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
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.
