Employment & Volunteer Opportunties

Learning Coach/Teacher

We are currently looking for a high school science teacher able to facilitate project-based biology and chemistry classes. Full Time Position is open August 1st, 2020.

The platform we use includes ready made curricula, projects and plans.

Our staff has multiple roles. In addition to teaching and facilitating academic courses, as learning coaches, they must be flexible and open-minded. They help each student as an individual with unique needs. They guide the students with organization and study skills and to recognize when modifications and/or accommodations are necessary. They are part of the plan for implementing these changes. They communicate with other staff members, step outside the planned lessons when necessary, and use other tools to help students who need a different approach. They keep track of their assigned students’ progress in every way and communicate with parents on a regular basis.

We are a growing school with a unique and innovative educational model and are looking for candidates who are dedicated not only to education but to changing educational paradigms and helping our students create a long-term path and a personal vision for themselves. They also have to be willing to change and improve their methods through reflection and active research.
