We value teachers who truly listen to what students are saying – who create a space for students to think their way through to answers, and explore insights and curiosities along the way. Teachers at Ascend share a hunger for feedback and professional growth, and a dedication to excellence.

We look for teachers who are excited to embrace a rigorous liberal arts program and restorative approach to discipline, and who believe that family and community partnerships are crucial.

We believe that our school buildings should reflect the incredible accomplishments that happen within their walls. All Ascend schools are housed in beautiful, newly renovated buildings where every detail is chosen to communicate our high aspirations for teaching and learning. See where we work(http://www.ascendlearning.org/schools/).

The founding high school special education teacher will work with general education teachers to develop and teach engaging lessons that follow the rigorous, Common Core aligned Ascend curriculum and co-create, implement, and support the development of rigorous curricula that develops scholars as problem solvers and critical thinkers.

  • A record of producing strong student achievement gains
  • The ability to create a classroom environment where students feel safe, supported, and challenged

  • An entrepreneurial mindset, with experience in start-up or founding environments preferred
