We are looking for teachers dedicated to bringing an excellent education to every classroom in our region. Beyond the professional fulfillment you’ll find in improving educational outcomes for high-needs students, our teachers enjoy living in an affordable, culturally-rich community surrounded by the natural beauty of the Pioneer Valley.
Higher Education Hotbed
Western Massachusetts is home to more than a dozen institutions of higher education including Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, Westfield State University, Hampshire College, Amherst College, and UMass Amherst among many others.
Activities for Every Occasion
The Pioneer Valley has an arts, culture, and music scene to satisfy every taste. Between the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, the Clark Art Institute, the Springfield Symphony Orchestra, and world-class venues such as Tanglewood Music Center and the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, there will never be a lack of opportunities to expand your artistic and cultural horizon. Life in the Pioneer Valley is also an outdoor enthusiast's dream—home to a range of activities including hiking, skiing, and whitewater rafting. But, in case you run out of things to do in Pioneer Valley, Boston is less than two hours away and New York City is under three hours away.
For Foodies, Coffee Lovers, and Craft Brewers
After you’ve expanded your artistic and cultural horizons, it will be time to experience the myriad food and drink options that Pioneer Valley has to offer. For foodies, it’s been said that Farm-to-Table movement started here. Craft Beer enthusiast? Pioneer Valley has its own ‘beer trail’ with over 25 craft breweries for you to explore. Coffee connoisseurs will find hidden gems around every corner (even some with their own craft doughnuts, of course).
Family Friendly and Affordable
Springfield is the fourth largest city in New England, yet boasts a cost of living nearly 50 percent less than its nearby metropolitan competitors. The cost of a single-family home in the area is below the national average, making it particularly attractive to young professionals and families.
