**2018-2019 Positions Available in Lawrence, Chelsea, and Springfield**

 

Philosophy

Phoenix Charter Academy's mission is to challenge teenagers in our area with an academically rigorous and individually tailored curriculum. Talented students who have not succeeded in other schools will have the support, resources and training needed at PCA to succeed academically in high school and college, and become economically secure in their future. Phoenix Charter Academy is named after a mythological figure of strength, healing and renewal.

Phoenix schools challenge resilient, disconnected students with rigorous academics and relentless supports, so they take ownership of their futures and succeed in high school, college, and as self-sufficient adults.

 

Role Summary

 

Phoenix teachers do more than simply teach academic lessons; they serve integral roles as advisers and mentors for scholars as they move through their secondary school experience at Phoenix toward postsecondary success in college and beyond.

 

Phoenix teachers are responsible for preparing and delivering rigorous, high-quality instruction in their assigned content areas, providing relentless support for efforts to benefit the socio-emotional needs of scholars, modeling and promoting the Phoenix mission by maintaining high expectations for scholars throughout their academic careers, and performing additional duties - as necessary - in the fight for equity for the scholars and communities they serve.

 

Commitments

 

It is a given that all of the faculty work very, very hard. All staff acknowledge that we will do more than just work hard; we each seek – through formal and informal feedback – to dramatically improve our own progress and that of our students.  At PCA, an ongoing quest for leadership improvement is not considered remedial; it is essential and ongoing for all staff.
