I.M. TERRELL ACADEMY TO HOST OPEN HOUSE DECEMBER 14
The I.M. Terrell Academy for STEM and VPA is welcoming secondary educators to an open house from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, December 14 at the Van Cliburn Recital Hall (part of the Maddox-Muse Complex), 330 E. 4th Street in Fort Worth.
The open house comes ahead of the Fort Worth Independent School District posting approximately 20 job openings for the new campus.
Superintendent Kent P. Scribner will give opening remarks at the event and reiterate the District’s excitement about the opening of the new school.
The event agenda includes a campus overview, including history about the facility, campus expectations and the school’s next steps. Educators with STEM and VPA-related content departments will answer questions for prospective teaching candidates.
Individuals with an extensive background and real-world experience in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, visual and performing arts are encouraged to attend.
Principal Baldwin Brown said he needs prospective educators who think and color outside the box and who will be 110 percent committed to the work.
“We’re looking for people who can step in and step up and really help develop the vision and the mission for the campus,” Mr. Brown said. “The outcome is to have teachers walking away first and foremost feeling excited about working at I.M. Terrell but also having clarity about what is expected if they’re wanting to work for I.M. Terrell.”
I.M. Terrell Academy opens for its inaugural year to high school freshmen in fall 2018 and will add grade levels every year. At capacity, the campus will serve approximately 800 students. For more I.M. Terrell Academy details, email Mr. Brown at Baldwin.firstname.lastname@example.org.
