HELP WANTED: Alma del Mar seeking to fill Lead Elementary Teacher position

Lead teachers are the core of Alma’s crew. Our lead teachers work in teams to make sure that every scholar in their grade level achieves at high levels and develops the habits they will need to succeed. Lead teachers are auteurs, creative leaders who stop at nothing to ensure that their scholars’ learning experience is truly powerful.

As a lead teacher you will plan and teach highly effective lessons, work as part of a grade level and curricular team and develop high leverage relationships with Alma families. You’ll receive the support you need in all aspects of your work, while retaining the autonomy to do what’s right for the scholars with whom you work closely every day.

While some successful lead teachers have chosen to remain in this role indefinitely, others have gone on after two or three years to take on curriculum, management, culture, operations or development roles at Alma or with like-minded organizations. At Alma we believe that we can best serve our scholars by helping you to meet your long-term professional growth and career needs.
