At Success Academy Charter Schools, we're redefining what's possible in public education.

Job Description

As a high-performing, whole-child focused charter school, we are looking for talented, invested Art Teachers with a robust background in Visual Arts to join our community. We are looking for Art Teachers to engage our Scholars in fostering a love for art, exploring the creative process, and highlighting their artistic talents.

At Success, non- academic subjects aren't "extra," but essential. We expect our scholar talent teachers to be masters of their craft and share their passions, talents, and experiences in the classroom.

In this role, you will:

  • Build a safe and joyful classroom culture in which scholars develop a love for art;
  • Engage students in the creative process and foster their talents, while deepening their knowledge and understanding of art, design, and art history;
  • Collaborate with Art Teachers across the network to build a premier art program, while cultivating a school environment that prioritizes aesthetics and makes learning visible to the community;
  • Build a culture of self-expression, and utilize the inquiry-based teaching and learning approach as a way to press scholars' critical and conceptual thinking about art;
  • Engage in multiple Professional Developments to benefit from targeted, in-the-moment feedback on instruction, accelerating learning and growth with unparalleled support.

We invite you to apply if you:

  • Have graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Visual, Fine, or Studio Arts (Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, and Ceramics) or Art Education;
  • Have an outstanding record of academic achievement;
  • Have an art or art education portfolio that showcases your skill-set, and demonstrates your passion for art and learning;
  • Have experience with holistic exposures to art and art history;
  • Possess the ability to set ambitious goals for yourself and set high expectations for your Scholars;
  • Embrace collaboration.

Starting From: $60,000.00
