Apply for this job

Position Overview: 

The role of the teacher is to empower students to own their learning.

  • Teachers at Summit 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. argumentative writing, 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.

In addition to serving as a mentor and teaching their course, our faculty understand the value of collaboration. They share best practices across the network, observe one another in the classroom, and work as a team to provide their students with high-quality education. Teachers have the opportunity to take on a variety of leadership roles within these collaborative structures at Summit. 

Eligibility:

  • Commitment to uphold Summit’s values and belief that all children deserve a rigorous, college-preparatory education
  • A California Teaching Credential (or a commitment to obtain one) - if you have any questions please review our credentialing FAQ document or contact us at talent@summitps.org
  • At least a Bachelor’s Degree (a Master’s Degree in Education is preferred but not required)
  • Must pass health and background check
  • Teaching experience in your subject preferred but not required

Key Qualities and Characteristics of a Summit Teacher:

  • Maintains high expectations for all students and believes all students can be successful in college
  • Facilitate learning experiences, using a variety of methods including: direct instruction, project-based learning, small group tasks, individual student projects, individual and group writing tasks, formative and summative assessment, direct teacher feedback, extended individual students tasks and public performance/presentation
  • Serve as a mentor to a group of students including weekly meetings with mentees in group and one-on-one settings
  • Collaborates with colleagues to maintain academic integrity of planned lessons and learning experiences for students
  • Design and implement social and emotional learning experiences as a recurring part of all courses
  • Actively participate and suggest proposals as a member of weekly faculty team meetings
  • Track and provide updates on student achievement to faculty, directors and families
