KIPP New Jersey is looking for an elementary art teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. We have an immediate opening for an elementary art teacher at THRIVE Academy, our network’s second elementary school.

Responsibilities

Being part of our team gives you lots of opportunities to grow, but with great power also comes great responsibility. Here are some of them:

  • Perform daily teaching tasks like teaching, grading, monitoring lunch, and any of the other things that make you awesome at your job.
  • Be a good TEAMmate – work closely with other school staff to create and reinforce a firm foundation for all classes.
  • Create an art curriculum for our incredible elementary schoolers (it’s more than just coloring in the lines!)
  • Help with diagnostic and progress monitoring testing across the school
  • Update student performance trackers and use data to help guide you plans
  • Communicate consistently with families about student progress

Must Haves

  • A desire to have fun everyday
  • A minimum of two years teaching, preferably in an urban or low-income setting
  • A track record of success and planning in the classroom, with data that you can explain
  • Artistic ability (using the app DrawSomething won’t cut it!)
  • A collaborative attitude towards teaching and learning
  • The ability to be flexible in a growing school environment where things change all the time

Compensation

In addition to a competitive salary, KIPP New Jersey offers a full benefits plan, a subsidized wireless plan through Verizon, a school laptop as well as travel benefits for TEAMmates coming from the New York City area.
