Teacher Humanities Guide

The STEAD School
 Commerce City, Adams County, Colorado, United States

Job Description

This is why you got into education! 

The STEAD School isn’t looking for folks satisfied with the traditional “teacher” role. InSTEAD, we are looking for culture-builders, relationship-builders, multiple-hat wearers, and those rare, passionate unicorns who embody the nobility of the teaching profession. Whether you call yourself a teacher, a Renaissance-ucator or an edu-preneur, the STEAD School is looking for “Founding Guides’ ‘ who want to co-create and co-vision side-by-side in partnership with both adults and adolescents. 

What is the STEAD School? 

The STEAD School is… 

  • A community of people who consider themselves stewards of their environment. Through our work and studies, we aim to address complex food, health, environmental, and energy challenges that face the state, the nation, and the planet. We are pioneers (not settlers) and adventurer-seekers building an out-of-the-box high school! You will be part of an educational movement and community that tackles education with meaning, purposeful work, interconnectedness, and heads, hearts, and hands.
  • A public, independent, 5 day-per-week charter school located in Reunion, serving a diverse demographic of students from all corners of the urban, sub-urban, rural communities of Northeastern Denver Metro, Brighton, Commerce City and greater Adams County. The STEAD School opened last year with our first cohort of Founding Guides and Founding 9th grade students. We are growing next year to add another team of second-year Founding Guides and a new class of 9th grade students as our current 9th years rise into their 10th grade studies.
  • A problem-driven, project-based curricular model committed to a competency-based personalized learning philosophy that believes every student will reach proficiency.
  • A marriage between Science, Technology, Environment, Agriculture, and Design within a well rounded, expansive and enriching family of creative, physical, artistic, musical, literary, and athletic pursuits.
  • A team committed to building a community that is diverse and inclusive of all humans. As a school community, we believe that diversity increases our strength as a community. We are looking for educators who are authentic to who they are and want to share their true selves within our community. e strive to support student leaders on their journeys in becoming critical thinkers and risk takers who are prepared to disrupt systems. Our aim is to exemplify the best practices in the field of education and serve all students of our community to the best of our abilities. The STEAD School is committed to an intentional, ever-reflective, practice of diversifying our board and team.
  • A small school with a BIG vision. Small class sizes with BIG ideas. Small on “schooling,” BIG on “learning.”

Who we are looking for 

The STEAD School is looking to hire adolescent-advocates and educators in all subject areas (math, science, social studies, English language arts, Art, Music, Foreign Language, Special Education) with the desire to equally: a) teach their “speciality,” b) share their talents & interests in other subjects, AND c) embrace the responsibility of a “generalist educator” by fostering the social and emotional health of adolescents. These are experts in shoring up the potential of young people until they can carry it fully for themselves into a future where they can realize the best version of who they were meant to be. Does such an adolescent advocate and educator exist? They do. We’ve seen them, we currently work with them. We’re searching for more of them. Is it you? 

The STEAD School is a growing community for people of all backgrounds and life experiences and inspired people – be they students, educators or partners – working together to address some of the world’s largest challenges. Diverse people, fully sharing their perspectives and experiences, interdependent on one another make this community inclusive, whole and healthy. With a reverence for adolescence, they make this community home for learners, leaders, visionaries, collaborators and environmental stewards.

Ideal candidates must have a reverence for the adolescent. In addition, ideal candidates must be trustworthy, innately-driven collaborators, have integrity, grit, conviction, a thirst for learning, a love for humanity, and a desire to share a mutual respect with adolescents. Ideal candidates model humility, healthy relationships and healthy risk-taking. The ideal candidate has great ideas, knows how to G.S.D., and has a desire to get dirty and wear boots to work. The ideal STEAD Founding Guide must be as much fun as they are professional!
