We are looking for a smart, problem-solving, self-reflective, and passionate ASSOCIATE TEACHER who wants to be part of a dynamic team to help continue to BUILD a school and to SHAPE its future direction. Our associate teachers:

  • believe in building a positive school culture where respect, enthusiasm, effort, achievement, perseverance, community, and hard work are valued; and
  • believe that for every problem, there is a solution, and that if we can’t find the answer immediately, we simply work longer, harder, and smarter.
