Special Education Teacher Elementary 24-25

Polaris Tech Charter School
Ridgeland, SC, US
Polaris Tech Charter School is looking for a Certified Elementary Special Education Navigator (Teacher). We seek those who will join an outstanding education team to unleash student potential and cultivate aspirations - where students are career-focused, college-ready, and invested in the community.

At Polaris Tech Charter School, the Navigator:

Holds High Expectations for Equitable Outcomes: The Navigator will create a rigorous but supportive environment in which all students are held to high academic expectations. The Navigator will seek evidence of achieving goals to help all students meet expectations. The Navigator will move beyond the traditional notion of providing each student with the same learning experience and be willing to apply differentiated instructional strategies.

Embraces Competency-Based Learning: The Navigator will recognize that not all students learn at the same pace and differentiate instruction to meet students' diverse needs.

Values All Learners: In seeking to personalize instruction, the Navigator will recognize all students bring different strengths and needs to the classroom. The Navigator is aware of different learning preferences, diversity, and universal design principles and appropriately differentiates and adapts to meet the academic, social, and emotional individual needs of each student.

Has a Growth Mindset: Navigators constantly enhance their skill sets through professional development opportunities. Navigators use a growth mindset in and out of the classroom to take risks in developing engaging project-based learning opportunities for all learners. They also apply the same mindset to students by encouraging them to take risks and learn from their successes and failures.

  • Certification in the subject area (South Carolina or reciprocity state)
  • Experience in project-based learning is preferred
  • Experience with iReady is preferred
  • Willingness to work with other navigators to promote interdisciplinary studies
  • Ability to learn new technology tools quickly (e.g., database and web-based tools)
  • Ability to support and guide parents as well as students
  • Knowledge of effective and innovative instructional and student evaluation techniques
  • Ability to develop effective relationships with pupils, parents, navigators, staff and the community
  • Outstanding references from current and former supervisors
  • Satisfactory SLED (SC Law Enforcement Division) report

  • Benefits Packet
  • Retirement: 403b
  • Competitive Salary
