About Caliber Public Schools
Caliber’s Mission is to achieve educational equity by shifting the experiences, expectations and outcomes for students in historically underserved communities. Our strengths-based educational program validates, affirms, respects and supports students, families and staff members to reach their full potential. Caliber graduates will be academically college ready; have emotional intelligence or ‘EQ’; be critical thinkers, and have the skills and desire to be changemakers in their communities and the world..
Caliber’s four graduate pillars--Heart, Smart, Think, Act--guide our work. Caliber teaches computer science as a core academic subject K-8th grade to directly challenge the inequitable presence of women and underrepresented minorities in the computer science industry. We are a community-based organization and celebrate the diversity of the communities we serve. Our parents are active partners; frequently engaging through school events, restorative practices, and academic support.
As we grow, we are looking for educators and leaders who want the opportunity to use their voice to build something new; to be a part of a team that's building something from the ground up. Our first school, Beta Academy in Richmond, CA, opened in 2014 and ChangeMakers Academy in Vallejo, CA opened in fall 2016. We plan to open additional schools in future years as we grow to nearly 4,000 seats K-12 in the Bay Area.
We are looking for a flexible and student-focused Substitute Teacher. In this position, you will report daily to the school site for an assignment of any grade level or subject area depending on need. You will be a critical part of the instructional team providing coverage, additional capacity and support to teachers. In the event that teacher coverage is not required on a given day, you will support the operations of the school site as an instructional assistant, yard supervisor, and or/fill in as necessary.
This is a unique opportunity for an individual who is interested in gaining classroom teaching experience and/or is working towards their credential. You will have the opportunity to work in an innovative environment where you can develop your skill set.
