Background on the Organization
Promesa Academy is deeply committed to ensuring that every child lives up to their power and potential through a quality public education. We are a new elementary school built upon research and innovative practices and are uniquely focused on educating students in San Antonio?s inner-city Westside. Through a departmentalized approach in the elementary years and a focus on making learning authentic and engaging, we believe that we can redefine what is possible in the elementary years.

At Promesa, you are joining a founding team with the unique opportunity to build a school from the ground up. If you are looking for the chance to drive transformative change in underserved communities and contribute to the movement to close the achievement gap in our lifetime, look no further than us.

The English Language Arts and Reading/Social Studies Teacher is entrusted with advancing the mission of Promesa Academy by creating rigorous, standards-aligned curriculum; building a joyful, loving, and nurturing environment in their classroom; spending time thoughtfully and intentionally creating authentic and engaging learning experiences for students; and collaborating with content-level and grade-level teams to continue to improve instruction. At Promesa, we believe that our teachers will define the success of our school and will be critical in ensuring that our students have access to a lifetime of opportunity.

Planning Year Stipends
Promesa Academy is in its planning year and this position presents the unique opportunity to be an active participant in helping to shape the vision of our school. We want our founding teachers to be involved in the creation of our vision as early as possible. To allow for this, we've allocated stipends of up to $5,000 for the 2019-2020 school year for founding teachers who are able to commit time in the evenings or weekends to the development of curriculum for Promesa.

Salary Scale
We believe that the work our teachers do is priceless and wish that we lived in a world where teachers were compensated more fairly. We have made it a priority to ensure that our salary scale is competitive to that of surrounding districts and promise to continue to be champions for our teachers, advocating for higher teacher pay as we work towards a world where teachers are truly valued for the work they do.
