Application Process

Thank you for your interest in employment with Nature's Classroom! Below you will find PDF versions of the application materials you will need to apply. Application materials can be submitted by mail, fax (256-634-3601), or scanned and e-mailed. If you would like to schedule a preliminary phone conversion to discuss the program and position prior to delving into the application process, we are happy to do so.

  • Application Form – Print and complete the Application and submit it and the Background Check Form together. If you have a prepared resume, submit it with the Application and write “see resume” on the parts of the application that are redundant with the information of your resume (education, work history, etc.).
  • Background Check Form – Print and complete the form and return it and the Application together. All applicants must undergo a background check prior to work at Nature’s Classroom.
  • Reference Questionnaire – Print four copies of this form and complete the section on each that is titled ‘Job Applicant's Release to Prospective Employer to Request Information about the Applicant’. Send one to each of the references that you list on the Application and one alternate reference. We cannot complete the hiring process until three Reference Questionnaires have been received, so all applicants should send forms to four references to avoid delay. NOTE: Including a pre-addressed and stamped envelope makes it easy for your references to mail the completed form to us as quickly as possible.

After receiving and reviewing your application we will contact you to begin the interview process. Whenever possible, we prefer to conduct in person interviews at our facility. We feel that meeting people face to face is always the best way to get to know them and it also allows applicants a chance to tour staff housing and the rest of the facility. However, we do conduct phone interviews in instances when distance makes visiting our facility impractical.

Thank you again for your interest in employment with Nature’s Classroom. If you have any questions about the application materials or process, or would like an application packet mailed to you, please feel free to call or e-mail at any time.
