Description

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 5th-7th grade level Computer Science positions for the 2022-2023 academic year. If you have any interest or experience in coding and computer science, we can work with you on obtaining the proper state licensure.

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.

We are looking for a teacher interested in developing a computer science program to integrate with this rich content knowledge. Do you have any ideas about how students could use coding or programming to demonstrate their learning?

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, and physical education, and--starting next year--computer science. Our "specials" teachers collaborate regularly with classroom teachers to integrate with and support the core curriculum. They are not siloed; they are an integral part of our program.

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 (the gold standard retirement plan, which includes the school paying for a minimum of 10% of your base salary toward retirement). We offer competitive base salaries, contribute monthly to a Health Savings Account, pay for life insurance, and have a new program called "Every Teacher a Millionaire," which will help teachers achieve ambitious financial goals using our top-notch benefits package and sound principles of investing and financial management.

Our salary range is based on the Granite school district salary schedule. First-year teachers start at 53,000.
