Are you looking for the opportunity to lead change? Do you want to help reimagine what schools should be? We put students in the driver’s seat, empowering students with the skills and habits they need to be successful in college and life. We need diverse, driven, and dynamic teachers to join our growing team to help realize our educational vision.

The Summit Learning Environment:

Teaching at Summit is unlike teaching in a traditional environment. Our teachers know the individual strengths and growth areas for each student. We empower students to own their learning.

By design, our schools are small communities where every student is known. Our schools are intentionally heterogeneous and reflect the diverse demographics of the communities they are a part of. As a teacher, this will require being culturally responsive and creating equitable learning pathways for all students.

Summit teachers plan by deeply understanding student data and determining what group and individual supports are needed for their students to move forward on complex projects.

This planning requires teachers to consider not only how students are integrating content information into their projects but also how they are applying cognitive skills (e.g. hypothesizing) that stretch across all content areas and the habits of success (e.g. perseverance) that allow them to prepare for the world beyond the classroom.

Summit teachers do not see themselves as disseminators of knowledge but instead as facilitators and coaches to their students.

We are committed to continual growth at Summit. We prioritize developing leaders from within and have invested in multiple career pathway programs for our teachers and school leaders. With dedicated days of professional development built into the academic year, we equip teachers with the tools necessary to improve their practice and tackle challenging issues.

What you need:

  • Commitment to uphold Summit’s values, belief that all children deserve a rigorous and equitable education that prepares them for college and for life
  • Teaching Credential in California or another US State (or a commitment to obtain a credential by completing an educator preparation program within 2 years of starting at Summit)
  • Bachelor’s Degree (a Master’s Degree in Education is preferred but not required)
  • Clear health and background check
  • Teaching experience in your subject preferred but not required

We strive to recruit a diverse team. Summit Public Schools is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, military status, pregnancy, parenthood, citizenship status, creed, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law.

People from all diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Spanish language proficiency is a plus.
