Job Description

The Opportunity:

We live in a world where math unlocks a future of possibilities. As a Math Teacher at Mastery you will work relentlessly to foster a love of math with your students while growing and developing in your craft.  From the moment they enter our buildings, young mathematicians at Mastery engage with the cutting edge, open-source Eureka Math Curriculum to develop the skills and understanding necessary to have strong mathematical fluency.

Our Kindergarteners through 8th Graders learn with Eureka so that, from 9th through 12th Grade, they are prepared for the rigors of higher math. From 9th through 12th Grade Mastery’s students study Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus (including options for Pre-Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Business Math, and AP Calculus) with the Agile Minds and CPM curricula.

Teaching math at Mastery you will set high expectations and provide high support so that all of your students are able to succeed. You will work alongside our Specialized Services and School Culture teams to ensure your students receive the help they need to thrive.
