High School Math Teacher

La Academia de Esperanza is currently seeking to fill their open High School Math Teacher position.

Job Overview

La Academia de Esperanza seeks a highly-qualified math or science teacher for this community based, ethnically and culturally sensitive educational environment. We use maker-centered and project-based learning to engage students who have not been successful in more traditional schools. If you join our team, you will teach classes in a collaborative and hands-on environment. You will have the opportunity to learn new tools and skills alongside the students that you teach. You will work as part of an interdisciplinary team to co-plan and co-teach Math/Science where both math and science standards are taught on a need-to-know basis as students construct artifacts in our makerspace.
We have an extensive makerspace that is equipped with a wide array of equipment including 3D printers, a laser cutter/engraver, CNC routers, a woodshop, an electronics studio, and a metalworking area. You don’t need to know how to work all of these tools -- we’ll teach you. You just need to be willing to learn how to use these tools and how to plan content instruction that is anchored in a maker-centered environment. In addition, this teacher will facilitate a frequent relationship oriented advisory/homeroom to support students with academic mentorship and personal development.
