June Jordan is hiring for a special education teacher to complete our team of five teachers who work collaboratively to build an inclusive and positive school experience for our 27% of students with IEPs. The ideal candidate has experience working with diverse student needs in a wide range of disabilities that span from mild to severe as well as working with general education teachers to make sure that all student modifications and accommodations are being served in the general education classroom. This position is a flexible mild/moderate position or a moderate/severe position. We are looking for a candidate who has experience working in an urban school environment serving students and families with a wide range of needs with a culturally-relevant lens.
Spanish/English job description:
June Jordan School for Equity seeks a versatile Spanish teacher to complete the two person department. Candidates should be well-versed in teaching both Spanish heritage as well as beginning and intermediate Spanish students, as June Jordan offers two years of Spanish instruction for both heritage and non-heritage students of Spanish. As we are a small school with a social justice mission, it is imperative that the candidate approach teaching Spanish with a critical framework which links language study to liberation, and be able to communicate this to students. In the beginning and intermediate classes, the department currently employs the TPRS method (Total Proficiency though Reading and Speaking), a communicative method focusing on language acquisition and verbal fluency through storytelling rather than decontextualized grammar or textbook learning. Candidates should be comfortable with similar pedagogies and/or open to being trained. In the heritage classes, students learn about relevant history and culture in the target language as well as bolstering their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
The position may also include teaching one or two sections of English, depending on need. Since we are a small school, only one credential is needed to teach both subjects, but candidates should be familiar with teaching humanities.
Please note: JJSE is a San Francisco Unified School District high school, and candidates must apply via SFUSD to be considered for openings at JJSE. The first step in the process, which can be completed immediately, is to submit an application at the SFUSD Search Soft portal.
