The ideal teaching candidate would have the following five attributes:
Reflects the diversity of the student population in the Greater Lawrence community. We are committed to working with local colleges to identify diverse candidates with the potential of serving as exemplary teachers.
Experience in project-based learning. We prefer highly qualified individuals who have experience in project-based learning and/or have worked in school networks committed to project-based learning (such as Big Picture Learning, Expeditionary Learning, High Tech High).
Strong content knowledge and willingness to be a generalist. Our academic program connects students and staff to how professionals use math, English, social studies, science, and art in the real world. Having strong content knowledge is a critical prerequisite for a prospective teaching candidate. An equally critical quality is a teacher’s willingness to be a generalist because they will be asked to support students outside their specific content domains (i.e. Sheltered Content Instruction, Reader and Writer’s Workshop, and UDL) and to connect student learning to other content areas.
Passion for urban education and social change. Prospective candidates would need to demonstrate that they are invested in changing inequitable systems and providing the kind of support to urban students that will empower them to complete higher education, be economically viable, and serve as change agents in their communities.
A deep value for the power of collaboration. We are interested in highly qualified teachers who are invested in breaking classroom silos that typically occur when teachers are not collaborating. The ideal candidate is a team player who values the power of collaboration and believes that collaboration is the key strategy in creating a school culture committed to innovation and high performance.
