About this job
K-12 PE/Health Teacher works with all students in K through 12th grade and collaborates with classroom teachers within an interdisciplinary structure.
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.
By design, our school is made up of small communities where every student is known. Our school is intentionally heterogeneous and reflect the diverse demographics of the community.
Pi STEM teachers plan by deeply understanding student data and determining what group and individual supports are needed for their students to move forward on complex projects.
This planning requires teachers to consider not only how students are integrating content information into their projects but also how they are applying cognitive skills (e.g. hypothesizing) 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 Pi STEM. 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.
