Kindergarten and 1st Grade Teacher
Lafayette Preparatory Academy, a charter school, will open in the fall of 2013 initially as a K-1 charter school with 94 students and grow with its students through 5th grade. Our mission is to prepare students for academic and collegiate success and equip them to enter the world as active, responsible, and involved citizens and leaders. We will utilize an extended day to implement research-proven curriculum focused on math, literacy, critical thinking, and science. As a community school, serving the needs of students from Downtown/Near Southside neighborhoods, LPA will support social and economic growth and sustainability in the city of St. Louis.
Teaching at Lafayette Preparatory Academy:
Lafayette Preparatory Academy (LPA) seeks 4 (2 Kindergarten; 2 first-grade) passionate educators and relentless over-achievers who have proven to be ambitious self-starters and operate with both a sense of urgency and responsibility. LPA teachers are expected to utilize data to drive instructional decisions and develop differentiated instruction to meet the needs of each and every student. Teaching at Lafayette Preparatory Academy is ideal for an educator with deep passion for instruction and who is eager to participate in rigorous development to perfect his/her craft. In addition to daily grade-level planning time and weekly professional development, teachers will receive regular advice, support, guidance, and feedback from a supportive leader. Teachers will also participate in four weeks of professional development and common planning activities prior to students arriving.
