“Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.”
At Equitas Academy, we intentionally transform the lives of our scholars through their academic and character educations. We believe that no single factor impacts their success more than the quality of their teachers. In creating the best, most collaborative, most reflective team of teachers possible, we also want to be intentional and authentic about creating a teaching staff that reflects our scholars and how they move through the world. We believe it is our duty and honor to prepare our scholars to be active citizens who engage in the work of social justice and transforming their own communities—in addition to getting a degree from a four-year college or university. We are seeking to hire teachers and staff from the same or similar communities to join us in this work and be role models for our scholars. We are committed to building and supporting a teaching force that includes strong representation from teachers of color and members of the LGBTQ community. We welcome and strongly encourage all applicants who are committed to the mission that all students deserve a chance to transform their future and their community through public education.
