Special Education Teacher – Mild/Moderate
Education for Change Public Schools (EFCPS) believes it is the right for every child to have access to a high-quality, 21st-century education. Our mission is to provide a superior public education to Oakland’s most underserved children by creating a system of schools that focus relentlessly on our students’ academic achievement. Education for Change is looking for dynamic and visionary Special Education teachers who will engage students, families, and other members of our learning community to ensure high student achievement. The Special Education Teacher works closely with Director of Special Education Programs and site staff to ensure the quality of the special education instructional program on the site and to act as a resource in the areas of teacher support, federal accountability, and support to students with disabilities. They are a skilled teacher who is able to plan, provide, and supervise instruction that accelerates student learning. In addition, the Special Education Teacher assists in the training of site staff in areas of meeting the needs of students with disabilities and special education compliance. They will engage community partners and families in serving the whole child and ensuring ALL children achieve at high levels prepared to succeed in any setting. They should know how to successfully work in an urban elementary school with a high English Learner and low-income population, including students who have experienced trauma.
