Public education CAN look different! NOW FILLING AN UNEXPECTED MID-YEAR VACANCY FOR THE CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR (2017-18). Creative City Public Charter School seeks an energetic, passionate elementary educator who is ready to focus on the unique needs and passions of each student in an innovative, arts-rich, hands-on instructional environment. A second grade teacher has unexpectedly left our school and we are seeking an MSDE-certified teacher to fill the vacancy immediately.

A teacher joining a school mid year is joining a fast-moving train and needs to know what they're getting in to, so here goes:

  • Class size is 22
  • Students have recess every day and get their hands dirty.
  • Classrooms have the active hum of excited learning.
  • We welcome flexible seating, comfy classroom nooks, and other creative strategies that make the environment most comfortable for learning.
  • We use Responsive Classroom as our core framework for building and maintaining classroom community. We do not use PBIS.
  • Curricula include: Fountas & Pinnell, Lucy Calkins, Words Their Way, Singapore Math.
  • Strategies/frameworks include: Place-based, project-based, arts-integrated, inclusion, and plenty of small group work.
  • We are a Title I school

The right candidate will be familiar with each of these, although we are ready to train and our new hire will have the support of a great teaching team. Most importantly, the right candidate will be able to hit the ground running in the existing classroom community. We practice "looping" where the same teacher will have a class for two consecutive years. A mid-year hire this year will most likely stay with the same students next year as well in the third grade.

We prioritize a team environment that values all voices, we use a collaborative approach. As a Community School we are deeply connected the the community around us, while also enrolling students from city wide through a lottery system.

Must meet all employment requirements of Baltimore City Public Schools including valid Maryland teaching certification. Please apply ASAP! Our students want to meet you.
