Why Springfield Prep?
Year after year, teachers and staff mention their amazing colleagues as one of the reasons they love working here. We are a mission-driven organization and we believe that the best way to help our scholars reach their full potential is to have a workplace where our teachers, leaders, and staff have the support, resources, and structures to do their best work. We all work together to make our school a place that feels positive, collaborative, and joyful for adults and kids alike.
The academic success of our scholars is a testament to what we can achieve when an extraordinary team of educators works alongside our #SpringfieldPrepFamily to give ALL students the opportunity they deserve.
What makes teaching at Springfield Prep different?
Individualized coaching and support so you’re never on your own and can develop your craft.
Two teachers in every K-4 classroom allows you to teach small groups with a low teacher-student ratio and ensures that you can meet the needs of diverse learners in the general education classroom.
The prep time you deserve as a teacher - Nearly 2 hours of prep time a day, half-day professional development and collaborative planning time every Friday, and multiple “planning” afternoons a year.
An Operations Team, Culture Team, and Student Supports Team to help you focus on instruction.
A commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion so you can be your whole self at work.
A robust curriculum for all subjects and shared lesson planning so you never have to reinvent the wheel and you don’t take all your work home with you
Autonomy to develop curriculum, lead new initiatives, and serve your kids the way you know is best.
All-you-can-drink coffee & tea. :)
