Job Description:

Impact Academy of Arts and Technology High School seeks a 12th grade English Teacher to lead students to academic success in a diverse, compassionate school community at our Hayward campus.WHO WE ARE

Our mission is to transform the lives of students - especially those who will be the first in their family to attend college - by preparing them for success in college, career, and life.At Envision Education, we believe the current achievement gap reflects a systemic failure to understand how kids learn, what motivates them to learn, and what they need in order to learn well. We know that vibrant learning communities apply compassion and high expectations to inspire and empower students. With a population that is 75% first-generation college-bound, our approach is specifically designed to increase student engagement, deepen integration and understanding, promote active learning, and ensure college success.Envision Education is a national model for using Project Based Learning and Performance Assessment to prepare students for success in college and in life.

What's more, our students persist in college once they enroll. Our college persistence rate is 87% from first to second year, compared to the national average of 74%.With a student to staff ratio of 12:1, our schools offer students a rigorous academic experience and a diverse, compassionate community in which to grow. Our students are inspired and empowered to be leaders in their high school education and their communities.OUR APPROACH

We believe that deeper learning experiences challenge students to think critically, solve problems resourcefully, and collaborate productively. Students have an opportunity to use these skills and show what they know through portfolio defenses. In 8th, 10th and 12th grade, Envision students present a defense of learning, demonstrating their growth and learning. Similar to a master's thesis defense, these presentations are required to graduate in 12th grade and are invaluable in preparing for life after high school. They practice for these defenses through regular exhibitions and in-class presentations. Our students say portfolio defense is the hardest thing they have ever done, and nothing has prepared them more for college.THE POSITIONReporting to the school Principal, the Teacher will lead students in an academic vision of success - that focuses on Envision's graduate profile rooted in ethnic studies, CCSS, and college/career readiness. -
