Leadership Public Schools has an urgent need for a Math Teacher to teach Navigate Math at our Richmond campus.
What is Navigate Math?Navigate Math is a unique 9th grade course that combines personalized and collaborative learning in order to support acquiring foundational understandings and developing essential academic habits and mindsets. A solution to accelerate math skills and empower students with proven results of 2.8 math grade levels gained per year. Navigate Math was tested in our classrooms to respond to real student needs and co-developed with Gooru.
