I was convicted of domestic assault in Maine in 1995. I completed probation for it. Will it affect my chance for employment in a Michigan school?

Probably not unless your employer runs background checks or has a legal reason for asking about misdemeanor convictions or assaultive convictions. If you lie to the employer and they find out, that is reason to discharge you even if you have an employment contract. You should endeavor to be as honest as possible.
