      WANTED: EXCEPTIONAL SCIENCE TEACHER

      Do you believe every child can climb the mountain to college with
      the right amount of support and direction? At KIPP Summit Academy,
      all students will learn. KIPP Summit Academy (KSA), a college
      preparatory, Title I, charter middle school in San Lorenzo, CA (just
      outside of Oakland), empowers students to build academic and moral
      skills to become agents of social change who will succeed in high
      schools, colleges, and the global community.

      At KIPP Summit Academy, we define ourselves by our commitment to
      learning and the high academic and behavioral standards we hold for
      every member of our learning community. We have built a "team and
      family" centered culture based on clear, school-wide expectations
      for student behavior and a commitment to embodying four core values:
      excellence, teamwork, curiosity, and integrity.

      KSA is currently looking to hire an exceptional 7th and 8th grade
      science teacher who is willing to do whatever it takes to get our
      students on a college preparatory track for life. Our students have
      worked extremely hard over the past 3+ years to close the
      achievement gap. Therefore, we are looking for an addition to
      our "team and family" that will educate our 7th and 8th graders at
      an extremely high level and inspire them about the importance of
      science in their lives and community.

      • Maintain high standards for academic achievement
      • Motivate and engage students with dynamic, well-planned lessons
      • Collaborate with team members
      • Maintain high standards for behavior
      • Do whatever it takes to help students learn
      • Establish and maintain constant communication with parents
      • Model constant learning
      • Exemplify dedication and confidence

      Required experience:
      • B.A. or B.S. degree
      • At least two years teaching experience
      • CA credential - or - progress toward receiving credential by the
      end of 2007
      • Curriculum development and design
      • Commitment to teaching historically underserved students


      Desired (but not essential) Experience:
      • Bilingual
      • Prior experience teaching science
