TEP opened its Kindergarten in August 2016 and a 1st grade in August 2017. We will be adding a 2nd grade in August 2018.
TEP's Middle School (5th through 8th grade) is currently in its ninth year of operation.
Our intensive teacher hiring process consists of the three stages described below.
STAGE 1: APPLICATION
Stage 1 of the application process consists of 4 components. Applicants for Master teaching positions must submit the following: (1) a cover letter, (2) a resume, (3) evidence of student learning, and (4) an original curricular tool. (The submission requirements for Apprentice teacher applicants are somewhat different.) The requirements for each component, including submission instructions, are specified in detail in the application. Submit your application here.
STAGE 2: DEMO-LESSON & IN-PERSON INTERVIEWS
Candidates who are invited to the 2nd stage of the process participate in a formal in-person interview and teach a demo lesson.
Applicants for kindergarten,1st grade, or 2nd grade teaching positions teach a demo lesson to a class of current TEP kindergarten or 1st grade students.
Applicants for middle school teaching positions teach a demo lesson to a class of current TEP middle school students.
The purpose of the demo lesson is to assess the candidate’s ability to (a) effectively manage a classroom, (b) create a high-engagement learning environment and (c) provide tangible evidence of student learning. The purpose of the interview is to learn more about the candidate’s experience in the classroom, gain deeper insight into his or her pedagogical approach, and ascertain whether there is an appropriate fit between the candidate’s goals and growth orientation and TEP’s mission and professional development structure.
STAGE 3: A FULL DAY OF TEACHING Candidates who successfully pass the demo lesson and interview round are invited to participate in the third and final stage: a full day of teaching.
Applicants for kindergarten, 1st grade, or 2nd grade teaching positions spend a full day at TEP's Early Childhood campus, teaching 2 to 3 different classes of current TEP kindergarten or 1st grade students.
Applicants for middle school teaching positions spend a full day at TEP's Middle School campus, teaching 3 to 4 classes of current TEP middle school students.
Master teachers who most successfully demonstrate the ability to positively impact student outcomes will be offered teaching positions with TEP.
