We are searching for teacher who have boundless energy and optimism and see opportunity in every challenge. As an experienced Middle School teacher (in one or more subject areas) you are both confident and nurturing in your teaching style, offering individualized attention and partnership to students, parents, and co-workers as they strive to contribute to and build the team.
