Job Description

JOB CODE:              Exempt
JOB TITLE:              K1-7 Physical Education Teacher
 Neighborhood House Charter School was founded over 20 years ago with a mandate to both provide a better education for Boston’s low-income families and to incubate the best in teaching and learning practices. Serving over 600 children from Dorchester and surrounding neighborhoods, we have become one of the most sought-after public schools in the City. The 70 percent low-income, 80 percent minority families we serve truly reflect the diversity of Boston. In keeping with our commitment to provide a better education option for Boston children, we opened a Neighborhood House Charter School High School in the fall of 2017. We are uniquely positioned to understand the challenges facing Boston students as they move into high school, and we are both honored and excited to be able to offer a high school that will address these challenges and give families a new, distinctive option.
We are seeking a dynamic, caring and passionate teacher with a minimum of two years teaching experience, ideally in an urban district, with high energy level and the ability to develop effective, standards-based physical education lessons that support student learning and achievement of school academic objectives and benchmarks.

  • Other roles and responsibilities as they become necessary
  • A passionate commitment to urban education and the belief that education and hard work are the keys to life success
  • An entrepreneurial spirit in creating a new vision for urban high school students and the commitment to see it through
  • Belief that every child can be successful
  • Belief in two messages, simultaneously, in balance: “We love you” and “We have the highest expectations of you – and you can and will meet them”
  • Belief that the best learning happens through experiences that are both rich and structured
  • Belief that problems are hurdles, not roadblocks, and that there is a solution if a student is willing to work harder, smarter, and more creatively
  • Belief that teachers must learn and influence social emotional strengths of all children in and out of the classroom
  • Desire to continually reflect and grow as an educator through professional development, peer feedback, and observation
  • Belief in a school community where students, families, teachers and school leaders demonstrate accountability, flexibility, humor, effort, responsibility, respect and hope
