St Joseph Institute for the Deaf is beginning the search for the next Executive Director of their Indianapolis based campus. The newly appointed Executive Director will begin the summer of 2021 when the current Director, Teri Ouellette, retires after serving in the role for 20 years.
The school focuses on providing the opportunity for young children with hearing loss to develop their auditory skills and learn spoken language as their major means of communication.
The Executive Director will work out of the Indianapolis campus overseeing the three major programs: Early Intervention, Preschool/Primary, and Mainstream support. St. Joseph Institute has played a key role in helping Indiana become a national leader in Deaf Education, and we seek a leader who can help us continue to build on that strong foundation.
The Search Committee seeks candidates who share the vision and the values of the school, and who demonstrate compassion, empathy, and inspiration in their leadership and in their experience. Further, a strong background in Listening and Spoken Language and the ability to lead a strong professional staff will be important in the search.
Required: A strong preference for Listening and Spoken Language Specialist Certification. The Director must have a minimum of a Master’s degree in Deaf Education or a related field and be certified in Deaf Education or hold an appropriate license. Must have a minimum of 7 years of experience in providing services to the deaf and hard of hearing in a listening and spoken language setting and be certified by the appropriate State and Professional Boards.
Internal Number: 1
