8th Grade ELA Teacher

Alma del Mar Charter School | Full Time

Start Date: Sep 26, 2019

Alma del Mar is a K-8 charter school whose mission is to put every one of our scholars on the path to college and to challenge them to be service-minded leaders. We do this by immersing our scholars in a highly demanding, highly supportive environment where they receive a content–rich education.

Alma gets results for kids. After fewer than three years at Alma, our scholars outperform their district peers in reading ability and surpass their suburban peers in mathematics achievement. In addition, we’re known for being a highly inclusive school. Over 30% of scholars at Alma receive some additional academic or behavioral support and we have been nationally recognized for our effectiveness in serving this population.

The Middle School ELA Teacher Role

Lead teachers are the core of Alma’s crew. Our lead teachers work in teams to make sure that every scholar in their grade level achieves at high levels and develops the habits they will need to succeed. Lead teachers are auteurs, creative leaders who stop at nothing to ensure that their scholars’ learning experience is truly powerful.

As a Lead Teacher you will plan and teach highly effective lessons, work as part of a grade level and curricular team and develop high leverage relationships with Alma families. You’ll receive the support you need in all aspects of your work, while retaining the autonomy to do what’s right for the scholars with whom you work closely every day. While some successful lead teachers have chosen to remain in this role indefinitely, others have gone on after two or three years to take on curriculum, management, culture, operations or development roles at Alma or with like-minded organizations.

Who We’re Looking For

We seek outstanding teachers with the following qualifications:

  • Minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree
  • At least one year of full time teaching experience for Lead Teachers
  • Strong team orientation
  • Infectious joy
  • Bilingual preferred

What You Can Expect

  • Weekly professional development and $1,000 PD stipend
  • Weekly meetings with someone who supports you
  • Fully stocked supply closets for all your classroom needs and a $500 classroom budget
  • 2-3 prep periods per day
  • Monthly birthday breakfast and unlimited tea and coffee, for when you need a boost
