Description
Join us in creating a model urban school district that serves all students with excellence. Together, we can make a lasting impact.
 
This role is eligible for a $5,000 bonus as well as up to $5,000 for relocation expenses!
 
New-to-Mastery Teachers can expect a starting annual salary of between $55,000-$101,500 based on years’ experience and level of education.
 
The Opportunity:
 
In joining Mastery as an English Teacher you will work with your students to foster their development in critical thinking, questioning, critiquing, and understanding the written word. It is well-documented that the opportunity gap in the United States is a literacy gap and by taking on the mantle of an English Teacher you will work daily to set our students up for long-term success and ensure they get a world-class education.
 
 As an English Language Arts teacher we know you love reading and writing intrinsically and have unwavering belief in holding the bar high for all readers. Ideally, you have familiarity with balanced literacy instruction and you are eager to teach the building blocks of strong reading and writing practices.  You and your students engage with robust core curriculum that supports the science of reading, with time spent on rigorous reading and writing aligned to grade level standards. Additionally, teachers should be prepared to lead intervention courses to support unfinished learning to ensure students have all of the skills they need to meet grade level and ultimately graduation requirements to set them up for post-secondary success.
 
 At Mastery we value Continuous Improvement and want you to learn and grow in your craft.  We utilize a team of Assistant Principals, central-office coaches, and school-based content teams to provide every teacher coaching and feedback. We have professional development or peer collaboration time built into our staff calendar.

    • Commit to ongoing professional development in the spirit of continuous improvement
    • Develop and implement rigorous and appropriate lesson plans, assignments, and assessments in cooperation with Mastery school-based leadership and curricular resources developed by Mastery’s Central Office Academic Team
    • Work closely with school leaders to analyze student assessment data to measure progress and use data to inform instruction
    • Collaborate in grade level teams to discuss student work, share best practices, plan events for joy and humor, and ensure student mastery of standards
    • Engage families in their children’s education by building relationships and maintaining regular communication
    • Demonstrate genuine interest, belief, and care for students’ personal and academic success
    • Commit to professional growth, self-reflection, a receptiveness to feedback, and a desire to continuously improve

Education, Experience, and Skills:

    • Bachelor’s degree required with a record of personal, professional, and/or academic achievement
    • Teacher certification - completed or in process
    • Demonstrated expertise in subject area
    • Commitment to and experience working with underserved communities
    • Determination to drive student achievement and set high expectations for all students
    • The ability to motivate, support, and challenge students in a student-centered, standards-driven classroom community
