Math Educators at Commerce are practitioners who believe in the values of agency and relationship and are willing to advocate for equity both in and out of their classrooms. Commerce is prepared – considering the centrality of this work to the life-long success our students – to invest substantially in the training, coaching, leadership development, and networking necessary for revolutionary practitioners to thrive in the following job responsibilities:


We are a school immersed in a bold and substantive multi-year redesign process to personalize the high school experience around college and career success. We have innovated school partnerships, schedules, and programming to allow Commerce students to choose from three different college experiences, including a multi-year, 20-credit, early college or applied career pathway at Springfield Technical Community College (STCC), up to 12 credits in a dual enrollment program on the Commerce campus through Worcester State University or Westfield State University, and/or direct work-force entry via Propel America internship pathways in IT, healthcare, or advanced manufacturing.

We are a team of activist-educators who are afforded generous time to further our learning together in department and grade level teams, regular substantive coaching and feedback from partners, peers, and leaders to improve our practice, and deeply embedded teacher leadership opportunities to unite our voices in service of dismantling institutionalized racism in and around our school community.


If you meet some of the qualifications above, we encourage you to apply or reach out for more information. We know that historically marginalized groups – including people of color, women, people from working class backgrounds, and people who identify as LGBTQ – are less likely to apply unless and until they meet every requirement for a job.
