AMMS is looking for a middle school ELA teacher to help our scholars develop the reading, writing and language skills as well as the social skills and work habits they need to succeed in future years. Our school uses the Amplify Reading curriculum . Teachers work within a team, supporting students through challenging and engaging lessons focused on specific academic skills.
