In 2018, we started a journey to bring world-class educational opportunities to students in Miami. KIPP Miami schools offer students unparalleled opportunities for academic and personal growth and we’re seeking talented educators to join us in empowering the next generation of leaders.
Our educators and leaders are at the heart of what we do, and we invest heavily in their success. Here’s how we do it:
All KIPP Miami teachers participate in ongoing professional development activities throughout the year. Among other opportunities for growth, once a week our scholars dismiss early for the day offering teachers an uninterrupted afternoon to participate in professional development to study curriculum and share best practices across schools.
No one is a bigger fan of our teachers than we are, and we want the world to know what an awesome job they do. A highly competitive starting salary, staff-wide awards ceremonies, an annual gala event and recognitions that can reach up to $10,000 are just a few of the ways we honor our teachers and inspire them to keep being classroom rock stars for our kids.
We want our teachers to have everything they need to grow in their career and become the best educator they can be. First-year teachers undergo weekly observations and are mentored by a veteran all-star to learn the ins and outs of leading their own classes. And every teacher engages in weekly one-on-one meetings to track progress and address challenges as they come.
