Our mission is to empower students to reach their full potential and prepare them for a successful future.
The Role
Elementary Lead teachers are certified educators teaching in a K-2nd grade classroom. Our teachers combine the ability to motivate and educate, to develop academic skills as well as character skills, and to make a college preparatory education relevant both now and for the future. MSJB teachers have a growth mindset and are afforded multiple professional development opportunities throughout the year, including Responsive Classroom training, Eureka MathWit and WisdomWilson’s Fundations, collaborative planning sessions, whole and small group school-wide focus professional development, team analysis of performance data and other personalized opportunities for teachers to grow.
