Apply.

To apply, submit all of the following in pdf format (preferably in one document, if possible) to teach@cristoreymilwaukee.org. Include the position in the subject line of your email (e.g, Faculty: History).

  • Resume
  • Cover letter
  • Contact information for three professional references (name, position, email address, and phone number)
  • Undergraduate and graduate (where appropriate) transcripts
  • Responses (maximum 500 words per response) to the three following questions:

 

  1. We are a growing team of stellar educators who work tirelessly to maintain high expectations for all students and ensure their learning and development.  We nurture a mission-driven culture that enables growth through reflection, feedback, and transparency.  Our team members are characterized by dedication and resilience, openness and flexibility, love and joy.  We seek individuals who are not afraid to fail, who do not whine, and who put in the hard work that makes otherwise unachievable dreams truly possible for our students. We challenge ourselves and our students to constantly learn, to believe, to lead, and to serve.  Why should you be part of this team?

 

  1. Name two characteristics that you embody as a teacher and that you consider central to your success.  Then provide specific examples of how you manifest these characteristics in your instruction, and explain why they are so important to great teaching.

 

  1. Many high school students confront an urgent, double challenge: they struggle with reading comprehension and they have acquired less of the academic vocabulary and core knowledge—in science, history, civics, the arts, etc.—that are critical to their success.  These two challenges are reciprocal; difficulty with reading comprehension limits students’ ability to gain new knowledge and vocabulary, and limited vocabulary and core knowledge hinder reading comprehension.  As a teacher in a college-prep high school with students facing this challenge, how would (or do) you address it?
