Are you what our community has been looking for?
We won't sugar coat it -- teaching is tough. It often doesn't pay enough. It takes a lot of patience, resilience, a growth-mindset, and a whatever-it-takes attitude.
But it's also one of THE MOST rewarding and empowering jobs on the planet. To have the privilege to work with some of the most incredibly gifted, diverse, and education-hungry scholars in our country is truly an honor we try not to take for granted. We fully recognize that the secret ingredient to a successful classroom AND school is a learning-oriented teacher, which is why we're always looking for new faces to join and better our professional family. So do you have what it takes?
We are looking for someone who:
loves kids, and can demonstrate love in having high expectations for all children in and outside the classroom.
is eager to serve youth in East Oakland, meeting them where they are with a vision for where they need to be.
possesses self-grit, or the resiliency to problem solve and adapt to overcome challenges.
is culturally competent, reflecting continuously on implicit biases and areas of priviledge.
enjoys collaborating with others, and is open to inquiry and feedback.
