About this job

Pi STEM Learning Environment:

Teaching at Pi STEM is unlike teaching in a traditional environment. Our teachers know the individual strengths and growth areas for each student. We empower students to own their learning.

Teachers consider not only how students can integrate content information into their projects but also how they are applying cognitive skills (e.g. hypothesizing, artistic expression, etc.) that stretch across all content areas and the habits of success (e.g. perseverance) that allow them to prepare for the world beyond the classroom.

Pi STEM teachers do not see themselves as disseminators of knowledge but instead as facilitators and coaches to their students.

We are committed to continual growth at PiSTEM. We Prioritize developing leaders from within and are dedicated to providing professional development opportunities built into the academic year. We equip teachers with the tools necessary to improve their practice and tackle challenging issues.

What You Need:

K-12 Art Education Teaching Credential in Idaho
Bachelor’s Degree, Master's Degree a plus
Clear health and background check

You maintain high expectations for all students and believe all students can find success in school, college, and life.
