We typically sponsor one trainee a year, at varying age levels. We ask that our trainee commit to Forest Bluff School for at least three years. When we don’t have a classroom available, our trainee works as a support staff director for a year while waiting for an opening, or we offer training at a second level. (Most of our teachers have AMI training at 2-3 age levels). Please contact Lynn Jessen for more specific sponsorship details.
