In order to fill these open spots in studies, Studies Department Chairs Austin Reed and Bree Anderson worked with administration to interview potential candidates.
“You want to take [hiring] very seriously,” Reed said. “We work to review resumes and call references because getting great teachers is something we want to get right.”
Especially in a department as large as studies, collaboration is a critical aspect when looking for new teachers.
“Our department is really founded on those ideas,” Anderson said. “So, we try to make a lot of our questions about how people feel about the collaborative-like setting.”
