High School Math Teacher (2019-20 school year)

Green Dot Schools

Green Dot Public Schools is transforming multiple secondary schools within Memphis. Following the opening of our first four Memphis campuses, Fairley High, Hillcrest High, Kirby Middle and Wooddale Middle Schools, we opened an independent charter school, Bluff City High School, which will continue to grow until graduating a senior class in 2020-21. We are looking for people with a strong sense of purpose and an unwavering commitment to each and every student and their potential for success. Our rapidly growing network of over 1000 employees in Memphis, Washington state, and Los Angeles are on a mission to consistently approach every student not in the terms of where they are today, but in terms of what is possible. We are continuously working to intensify unconventional approaches to teaching by equipping our teachers and leaders with a variety of skills, support and professional development. 

We are seeking talented Math teachers for our students. Our staff is committed to continuing their own learning and refining their practice to stay current in the field ensuring a quality education for all. We offer intensive, specialized professional development days, monthly observations, summer training, new teacher support meetings, and opportunities for teachers to share and strengthen their skills.
