Job Description

Uncommon Middle School English Language Arts (ELA) teachers are passionate about literature and building an engaging classroom culture. Our teachers develop subject mastery and have a keen sense of the socio-emotional changes middle schoolers experience. At the heart of all ELA classes is an emphasis on writing and discourse designed to give students the tools to be confident in the power of their own voice. Teachers are trained in a variety of research-based instructional strategies to prioritize discussion, ignite a passion for literature, build reading comprehension, and promote agency. By the conclusion of eighth grade, students are prepared for the academic autonomy and college preparatory focus of our high schools.


1.     Instruction

You'll empower students to be their fullest selves by teaching an inclusive, culturally responsive curriculum that seeks equitable outcomes for all students.

You'll guide students to analyze literary and non-narrative texts, assess an author's purpose, write in a variety of genres, and grapple with meaningful questions in student-led discourse. 

You'll create an inclusive and safe environment, allying with students to speak and write in their authentic voice.

You’ll guide students to choose books of interest independently, as they develop their own passions and interests as readers.

2.     Data Analysis

You'll meet weekly with your principal and/or instructional coach to analyze and respond to trends in student work samples and assessments.

You'll learn and implement strategies to differentiate instruction for all learners in your classroom.

3.     School Culture

You’ll build positive relationships with students to ensure they feel seen, loved, and heard.

You’ll partner with students’ families to ensure appropriate resources are available to support their child's learning needs.

You'll engage in practice-based professional development, mentorship, and coaching sessions.

You'll participate in weekly, school-wide meetings to cultivate community, model our core values, and encourage student achievement.

You'll partner with your grade level team to develop academic goals and practice instructional strategies.
