Why Our Schools are Special


We have achieved academic success without burning out our teachers by meshing an effective education program with effective teacher supports and professional development.


If you want to work in a highly successful charter school that supports its teachers, serving a student mix that is among the most diverse in America while enjoying the cultural vibrance of Jersey City, Hoboken and New York City (just 2 miles away), then apply today online at


Required Certifications / Qualifications


Candidates MUST hold A New Jersey Department of Education CE, CEAS or Standard certificate in Music.


Candidates who meet the requirements to obtain such certification but do not yet have it in hand should apply for it immediately at because they cannot be hired by a traditional or charter public school in New Jersey for a position such as this without such certification.


Teacher Responsibilities


Values, Expectations, and Commitment  Teachers must commit themselves to the School’s values and mission. Moreover, appreciating the example of excellent schools which succeed at helping all students achieve at a high level, teachers must hold high expectations for each student and commit themselves to helping every student achieve their full potential.


Student Learning  Every teacher must accept ultimate responsibility for his or her students achieving learning progress that meets or exceeds the School's high standards and must actively develop solutions to problems, reaching out for peer and leader support, and taking advantage of other school resources, as necessary.


Teaching and Assessment  Teachers may make use of school-provided curricular materials, or they may design their own, but they must plan and deliver vibrant and engaging lessons – each with a measureable goal – within the framework of the School’s carefully sequenced, standards-aligned education program and they must administer school-provided formative assessments on a regular basis so instruction can be targeted to their students' needs. 


Culture and Classroom Management  Teachers must communicate, and also model for their students, behaviors which befit the high expectations culture and the caring school climate to which we are committed.  They must apply School and classroom rules consistently and effectively; make use of preventive discipline; and effectively supervise students both in their classroom and elsewhere on School grounds.


Teamwork, Professional Relations, and Professional Development Teachers should see themselves as members of a team and should commit themselves to their own and to their peers’ on-going professional development.  Teachers will be required to attend professional development sessions, to participate actively in planning meetings, and to become part of a professional learning community where they can lend assistance to, and gain assistance from, their grade-level peers.


Special Needs Students and English Language Learners  Teachers must work collaboratively with the school’s special education and ELL staff to implement the school’s special education and ELL programs and to comply with all state and federal regulations. 


Teacher Supports


Teachers are part of a school-wide team that includes many different professionals and they receive career-long coaching and professional development support from their Academy Dean and Dean of Students, their Grade Level or Department Head, and our Coordinator of Special Education.


Teachers work closely with their grade level peers, with whom they engage within professional learning communities (PLCs) assisting one another to solve problems.


Additional teacher supports include:

  • A research-based curriculum and supporting curricular materials;
  • High-quality formative assessments, aligned with our curriculum, that will help you immediately identify when students in your class have not achieved mastery of a skill, concept, or knowledge item;
  • Full-time reading and math specialists who will be available to tutor students who are struggling to master an essential skill, and social workers who will be available to help students struggling with outside problems;
  • The staffing of our afterschool program by Academic Tutors, so we can limit the length of our teachers’ work-days;
  • Abundant planning periods that provide teachers an opportunity to prepare up-coming lessons during the school day.

As equal opportunity employers, BelovED and Empowerment Academy hire without consideration to race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.

  • Welcome to BelovED Community Charter School!

    We are a high-performing charter school located in Jersey City, NJ -- an exciting, culturally vibrant city immediately across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. At many truly excellent schools, even the most committed teachers can feel burned out after a few years. At our schools, however, we endeavor to mesh the high expectations culture and successful classroom management practices of America’s top-performing charter school operators with a proven education program and with teacher supports that are designed to avoid teacher burnout, so educators can remain charged and enthusiastic throughout an entire career. If you are an experienced urban teacher with excellent classroom management skills, if you have a record of helping inner-city children beat the odds and achieve to their highest potential, if you love the sense of purpose and accomplishment one receives from this extremely meaningful work – but you also want an opportunity to spend time with your own children and to have a life outside of school – then we might be for you.
