Description

SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER
2019-2020 

This role is eligible for up to $7,000 in bonuses and up to $5,000 in relocation costs!

Position Summary:

At Mastery, all means all.  Nearly one quarter of our students have individualized education plans (IEPs) to help ensure they get the educational opportunities they need. As an Elementary Special Education Teacher you will work with a team of teachers, case managers, school leaders, and central office support staff to help push the boundaries of what’s possible for your students academically, emotionally, and physically while also developing your craft. Along with managing student IEPs you will deliver research-based interventions and monitor progress across a series of systems we’ve designed and tailored to deliver the best outcomes for students and accelerate your own professional growth. At Mastery, we have a robust response to intervention program and we are excited for you to bring your enthusiasm, skills, and experiences to the team.

Across the Mastery network our Specialized Services Programming spans from an itinerant to supplemental level of support.  Our preference is for our students with IEPs to spend the minimum amount of time in self-contained classrooms and our school-based and central office-based Specialized Services Team members help our Special Education Teachers and Classroom Assistants build a comprehensive level of support.  We strive to maximize our teacher-to-student ratio in our Special Education programs and have multiple classrooms across our network specifically tailored for students who are English Language Learners, students with Autism Support needs, students with Emotional Support needs, students with Multiple Disability needs, and students with Life Skills needs. At Mastery we value Continuous Improvement and want to ensure you learn and grow in your craft so we have professional development or peer collaboration time built into our calendar every Wednesday.

For the quick synopsis: Mastery Charter Schools is a non-profit network of 25 schools serving more than 13,500 students in Philadelphia and Camden.   Sixteen of our schools are turnarounds of previously struggling district neighborhood schools and charter schools.  Mastery is the largest turnaround school operator in the nation and has been lauded by President Obama and the US Department of Education for our ability to dramatically boost academic achievement in historically low-performing schools.  

We are organized around a common vision: “Mastery schools are joyful, authentic communities where students learn how to think critically and act independently so they are truly prepared for post-secondary success.”  Mastery’s work is rooted in an unwavering belief that their students can achieve at the highest levels.  To fulfill this vision, we recognize that we must attend to the whole child –personal as well as academic skills matter and schools must match high expectations for students with high levels of support.
