Mott Haven Middle School for Social Leadership is a public charter school in the Bronx focused on the needs of children in the child welfare system. Since our founding in 2008, our goal has been to permanently remove the barriers students face by providing comprehensive support services in academic settings. We use leading social-emotional learning curriculum to help vulnerable children - many of who are survivors of trauma, abuse, or neglect- regulate their emotions and do their best learning.
As our school is expanding in size and adding grades, we are seeking Middle School Teachers who are dedicated to progressive teaching practices and providing high quality educational opportunities to underserved communities.
Our outstanding educators are provided with unmatched opportunities for rewarding professional growth, are committed to using data to improve student results, possess exceptional professionalism, and embrace our school’s belief that all students, regardless of economic status or family structure, are entitled to learn in a system that gives them the best chance for success.
We are looking for a candidate who:
Innovates with curriculum and pedagogy – We seek to support scholars in taking ownership of their learning. All staff actively participate in designing and facilitating highly engaging, rigorous learning experiences with resources and scaffolds that allow scholars to lead their own learning.
Practices social justice – Design, facilitate and participate in experiences and conversations that relate to race, gender, class and sexual identity in ways that empower scholars and foster community.
Leads through uncertainty – In order to achieve dramatically better outcomes for young people, sometimes there is no precedent for the strategies we employ. We need staff that can demonstrate leadership and try new approaches to achieve breakthrough results. All staff contribute to, and learn from, these experiences.
