Rocketship Public Schools is a network of elementary schools serving primarily socioeconomically disadvantaged students so that we can meet our mission of eliminating the achievement gap in our lifetimes. We are hiring outstanding K-5 Teachers in the Bay Area, Nashville, Milwaukee, and Washington, D.C. for the 2019-2020 school year.
At Rocketship Public Schools, we believe in the infinite possibility of human potential. We believe that every student deserves the right to dream, to discover, and to develop their unique potential. And it is our responsibility and our privilege to unleash the potential inside every Rocketeer we serve. Our non-profit network of public elementary charter schools propels student achievement, develops exceptional educators, and partners with parents who enable high-quality public schools to thrive in their community.
Our elementary teachers are subject experts who specialize in one specific content. Content specialization allows teachers to develop much deeper expertise in their subject matter, and creates a collaborative teacher team as they develop lesson plans alongside other talented teachers. But this is just the first level of our collaborative learning environment. Every school is supported by school leaders who provide instructional frameworks, professional development, and real-time coaching for teachers in their classroom every single week. Just as our teachers invest their time and energy in the progress of their students, we invest our time and energy in the progress of our teachers.
Rocketship's collaborative learning environment reaches well beyond the classroom. We are deeply committed to parent engagement. Teachers new to our network are always impressed by how deeply our Rocketeer parents are engaged in their school's community. Annual teacher home visits, monthly parent community meetings, and a vibrant parent volunteer network create solid relationships, a rich school culture and a devoted community that propels student achievement.
At Rocketship, you are joining a network and a community committed to excellence. If you are looking for the chance to drive transformative change in underserved communities and contribute to a national movement to close the achievement gap in our lifetime, look no further than Rocketship. We have ambitious plans to scale our system to serve more communities in need every year. We prioritize developing leaders from within and have invested in multiple career pathway programs for our teachers and school leaders.
