PiSTEM Learning Environment:



Teaching at PiSTEM 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. Our teachers stay with a group of students for up to three-years. By design, our schools are small communities where every student is known. Our schools are intentionally heterogeneous and reflect the diverse demographics of the community Pi STEM is a part of. As a teacher, you will be expected to be culturally responsive and to create equitable learning pathways for all students.



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.



What you will do: Teach health to high school students and PE to elementary and middle school students. Be flexible with mode of teaching: online, hybrid AM/PM, or traditional.

• Commitment to uphold Pi STEM’s values, belief that all children deserve a rigorous and equitable education that prepares them for college and for life. • Teaching Credential in Idaho or the ability to get Idaho Teaching Credentials, Endorsements in K-12 PE and 6-12 Health • Bachelor’s Degree • Clear health and background check
