Resurrection Catholic School seeks a mission-driven, faith-filled, results-oriented teacher to serve as a middle school math teacher Grades 5- 8. Teachers at Resurrection maintain high expectations of themselves and their scholars, are organized and prepared to teach, and treat all scholars, families, and colleagues with the utmost respect. Prior experience with blended learning is not required, but talent, drive, and a desire to develop college-bound scholars and saints are mandatory.
About Resurrection School: Resurrection School has been serving the Boyle Heights Community in Los Angeles since 1950. It was founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Mary Immaculate. 85% of our students qualify for the federal free or reduced-price lunch program and 97% of our students are Hispanic. Resurrection School is a parish school that works to help our scholars achieve excellence while serving Christ and preparing for college. By focusing on the school’s four core values of faith, responsibility, respect, and perseverance in each class, our scholars are growing as students and active citizens in our neighborhood. Both our parish and school administration are committed to helping scholars and their families grow in faith and give back to our community to help assist those in need. Through the use of blended learning in our kindergarten through 8th-grade classes, we are able to use data to drive instruction, identify gaps, and monitor the instructional improvements required to meet the goal of developing “college-ready Catholic scholars.” We are transparent in our work through continual assessment of how our scholars and ourselves are growing and learning with honesty and humility. We bring our genuine self to work and allow our faith to guide our decisions, words, and actions. We value the differences of others and know that we learn best from multiple perspectives. We serve not because our students are Catholic, but because we are Catholic.
We set and pursue goals for ourselves and our scholars. We know that demonstrating hard work and grit is necessary to achieve these goals. We work with a purpose and do not let challenges prevent us from achieving excellent outcomes for students. We understand that the world around us is constantly changing and act swiftly to adjust and grow. We are positive and upbeat in order to show our scholars that there is nothing too big to handle.

Teach knowledge and skills based on prioritized standards, nurture confidence and character, and inspire the passion needed for our students to achieve their goals, live their best lives, and positively impact our community.

Analyze data (formal and informal) and use this information to drive and inform instruction. Help maintain a strong “no-excuses” school culture using elements including defined core values, class chants, and a school slogan; incentive systems framed around effort and grit; and dissemination of a college-bound vision.
