School-based teaching jobs
Are you an experienced teacher who dreams of a profession transformed and schools re-imagined? Do you love students and teaching? Do you believe schools should be fun, empowering learning communities for students AND teachers? Do you believe that teachers are capable of managing their own profession just like lawyers, bankers and doctors do?
If your answer is yes to these questions, then we are looking for you to join our movement today. The Partners of Teaching Firms of America's Professional Preparatory Charter School (TFOA), are seeking dynamic, entrepreneurial and highly successful teachers who are interested in joining us as the first of a new and transformative elementary school model called the “Teaching Firm” here in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The Teaching Firm is the first teacher-led charter school of its kind, a model that uses TFOA’s unique and proprietary management structure, one similar to those used by law firms, medical practices, consulting firms, etc. (a hybrid of the nonprofit and professional-partnership management models). The result will be the realization of a new vision for the teaching profession and schools who serve those most in need of the highest quality education—a professional community where success and advancement does not mean one must leave the classroom; a school where teachers lead and manage the administration (not the other way around); a profession where teachers gain autonomy, prestige and high compensation, and students finally get educators who are unafraid to hold themselves 100% accountable for providing high quality instruction right from the start.
