Openings for 2021-2022 School Year

 7th/8th grade English/Language Arts Teacher

At Innovation, ELA teachers strive to inspire students to build and nurture a love of reading and writing through continued practice,  coaching and mentoring.   We use direct instruction sparingly as one tool rather than the norm.   English/Language Arts teachers at IACS use a largely teacher prepared curriculum that supports the Common Core/Massachusetts frameworks. 

Teachers who thrive at Innovation have passion and expertise in their content area that they eagerly share with students.  IACS teachers value collaboration.  We have a strong mentoring program for teachers new to the school and those new to teaching, including career changers and highly value supporting teachers in the professional community. Our school has a close-knit alliance of teachers, students, administration, and parents. The student population is diverse because students come to us from nine sending districts, the largest of which comes from Lowell.  Teachers serve as advisors to a group of 12-13 students each year, building strong relationships with students outside of the academic classroom.  

Ideal candidates will be prepared to teach ELA.  We require a bachelor’s degree, ideally in Education or English or related fields; some coursework or work experience in teaching is important.  Teachers are responsible for creating a stimulating classroom environment that helps motivate each student to practice and hone their written and verbal communication skills. Our ultimate goal being to shape empathetic, socially conscious individuals who will enhance the world around us.  We expect our teachers to find joy from teaching a wide range of students and creatively manage their own classrooms.

Please apply through School Spring.
