Last year, Success Academy opened 10 new schools, and next year we are on track to open eight more. That means we have a steady need to hire great teachers — as well as strong employees throughout the organization. Making good hiring decisions is key to any organization, but when a child’s educational well-being and future are at stake, that decision takes on more significance. Over the last nine years of opening and staffing 34 schools, I’ve learned to become quite efficient in how I hire.
