This is a part-time position that includes 0.6 FTE Math plus another .2 FTE (ideally in Physical Science). Teachers at NCS are relationship builders, content enthusiasts, and innovative thinkers. They utilize the school’s unique instructional framework to develop and deliver personalized and proficiency-based instruction designed to meet the unique strengths, needs, and interests of students who have struggled in traditional schools. Small class sizes and flexibility in course design offer our teachers great opportunities to think critically and creatively about education.
