Teaching at KIPP Chicago:
We are looking for highly dedicated educators who will bring a “whatever it takes” attitude to helping children succeed. KIPP Chicago teachers are responsible for delivering effective, high-quality, rigorous instruction in their content areas, producing unmatched academic results and student growth. KIPP Chicago gives its students a strong foundation in the core academic subjects with an emphasis on developing the knowledge and skills necessary for success in school and in life. The KIPP Chicago community holds itself to high standards, cognizant that success can be achieved by all, regardless of challenging circumstances, through team work, tenacity, and focused dedication.
KIPP Chicago teachers are in school Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, with most arriving before and staying after these hours. Many KIPP Chicago teachers take on additional roles within the school, including working as Saturday School Coordinators and Grade Level Chairs. Though they face demanding schedules, all KIPP Chicago teachers are strongly supported by experienced and dedicated leadership and staff. KIPP Chicago students are in school nine hours a day, and they attend Saturday School once a month and a mandatory summer session. On average, KIPP Chicago students spend 60% more time in the classroom than their peers in the Chicago Public School system. The incorporation of mandatory summer school, Saturday School, and extended hours during the week allows KIPP Chicago schools to develop innovative and highly effective instruction to all of our students. In addition, our students’ first lesson is learning the year they will go to college, and each classroom is named after the college or university of its homeroom teacher.
Working at the KIPP Chicago Shared Services Team:
KIPP Chicago is also looking for dynamic and dedicated people to join its shared services team. Every position is critical to the overall KIPP Chicago mission of providing the best education to Chicago’s most under-served communities and children. We believe that every role contributes to a strong culture of achievement that helps our students make significant academic gains and continue to excel in high school and college. Please see the individual job postings for available non-instructional positions.
