Fourth Grade Math and Science Teacher

Neighborhood House Charter School, a pre-K through Grade 8 public charter school in Dorchester, is looking for a 4th grade math/science teacher who will design and implement a rigorous and engaging standards-based curriculum that integrates content knowledge, 21st century skills, and social emotional learning. The successful applicant will teach in a full-inclusion, heterogeneously-grouped classroom where s/he can continually inform and evaluate teaching and learning through the use of data and can collaborate as a constructive and contributing member of a high-performing team. S/he will serve as a compassionate and caring role model and mentor for students and a support for their families. We expect you will have proven mastery of your subject, a proven ability to manage a classroom, and knowledge of the stages of child development.

We require the following from our teachers:

  • A passionate commitment to urban education;
  • Belief that every child can be successful, no matter what their background;
  • Belief that education and hard work are the keys to life success;
  • Belief in two messages, simultaneously, in balance: “We love you” and “We have the highest expectations of you – and you can and will meet them”;
  • Belief that the best learning happens through experiences that are both rich and structured;
  • Belief that problems are hurdles, not roadblocks, and that there is a solution if a student is willing to work harder, smarter, and more creatively;
  • Belief that teachers must learn and influence social emotional strengths of all children in and out of the classroom;
  • Desire to continually reflect and grow as an educator through professional development, peer feedback, and observation;
  • Belief in a school community where students, families, teachers and school leaders demonstrate accountability, flexibility, humor, effort, responsibility, respect and hope.
