About Mastery:


Founded in 2001, Mastery Schools is a public charter network of 24 K-12 schools in Philadelphia and Camden, serving more than 14,000 students.


At Mastery, we're on a mission to provide all students with the academic and personal skills they need to succeed after graduation and pursue their dreams. Student achievement is not just a goal for our organization; it's the reason we exist, and every member of our team is dedicated to securing student success. We are also committed to pursuing equity, actively disrupting systemic racism, and addressing the disparities that limit our students' choices.


Our culture is built on respect, service, and the belief that the success of our students, their families, and the communities we serve will help us achieve our mission. We foster a positive, open, and inclusive environment where honesty, humor, and continuous improvement are celebrated.

This role is eligible for a $5,000 bonus as well as up to $5,000 for relocation expenses.


New-to-Mastery Teachers can expect a starting annual salary of between $60,000-$106,500 based on years' experience and level of education.



The Opportunity:


We are seeking inspired and dynamic educators to join our team and provide a top-quality education for all of our students. As we embark on an exciting new chapter with the launch of our Technology program, we are looking for individuals who are passionate about shaping the future of digital literacy and Computer Science (CS) education. Whether you are starting your teaching career or are looking to launch a new chapter - your passion for technology, your experience, and your commitment to making a difference will be deeply valued. At our school, opportunities for growth and impact are limitless, and we are committed to closing the gap in access to CS for students of color by building a comprehensive K-12 CS pathway.


Your role will be crucial in ensuring students learn the digital literacy skills required for post-secondary success. Through our new Creative Computing course, open to students in grades 9-12, you will have the opportunity to spark interest in CS and encourage students to pursue additional CS courses in the future. This one-semester course covers the foundations of CS, including the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, utilizing the CodeHS curriculum. Your natural talents will be fostered in this innovative environment, and we will provide the training and support to help you become an incredibly effective teacher.


At Mastery we value Continuous Improvement and want you to learn and grow in your craft.
