Hear From our Teachers
We Believe… the KIPP Credo
WHY YOU’LL LOVE TEACHING AT KIPP
You’ll Be the Change
You’ll be part of a network of 183 KIPP schools across the country supporting 70K students and alumni on the journey from kindergarten through college graduation. Our alumni are graduating college at 4X the rate of their peers, proving what’s possible in education.
You’ll Be Valued
Our teachers are well compensated and have the tools, training, and technology (including a fully subsidized iPhone and laptop) to bring innovation to the classroom.
You’ll Never Stop Learning
The joy (and the pain!) of teaching is that there’s always more to learn and room to grow. We support our teachers – from those in their 1st year to those in their 21st year – with individualized coaching, professional learning communities, leadership development programs, and extensive resource-sharing.
You’ll Teach Character and Academics
We believe that character strengths such as gratitude, hope, and perseverance are just as important to life outcomes as academic success. That’s why we engage students in meaningful conversations and authentic opportunities to explore and strengthen character.
You’ll Have Fun!
Whether at a family carnival, a staff talent show, or a Gratitude Celebration, we create and celebrate joyful moments with our students, their families, and each other. Work Hard. Be Nice. Have Fun.
THE HIRING PROCESS
Complete a job application, complete with resume, cover letter, and any relevant info you think would make you a great KIPP teacher.
You’ll chat with one of our hiring managers who will get to know you beyond just your resume to see if you and KIPP are right for each other.
School Leader Review
Our recruitment team will discuss your application with our school leaders to gauge their interest in having you be part of our team and family.
School Interview and Demo Lesson
If we like what we hear from you, you’ll meet a school leader in person and do a demo lesson so we can see your awesomeness in action.
