Job Description:

**2 Positions Available in Springfield** Job Title: Science Teacher Philosophy Phoenix Charter Academy's mission is to challenge young people in our area with an academically rigorous and individually tailored curriculum. Phoenix scholars will have the support, resources and training needed to succeed academically in high school and college, and become economically secure in their future. Phoenix Charter Academy is named after a mythological figure of strength, healing and renewal. Phoenix schools challenge resilient, disconnected young people with rigorous academics and relentless supports, so they take ownership of their futures and succeed in high school, college, and as self-sufficient adults. Role Summary: Phoenix teachers do more than simply teach academic lessons; they serve integral roles as advisers and mentors for scholars. Phoenix teachers are responsible for preparing and delivering rigorous, high-quality instruction in their assigned content areas. They provide relentless support to benefit the socio-emotional needs of scholars, modeling and promoting the Phoenix mission by maintaining high expectations for scholars throughout their academic careers and performing additional duties - as necessary - in the fight for equity for the scholars and communities they serve. Commitments All staff acknowledge that we each seek - through formal and informal feedback - to dramatically improve our own progress and that of our scholars. Qualities of a Phoenix staff member:

  • Unwavering Belief in Phoenix Scholars - Phoenix staff operate with the deeply held belief that all young people want to and can succeed even in the face of what can seem like insurmountable barriers and societal constraints.
    • Ability to Put Scholars First - Phoenix staff go above and beyond to ensure mastery of the skills and development of positive self-identity that will ensure success for college, careers and beyond. Phoenix staff find every opportunity to engage in teaching and learning with scholars, using conflict to build supportive relationships with scholars and never taking things personally.
      • Eager to Learn Under Pressure - Phoenix staff must be able to learn as they go in a fast paced, ever evolving, urgent environment. They have the desire to receive direct feedback and the ability to implement the feedback into practice quickly.
        • Humility - Phoenix staff approach problem solving with curiosity and desire to understand the perspectives of others. They carry an internalized sense of "I can always learn more" from others, and know that adults at Phoenix must model the qualities of being open-minded and willing to make mistakes and learn from them.
          • Experience with Low Income Communities - Staff have the proven ability to work across cultures and experience serving low-income communities and/or academically-disconnected adolescents.
            • Ability to Find Inspiration In the Small Things - In the face of challenge and hard work, Phoenix staff must have the ability to find humor, inspiration, success and joy in the day to day interactions with scholars and the larger Phoenix Community.
              • Personal Commitment to Cultural Proficiency and Ongoing Development - Phoenix staff are ongoing learners about diversity, equity and inclusion and seek to understand the ways that their self-identity and experiences impacts and interacts with their daily work, colleagues and scholars.
