The Kauffman School is currently recruiting special teachers for its fifth through eighth grade middle school and its ninth grade high school classes. The specials classes will focus on art, music, dance, and performing arts. The Kauffman School is seeking a dedicated and inspirational Theater Teacher. The Theater Teacher is an integral part of the total school program and will be responsible for developing in each student an appreciation of the art of theater as part of general culture; teaching techniques of vocal and body expression; teaching onstage and backstage production; and for discovering and developing talents of students in the field of theater.

Teachers in the Kauffman Schools are not classroom teachers, but rather subject teachers in accordance with a high school model. Because we are a growing charter network, our application and interview process identifies candidates who would be great teachers, no matter the content or grade level. Know that your grade-level preferences will be a point of discussion in future conversations and interviews, and we value teachers being flexible in both content and grade preferences

How to apply
Interested applicants should complete a formal application through the Kauffman School Careers page at www.kauffmanschool.org/. Your cover letter should address your interest in working at the Kauffman School and prior experiences that make you a uniquely qualified candidate:
