Job Description

A richly intellectual, diverse independent school in South Bay Los Angeles is looking for an ELL educator who cultivates strong relationships with students in a culturally responsive manner and communicates effectively with diverse populations! 

Join a community that values collegiality, espouses the highest standards, and provides mutual support and collaboration by using the school's mission to design and support the academic, extracurricular, social, and emotional success of students.

As an ELL educator and student advocate, you will: 
  • Prepare for and teach 2 ELL courses for 9th grade and 10th grade that align with effective pedagogical practice and follow ELD state standards
  • Serve as a resource to international students in resolving academic and personal issues, including homestay situations; work closely with the student services team in providing support, including ongoing cultural integration, for international students and their families; coach colleagues on practices that support ELL student success both in and out of the classroom.
  • Act as primary liaison between international students and their families and the domestic community.
  • Work across all the departments of the school, including student services, admissions, and academic departments, to run a program to support our international students both academically and socially. 
  • Use strong pedagogical skills and depth of content expertise to design meaningful learning experiences that foster a passion for learning in students.
  • Demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the reflective, iterative nature of teaching and thus seek continuous growth and development as a lifelong learner.
  • Effectively manage and attend to both long term projects and near-term needs
  • Embrace the school’s culture as an engaged, energetic, and thoughtful community member.
You should have:
  • A master’s degree (teaching credential preferred).
  • A minimum of 3 years' teaching experience at the high school level, a deep knowledge of the subject matter, and familiarity with student-centered approaches to teaching
  • Experience with backwards lesson design that integrates a range of both formative and summative assessments
  • A commitment to multicultural educational practices and working in a diverse community.
  • Availability to engage fully with the on-boarding process.
At this school, you'll enjoy:   
  • medical, dental, vision insurance.
  • a competitive compensation plan commensurate with experience
  • paid Holidays and vacation days.
  • retirement plan options.
  • professional development opportunities to further develop inclusive teaching practices.
  • a nurturing and supportive community committed to ensuring that an inclusive environment is provided for the respectful exchange of multiple perspectives.
This is an 80% position, though possibly flexible to be full-time dependent upon qualifications and institutional needs.
