We set out to tackle this education crisis with a groundbreaking school design that delivers a rigorous, whole-child education to students from all backgrounds. Today, as the fastest growing, highest-performing charter school network in New York, our network of 45 K-12 schools outperforms every district in the state, proving irrefutably that all children are capable of excellence.

We now need a results-driven Chess Teacher to join our school community.

In this role, you will:

- Build a classroom culture in which scholars develop a love for chess and enhance critical thinking and problem-solving skills;
- Teach a rigorous chess curriculum to scholars that begins with chess basics and progresses to checkmate patterns and tactics;
- Coach and develop a high-performing team of scholars to compete in city, state, and national chess tournaments;
- Invest parents by coordinating and leading family chess nights and internal network chess tournaments; and
- Engage in training and collaborating with chess teachers and leaders across the network to benefit from targeted feedback and professional development related to instruction and content.

We'd be excited to hear from you if:

- You have an advanced understanding of the game of chess; tournament experience a plus;
- You have teaching experience with a record of propelling student's understanding and love of chess;
- You are a person of high moral character; and
- You are passionate about chess and learning.
