Job Description

Academies of Math and Science – 2016 Arizona Charter School of the Year
For Today’s Scholars – Tomorrow’s Global Visionaries

Are you dedicated to influencing positive changes in at-risk communities by preparing students for college and a successful life and career? As part of the AMS family, your role as a middle school ELA teacher is to guide our motivated students through an advanced curriculum alongside our talented team of educators. Our passion is serving low-income neighborhoods and providing a STEM-focused education in conjunction with music, foreign language, and sports programs.

As we grow by roughly 30% each year, we are seeking intelligent, data-driven teachers eager to uphold the same academic excellence that made our flagship school in Tucson the 2016 AZ Charter School of the Year. Our results and success support our belief that all students can succeed – no matter their background – with the right programs in place, and more importantly, the right people leading the way. That’s where you come in.

Our teachers answer these questions with an emphatic YES!
Are you fiercely dedicated to helping at-risk students forge their way to a college education?
Do you believe that there are no limits to how much you can improve in the art and science of teaching?
Do you believe that setting high expectations for students (academically and behaviorally) sets them up for success?
Do you believe in the importance of a balanced education with a STEM focus in addition to arts, humanities, and character development?

Qualifications & competencies:
A bachelor’s degree or higher
Prior experience working with children
Strong analytical abilities and a love for data-driven instruction
Dedication to going above & beyond for your students
Collaborative work style paired with the ability to take initiative
High standards for both yourself and your students
Charter school teachers ARE NOT required to be certified, but are required to be highly qualified in their grade level or subject

Why work for us?
Competitive salaries and bonus pay
Full benefits including medical, dental, vision, retirement (with employer contributions), PTO, and disability and life insurance
Supportive, collaborative culture with incredible coworkers and leaders
Comprehensive training, follow-up coaching, PD, and professional learning communities
Extensive opportunities for career mobility/advancement as our schools and network continue to grow and expand to new areas
The chance to truly make a difference in the lives of children who may not otherwise have access to a high-quality education
