Maureen Joy is seeking a 8th Grade Math 1 teacher for the 2022-23 school year.

Planning thoughtfully and teaching joyously:

You'll execute our rigorous, standards-based curriculum to meet the particular needs of your students, thinking about both how to scaffold rigorous learning and how to infuse your students' learning with joy. You will submit plans weekly for feedback from your IC and implement that feedback to ensure plans are appropriately rigorous and infused with joy.

Using data intentionally:

You are constantly thinking about how to help students achieve ambitious goals. To track progress towards goals, you will use the data analysis cycle daily during class, weekly, and on the unit level. You will track, analyze, and use classroom data to refine lessons and systems.

Investing in your own learning:

You are committed to your own professional development through collaboration, reflection, and receiving and incorporating feedback from your team lead, Instructional Coach, students, and staff. We support our teachers' ongoing professional growth through professional development opportunities, as well as regular observations and feedback conversations.

Building a strong culture in your classroom:

We know that building a positive, engaging, and supportive environment for students is an essential part of their learning and development. You'll set clear academic and behavior expectations for students in order to create a positive environment and maximize learning. Teachers execute Middle School wide systems and routines to create aligned culture in their classrooms.

Meeting professional expectations:

You are intentional about staying organized so you can work efficiently on teams, be prepared for teaching every day, and meet deadlines. You are committed to being an effective teacher, communicator, and problem-solver.


Every teacher at Maureen Joy, regardless of prior teaching experience, receives an instructional coach who has demonstrated a track record of excellence in the classroom. Your coach observes and meets with you regularly as a part of the school's observation/feedback cycle. Coaches also facilitate data meetings to help adjust your future instruction so you can best meet your students' academic needs the next day or week. You are expected to work with your coach and use feedback to improve your practice and the outcomes of your scholars. Our overall coaching model focuses on improvement over evaluation and we take joy in seeing both our scholars AND teachers grow throughout the year.

Maureen Joy Charter School is an equal opportunity employer. We hire without consideration of race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status or disability. We strongly encourage diverse candidates to apply.
