• Small caseloads, small travel requirements, lots of flexibility
• A very supportive Special Education director and administration
• The ability to do O&M lessons to the beach
• A wonderful office crew combined with our OI/Assistive Tech Teachers; our group keeps spirits high with fun extracurricular office get-togethers.
• Fun field trips- rock climbing, roller skating, trips on the O'Neill Sea Odyssey
• Access to the SCCOE Living Skills "Hub" for O&M and DLS lessons
• Great students and families!
More benefits include:
• A competitive benefits package
• The SCCOE has a partnership with Landed (landed.com) to help support employees in finding affordable housing within a reasonable commuting distance to our schools and offices.
