Adelante Schools is a non-profit school management organization in Indianapolis, Indiana, building a network of outstanding public schools in the city serving families with students in grades K-8. Our mission is to create joyous neighborhood schools, preparing all scholars to graduate from college, and lead lives of leadership and service to Indianapolis. We do this work in unity and solidarity with our families and communities.
Adelante Schools seeks highly motivated, mission-oriented, reflective teachers to serve as Lead Elementary Physical Education Teacher in a turnaround school setting.
We seek teachers who know that all children are capable of excellence, who are committed to continuously improving curriculum and instruction, who are hungry for feedback, and who are always looking for ways to more effectively reach and inspire our students every day in the classroom.
We are looking for teachers who, in close partnership with their principal, grade-level teammates, and many others, are eager to do the heavy lifting of identifying skill gaps in their students and filling them—all while teaching grade-level content and inspiring their students to greatness.
Adelante’s Fitness/Physical Education Teacher is passionate about preparing students to grow into healthy and vigorous adolescents and adults. The Fitness/Physical Education Teacher designs and executes a rigorous curriculum that promotes physical activity, healthy eating habits, sportsmanship, teamwork, and effective learning in the classroom. The curriculum should take full advantage of the school’s gymnasium and athletic field to engage students in a wide variety of sports and activities. The Fitness/Physical Education Teacher also plays a vital role in supporting the school’s academic programming as a pull-out reading teacher. The Fitness/Physical Education Teacher also will start and coach sports teams and facilitate other clubs and activities.
Adelante Schools offers competitive salaries commensurate with experience and a comprehensive benefits package. Aside from extensive professional development, all our staff members are equipped with a laptop computer, email, and all necessary supplies. Adelante Schools believes in the importance of being a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization that enables our students and staff to thrive. We are committed to building a talented team that reflects the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our students. At the same time, we work to ensure an inclusive community by creating a space for important dialogue about issues of race and identity for our staff and students. As an equal opportunity employer, we hire without consideration to race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, or disability.
