Social Studies Teacher
City Academy is an established, accredited 23 year public charter Title I school in downtown Salt Lake City serving a wide range of students in grades 7-12 and dedicated to helping all students achieve academic and personal success, fostering responsible engaged citizenship, and inspiring a lifelong love of learning.
We are searching for a dynamic secondary Social Studies teacher who is a dedicated learning-focused educator. This is a great opportunity for a committed and enthusiastic teacher eager to engage students in the richness of US history, world history, and geography through the use of evidence, interpretation and analysis. City Academy’s social studies department makes exemplary use of active learning and investigative approaches, including frequent field work. Extended thinking and writing is prized and practiced often. Candidates should have experience bringing a broad intellectual perspective to their work and be eager to collaborate with colleagues in the continuing development of our curriculum and our school.
The successful candidate will also be ready to contribute to the life of our school through involvement with student extra-curricular programs and through participation with colleagues in professional learning opportunities, particularly our work with Utah’s Personalized Competency-Based Learning.
