Teacher • High School Science (Grades 9 – 12)

La Veta School District RE-2
 La Veta, Huerfano County, Colorado, United States

Job Description

La Veta School District RE-2 is a rural district located at the base of the Spanish Peaks in beautiful Southern Colorado. We are a student-focused organization serving approximately 210 students in preschool through 12th grade.  District activities are designed to maximize available resources in support of our mission to graduate lifelong learners and productive citizens.

 La Veta School District’s vision for success is to be a model for rural education in the State of Colorado.  The achievement of that vision is focused on four major priorities:

  • High Quality Staff,
  • Excellent Environment,
  • Productive Partnerships, and
  • Ever Improving Student Outcomes.

Success begins early with an investment in pre-school and Kindergarten.  We focus on incorporating music, art, and physical education as essential elements for learning in our early grades and beyond.

Secondary students receive support in their exploration of career and educational interests through:

  • college credit in concurrent enrollment and dual credit classes,
  • vocational classes with focus in Agri and conventional business activities,
  • work/study,
  • rigorous core content curriculums,
  • and engaging elective courses.

Our staff members report that the number one reason they return to La Veta Public Schools every year is because of our excellent work environment.  Additionally, we make annual investments in salary and benefit packages and though we are rural, we are not remote!  La Veta is an hour from Alamosa, Pueblo or Trinidad and three hours from Red Rocks Amphitheater.  We pay full education and experience and we are always looking for creative professionals who want to innovate.

In 2022, we will move our school community into a brand new school building!  We are currently seeking ambitious teachers to contribute to our team in the following areas:

  • High School Science (Grades 9 – 12) with courses including Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, and Physics. Preference will be given to candidates qualified, or willing to become qualified, to teach concurrent enrollment at grades 11 and 12.

La Veta High School prides itself on pursuing excellence in academics and athletics. Coaching positions may also be available, including junior high volleyball and basketball, opportunities to assist or coach 6-man football, and junior high and high school track.
