Teacher Mirco School Educator (6th Grade)

Embark Education
 Denver, Denver County, Colorado, United States

Job Description

This is not an ordinary “teacher” role, and this is not an ordinary school. Embark Education is a micro-school embedded in two small businesses in North Denver that supports students to courageously inquire, engage, and discover a sense of self. Our vision is for all members of our community to learn courageously. Embark is built upon three design pillars- Embedded, Integrated and Learner Centered.

At Embark, we think of Pinwheel Coffee, Framework Cycles, our “Learning hubs” and the greater Denver area as our classroom; curriculum and learning are and will be integrated regularly into the shop operations. Learning is rigorous, but relevant to the work in the shops and students should never be left asking “why am I learning this?”. Researching world history, geography and climate will be a part of ordering and understanding where the beans for the coffee shop are sourced. Physics experiments will be interlaced with repairing bike gears, etc. This is not a role of a traditional teacher and even the use of the title “Educator” is only relevant if you go to the Latin root “Educo,” meaning to draw out from what is already inside. The micro-school is learner centered and often self-directed learning environment and the role of the adults is to cultivate an environment where deep learning and exploration can occur.
