Energized by invested teachers?  Tired of bureaucracy?  Looking for freedom to push education in new innovative ways? 

If you answered YES to these questions, we would love to talk with you about our IES Executive Director position. This role in one word is the pacesetter for our organization.  You may be thinking “what is a pacesetter?”  A pacesetter is “a person, group or organization that is the most progressive or successful and serves as a model to be imitated.”  This is a perfect description of the role we have available to lead Innovative Education Services (IES).  The main focus areas of this position are growing schools, fostering innovation, and championing global initiatives.
