We believe it’s precisely this variety of potential experiences, though, that sets The School District of Philadelphia apart.

Who We Look For

Our approach to selecting teachers is based on our unwavering commitment to the success of all students. Teachers are charged with high-stakes work: helping all students achieve the academic success and social-emotional growth that will expand their life opportunities. Each teacher commits to providing the best academic program to each student, especially those who have been traditionally under-served. To ensure that every classroom has a leader who strives to provide the best academic program to each student, especially those who traditionally are under-served, we seek teachers who embody the following distinguishing competencies:

  • Knowledge of and ability to deliver high-quality Instructional Practices
  • Demonstration of exceptional Personal Leadership
  • Incorporation of Cultural and Community Competence into their practice
  • Clear examples of being Results Driven
  • Alignment with our District’s vision for equity
  • The necessary Operational Skills to run an effective classroom

Opportunities

Our District is comprised of many thousands of people striving to ensure we deliver on the right of every child to an excellent education. Our teachers are critical in this effort. We seek creative and committed leaders who are resilient and responsive in the face of diminishing resources as we seek to make our school great. Apply now to join us in making our schools great.
