery within the organization. Originally, I had only thought of teaching positions as independent work, but ei is incredibly team-focused. A challenge with a student or with administrative work is never seen as just one person’s burden but rather an obstacle we work through as a team.”

Angela

Teacher

Angela is a Teacher at one of our Hospital programs. She came to ei two years ago with experience teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Quote: “There are so many things that I love about working for education inc. in the hospital setting. I can truly say that I have finally found my dream job. I enjoy teaching students in a non-traditional way. I love that I can be creative with my lesson plans and make learning fun for my students. I enjoy collaborating with hospital staff about the needs of my students and how to best help them. Most of all, I love letting my students know that I care”

Gloria

Adolescent Teacher

Gloria is an Adolescent Teacher at one of our Behavioral Hospitals. Although she is passionate about teaching, Gloria has grown to appreciate collaborating with parents and school districts, as well: “I have come to realize the importance and meaning behind the phone calls and emails we send each day. We are building a support network for the student… I love working with school counselors and seeing the support network that students have both in and out of placement. Students frequently come in with a lot of concerns about missing work, but when I communicate to them that we do everything in our power to keep them up to date, it gives them the opportunity to focus on their treatment.”

Matt

Lead Teacher

Matt is a Lead Teacher in our Mid-Atlantic region. When asked about the challenges of the job, Matt said “I think a challenge is adapting to all of the different age groups that I can see in one classroom at a time… It can be difficult, but it also creates a unique environment you will never experience in any standard school setting.” In regards to working at ei, Matt adds, “I would have to say that the number one thing that brings me back every morning is the staff that surrounds me… the environment has stayed that of a second family…the connections that I have made in my time here at ei are ones that will stay with me long into the future.”

Victoria

Teacher

Victoria is a Teacher at one of our Pediatric Behavioral Health partners. She loves working with her students, and notes that “Many of my students dislike school initially because of their past experiences, however, I enjoy the challenge of ensuring that they love school by the time they leave our hospital.” She works hard at it every day, and has learned a lot about herself in the process, noting “I never knew how much energy I had in me until I taught on a pediatric behavioral health unit!”

"The ei teachers are a vital part of the multidisciplinary treatment team, providing information of their direct observations of youth during class time that impact the treatment planning process."
