East Hollywood High School is public charter school located in West Valley City, Utah. 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.
East Hollywood High School is seeking a full time History and Social Studies teacher who is licensed in the State of Utah. 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 several different history and social science 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 students.
