OUR CULTURE & BENEFITS
How do we engage with new ideas & limitless possibility?
Our Learning Culture
At SMA we believe that learning is a lifelong pursuit. We foster a culture of on-going learning as part of our commitment to our team and believe all learners should have experiences and opportunities that allow them to reach their fullest potential as an educator and team member. We invest in specific learning opportunities such as technology workshops, employee-led courses, speaker series, cultural activities, IB training and further opportunities that allow for passion projects, campus-wide initiatives, and much more.
A school community is a dynamic, and busy environment that can, at times, require time to regroup or reset. Educators are provided planning and meeting time with their department during the school day. We also offer PTO, and holiday breaks.
We are committed to the overall well-being of our team. We provide health insurance, dental, and vision plans, life insurance and the Florida Retirement System retirement plan. On the health plans, we offer an HSA and FSA plans for accumulating funds pre-tax on a card to use for qualified medical expenses. We also offer optional Short and Long Term Disability, Accident, Hospital, and Critical Care (which includes Cancer Coverage) plans through payroll deduction, as well as an additional 403(b) retirement plan. Finally, we offer an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) which assists employees and their eligible dependents with personal or job-related concerns, including: Emotional well-being; Family and relationships; Legal and financial matters; Healthy lifestyles; and Work and life transitions, with unlimited telephone access to EAP professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
