Alvin Mars will come to Long Island this week for a few days of shopping. He's looking for Jewish teachers. Mars is headmaster of the American Hebrew Academy, a "liberal preparatory school" in Greensboro, N.C., that will open in September 2001. The nondenominational boarding school hopes to have 800 students and 200 teachers. He will start a formal search next month, and already says "it's a struggle to find teachers": trained, competent teachers.
