Alpha is committed to ensuring that every student is prepared and ready to get to and through college. The AVID Readiness Teacher will be responsible for equipping our students with the soft and hard skills to be successful in college. The AVID Readiness Teacher will serve as an integral part of the teaching staff and will take ownership of a full teaching schedule primarily focused on doubling down efforts in core subjects such as English & Writing/Composition. Additionally, the AVID Readiness Teacher will work in tandem with our Director of Social & Emotional Learning and our College Counselor to ensure we meet our college readiness goals. Ideally we are looking for folks with previous teaching experience in core high school subjects.This individual will have high expectations for all students and a willingness to work hard, doing whatever is necessary to ensure the success of every student. They possess a growth mindset, strong personal character, and a consistent track record of high performance that is results-oriented. They are hard working, punctual, urgent, energetic, and embrace a spirit of self-reflection with a constant desire to improve. Finally, Alpha’s teachers hold a deep belief that all students can succeed in college, and that it is the responsibility of secondary school teachers to ensure that success.
