Here’s what you need to know
 
We need you to support our students and provide great education to our students
 
We’re looking for a dynamic arts teacher for the 2019-2020 school year! We’re continuing to expand as a network and need awesome teachers to help put our students on the path to college.

A bit more about you… you have experience teaching and you know what good arts education looks like for middle school.  You’re ready to work hard and have the passion and drive to work with students in order to put them on a path to college.

Here’s what you’ll be doing:
  • Design and implement a curriculum that includes materials explorations, age-appropriate representations, and frequent reflections 
  • Create assessments and assessment strategies that evaluate growth and habits of the mind as frequently as the final product 
  • Analyze student work samples and create next steps for individual artists and groups of artists 
  • Build and develop a culture of creativity (divergent thinking plus creativity-related traits) within the classroom, the school, the network and the community 

Must Haves (ie: what you need to rock at this role):
  • A minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.75
  • A minimum of two years teaching, preferably in an urban or low-income setting
  • A track record of success in the classroom, with data that you can explain
  • Expertise in arts education strategies.
  • Phenomenal classroom management skills.
  • A collaborative attitude towards teaching and learning
  • Desire to be part of a team of committed arts educators.
  • The ability to be flexible in a new school environment where things change all the time
