We're Looking for Innovative Teachers to Join Us!

Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay High School partners with East Bay families of limited means to provide their student a unique opportunity to receive a holistic education. Through a rigorous curriculum built around personalized learning, professional work experience, and Lasallian transformational education, Cristo Rey De La Salle students graduate prepared to thrive in college and compete in a rapidly evolving world.

Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay High School is seeking teachers of Math, Science, Humanities, Theology and Physical Education for its Lasallian Catholic, co-educational, secondary school to open in the summer of 2018 on the campus formerly home to Saint Elizabeth High School. The school is sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, District of San Francisco New Orleans.

The school will use the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) modeled after the successful programs at 32 Cristo Rey Network schools. All students are required to complete a personalized, college preparatory curriculum and participate in the Work Study Program. Under the Corporate Work Study Program, each student is employed five days per month by a local business or community agency to provide tuition assistance and complement the school’s on-site curricular program. The school is currently participating in the Replication Process of the Cristo Rey Network.

Anticipated Start Date

Teachers are expected to participate in Saturday sessions beginning in April to prepare for the summer program and academic school year. All teachers are expected to teach during the Alpha Summer Institute from July 5 through July 27. An estimate of ten (10) Professional Development days are also required prior to the start of the school year.

Teaching at Cristo Rey De La Salle East Bay is UNLIKE teaching in a traditional environment. Our teachers know the individual strengths and areas for growth of each of our students

  • Every teacher serves as a mentor to a group of approximately twenty students who they will coach, counsel through the college process and advocate for through their academic career. Mentors meet weekly with their mentees to reflect on the week and discuss their academic and personal goals and plans for the coming week. Mentors push students to become self-directed learners who can set and achieve goals and seek new challenges.
  • The role of the teacher is to empower students to be agents of their learning

  • 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. argumentative writing, hypothesizing) that stretch across all content areas and the habits of success (e.g. grit, growth mindset and perseverance) that allow them to prepare for the world beyond the classroom.
