Are you looking for the opportunity to lead change? Do you want to help reimagine what schools should be? We put students in the driver’s seat, empowering students with the skills and habits they need to be successful in college and life. We need diverse, driven, and dynamic Spanish teachers to join our growing team in Tacoma to help realize our educational vision.

THE SUMMIT LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Teaching at Summit 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 schools are small communities where every student is known. Our schools are intentionally heterogeneous and reflect the diverse demographics of the communities they are a part of. As a teacher, this will require being culturally responsive and creating equitable learning pathways for all students.

Summit 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.

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