Avondale Meadows Academy

At United Schools of Indianapolis, we believe all children deserve access to high quality educational opportunities. Many neighborhoods in the city of Indianapolis lack excellent school options. Together, we’re providing an equitable education that will ensure our scholars are prepared for college and beyond. We’re looking for mission-driven individuals who are committed to student success.

Avondale Meadows Academy (AMA) is looking for a positive and skilled, knowledgeable special educator dedicated to helping students who have not been successful in the general education setting due to social or emotional difficulties. The candidate we hire will be part of a team, providing coordinated support as well as direct instruction for students with disabilities. The Intensive Intervention Teacher will provide support to students with a wide range of social/emotional needs within a semi-self contained model. Through specialized programming that supports the social and emotional needs of students, the Intensive Intervention Teacher will work to help students build the skills needed to be successful in the general education setting with typically developing peers. Our Special Education Teachers will be responsible for creating Individualized Education Plans that are unique to each student and facilitate Annual Case Reviews.

The ideal candidate for this position will meet the following qualifications:

  • A valid Indiana certification in area of special education with Mild Interventions
  • Experience working with children, especially students who have behavioral disabilities
  • Strong curriculum knowledge and familiarity with literacy development as well as the range of disabilities and conditions that affect learning and how children grow.
  • The instructional and management tools necessary to provide diverse students at varying skill levels with a safe, supportive environment to grow and do their very best work.
  • Experience involving families (parents, grandparents and guardians) as well as the community in support of children’s academic and social development
  •  Excellent writing and overall communication skills
  • A cooperative, energetic disposition and capacity to work in concert with a team.
  • The capacity to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment relentlessly focused on high standards and achieving ambitious goals for our young students.
