In your role, you will work in step with our instructional team to co-create our school-wide vision for our technology program (grades 9-12) and execute the curriculum to bring that vision to reality.

Above all, you will help us determine how we will fulfill the Rooted Promise. This might not work. It might not be fun. I hope you’ll do it anyway.

Our Look Fors:

  • We want teammates who thrive in a startup environment (mainly comfort with change and ambiguity, strong initiative)

  • We want teammates who have at least three years' teaching experience in upper-middle school and/or high school in a low-income or high needs population with a track record of outstanding academic results

  • We want teammates who are committed to earning the employer-validated credentials our students will learn (i.e. Adobe, Autodesk, Salesforce, CompTIA, HubSpot, Amazon Web Services, Scrum, and others)

  • We want teammates who have knowledge of and/or are committed to project-based learning in Technology

  • We want teammates who exhibit an exceptional ability to execute at a high level in the classroom while concurrently building secure attachments with students

  • We want teammates who are deeply invested in restorative practices and are masters of classroom management

  • We want teammates who have experience in school(s) which rely heavily on project-based learning as a means to develop content knowledge and skills (preferred)

  • We want teammates who have experience in school(s) which rely heavily on digital curriculum as a means to develop basic content knowledge and skills (preferred)

  • We want teammates who are committed to researching and remaining abreast of best instructional practices that may advance our mission

Areas of Responsibility Include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Creating, refining, + maintaining the Technology curriculum at Rooted School

  • Collaborating with other content area teachers to design cross-curricular projects and emphasize targeted soft skills across the curriculum

  • Meticulously monitoring student data, providing frequent feedback, and targeted student support in response to data

  • Consistently implementing and executing student interventions with flexible grouping

  • Execute Rooted’s hybrid academic model with fidelity and consistency

  • Actively establishing Rooted's culture among students, partners, and the community-at-large
