Full Time Math Teacher
The vision of East Hollywood High School is to be a safe place where film and individualized education help students discover and realize their life goals. We serve a population of students who feel they do not fit in traditional high schools. Many of our students are at-risk. We are looking for a full time Math teacher who has a passion for working with at-risk youth. We are a public charter high school in the SLC area and this position includes a full benefit package including Utah Retirement System.
The mission of the school is to serve students who can be considered "at-risk" of not graduating from high school by providing an engaging program centered around film production. While the majority of our electives are related to film and the arts, the core classes we offer are fairly traditional and an understanding of film-making is not necessary.
Because of the population we serve, we are looking for someone who has a passion for working with "at-risk" youth and strong skills in differentiated instruction and restorative justice practices. We are a small school serving about 375 students. This position requires a teacher to be able to work collaboratively with teachers of all subject areas and to prepare for and teach multiple mathematics courses throughout the school year.
Our teachers are a close team of supportive individuals. We truly care about each other. Staff retention is a priority of the administration. We offer staff free group counseling with a licensed therapist to prevent staff burnout. We are a state charter school so we don't answer to a district. The lack of bureaucracy is a tangible benefit that allows us to make immediate and impactful decisions that benefit our staff and students.
