Humanities Teacher

Kreiva Academy

Our goal at Kreiva Academy is to help students of all abilities discover who they are and what success will mean for them, and then encourage them to reach beyond perceived limits to achieve these dreams. Kreiva Academy is searching for an innovative and enthusiastic High School Humanities Teacher to round out the faculty of our transformational new school now in its third year.

 


Kreiva Academy teaching positions require teamwork, flexibility, and a willingness to work within and outside one’s subject area to help students meet mastery-based standards for graduation. Teachers use background knowledge from their areas of expertise to build project-based, trans-disciplinary courses. In addition to facilitating learning within multi-grade, topic-based modules, teachers serve as Student Crew Leaders and collaborate as members of the Faculty. We offer our faculty and staff the opportunity to fully engage their own love of learning and to share that passion, building connections and community that will shape lives within our school and transform the educational landscape within our state.
