Teachers are responsible for the education of their students, are expected to demonstrate high character and are accountable to the Principal. They are employed at will, and operate as professionals within the guidelines established by the School Charter and the School Board. They will provide instruction that is consistent with the Core Knowledge Sequence and the high school curriculum. Teachers are responsible for adherence to the Kennedy Charter mission and philosophy; have a depth of understanding in one or more academic disciplines if teaching upper grades and a breadth of understanding across the curriculum if teaching in the elementary school; command of the English language; excellent teaching ability; ability to ensure classroom decorum and maintain good parental relations; and professionalism in all aspects of the job.
Minimum job requirements include a Bachelor's Degree in a relevant field; demonstrated mastery of an academic discipline (upper grades and specialists); ability and willingness to teach the Core Knowledge Sequence or high school curriculum as defined in the charter; ability to speak and write clearly and effectively; and conviction in the values of a rigorous liberal arts education. Desirable characteristics include previous teaching experience or experience working with young people; a liberal arts education; experience with the Core Knowledge or higher liberal arts teaching; and experience in charter or independent schools. Kennedy is a K-12 charter school that is in an exciting transformational phase as it converts to a back-to-basics traditional school from an alternative school only a few years ago.
