Youngsville Academy seeks teachers who exhibit the following traits:

• Have High Expectations - They help their students see that they are capable, both academically and formationally. Always encourage the students towards higher levels of success, even higher than the teacher may believe is possible. “We tend to get what we expect.” – Norman Vincent Peale
• Are Positive and Smile - They believe in themselves; they believe in others. This belief shows in their demeanor and their positive words. “Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will” – Zig Ziglar
• Are Prepared to show and tell - They look for ways to bring examples into the classroom. They are prepared with ways to help students learn from different angles to ensure mastery of lessons. “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin
• Are Enthusiastic about their subject matter - They show eagerness, joy, and energetic pace when approaching their topics. “Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
• Are Kind and Respectful - They have empathy for their students, who could be going through difficult times personally. They earn their students’ respect, and don’t have to demand it. “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop
• Are Patient - They bear misfortune, difficulty, and annoyances without complaining, losing temper, or showing irritation. “To bear with patience wrongs done to oneself is a mark of perfection, but to bear patience the wrongs done to someone else is a mark of imperfection.” Thomas Aquinas
• Are Striving for Continuous Improvement - They are always looking for ways to improve, to become better and more effective teachers. “If you’re not going forward, you’re going backward”
• Are Professionals who strive to do their best - They strive to exhibit professionalism and do their best in all things, including in their appearance, preparation, conduct, and in all forms of communication. “When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.” - Helen Keller
