Special Education Teacher - LEAD Public Schools

Nashville, Tennessee

Job Category: Special Education Teacher

Posted on August 14, 2017


Special Education (SPED) teachers are champions for the cause of equality within the school and make sure that their students' needs are being met. Our ideal SPED teacher is passionate about supporting our students with IEPs, loves working with students who need the most support, is flexible, is coachable, and wants to grow as a teacher.

The LEAD Environment

Our SPED teachers work relentlessly with their teammates to ensure that all of their students not only are receiving additional support to enhance their learning and understanding of classroom material, but also meet the established Tennessee standards by the end of the year. This incredible work is done through coaching and support from administration, implementing regular feedback, collaboration with colleagues, data analysis, and working to make sure that students who come in below grade level rise above the challenges they face.


Above all else, we look for teachers with the belief that all students, regardless of background and current ability, can succeed in high school, college, and life. In addition, we seek individuals with a data-driven mindset, willing to reflect and continuously improve their practice through observations, coaching, and feedback. These beliefs must be coupled with current certification or ability to be certified for the 2017-18 school year in Tennessee (required) (SPED K-12 certification in mild/moderate or comprehensive).


In addition to a competitive salary and full benefits, we offer a relocation stipend and the opportunity to improve your practice through coaching and support.
