Academies of Math and Science – 2016 Arizona Charter School of the Year

For Today’s Scholars – Tomorrow’s Global Visionaries

Are you dedicated to influencing positive changes in at-risk communities by preparing students for college and a successful life and career? As part of the AMS family, your role as a middle school social studies teacher is to guide our motivated students through an advanced curriculum alongside our talented team of educators. Our passion is serving low-income neighborhoods and providing a STEM-focused education in conjunction with music, foreign language, and sports programs.

As we grow by roughly 30% each year, we are seeking intelligent, data-driven teachers eager to uphold the same academic excellence that made our flagship school in Tucson the 2016 AZ Charter School of the Year. Our results and success support our belief that all students can succeed – no matter their background – with the right programs in place, and more importantly, the right people leading the way. That’s where you come in.

**Position will be for the 2018-2019 school year**

Do you believe that there are no limits to how much you can improve in the art and science of teaching?
