Special Education Teacher (Autism) - Teach Indy

Special Education Teacher (Autism)

Matchbook Learning at Wendell Phillips School 63
Who are we?

After successfully building a school turnaround model in Detroit, Newark and Washington D.C., Matchbook Learning, a non-profit charter management organization, recently moved our team to Indianapolis, Indiana, to launch a single PreK-8 Innovation Charter School in partnership with the Mayor’s Office and Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS).  Our school Matchbook Learning @ Wendell Phillips School 63 is located on the near west side of Indianapolis. Our innovative, award winning blended turnaround school model, the first of its kind in the nation to be offered to schools with the highest poverty rates and needs, has already achieved extraordinary results. Now, we are excited to develop a scalable model for inner city public education in Indianapolis.


Who are we looking for?

As a Matchbook Learning teacher you will be a teacher, a project advisor and a learning facilitator. Matchbook teachers provide targeted small-group instruction, lead whole group discussions, coach students as they work with individualized online learning tools, and collaborate with peers to ensure high levels of student achievement. We believe that ordinary teachers can achieve extraordinary results when their development is personalized and empowered with the aid of technology.


  • An entrepreneurial heart and mindset. Serving in a turnaround or restart school requires both the courageous vision to take on a challenge with massive potential AND the quiet humility to be willing to try, fail and try again.
  • A coachable spirit. Our model is new, innovative and on the cusp of being proven as a powerfully sustainable, scalable way to serve students in low-income, high need schools.  At times you will be a teacher and at times you will be a student.
  • State Standard teaching certification or equivalent out-of-state certificate .
  • Ability to be flexible in a fast-paced, changing environment.
  • At least two years teaching experience in an urban or low income setting.
  • Demonstrated record of success in the classroom (as a classroom teacher preferred, assistant and student teaching evidence considered).
  • Demonstrated understanding of how to effectively analyze student data to guide instruction.


What do we provide?
  • Competitive teaching salaries, excellent benefits, and an innovative, fun, family-like  atmosphere.
  • Over 40 hours of career coaching — you will be professionally mentored and developed.
  • Laptop computer and access to the latest technology.
