Monticello Academy is an academically rigorous charter school located in West Valley City, Utah for professionals who love to grow!
Monticello is currently accepting resumes for 3rd grade positions for the 2020-2021 academic year. Applicants should either hold a current teaching license or have relevant work experience in a classroom.
We are looking for applicants who are passionate about student learning, collaboration and using data to guide instruction.
We follow the Core Knowledge Sequence, which spells out rich content knowledge for every grade level. Students don't just learn bland "skills." They learn real history, science, and literature in every grade level, from Ancient Egypt in 1st grade to Medieval History in 4th grade. Every year students delve into exciting content knowledge that they just don't get in other schools.
In addition, we use Singapore Math, which focuses on hands-on learning, conceptual understanding, and mental math/math fluency (yes, our students know their math facts inside and out!). It is the most successful math curriculum in the world and it is as fun to teach as it is for students to learn.
We are a college-prep school, which means we challenge students; hold them to high, measurable standards; and accelerate learning wherever possible. We also offer rich specials courses that support our Core Knowledge program. Students get consistent, quality instruction in visual art, music, Chinese, and physical education. Our specials teachers collaborate regularly with classroom teachers to integrate with and support the core curriculum.
Our regular paid collaboration time and effective meeting practices make the teamwork experience unlike any other school. We are positive, take ownership of our results, and support each to make amazing things happen for kids.
We strive to create the right balance of collaboration, direction, support, and autonomy, and we give teachers many opportunities to lead and create.
Even though we are a charter school, we offer Utah Retirement System benefits. We offer competitive base salaries, contribute monthly to a Health Savings Account, and our employees have never paid anything for health insurance.
