Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Mission Grammar School is an urban, college prep Catholic School dedicated to reaching individual excellence in a faith-based community rooted in Gospel values.
The strength of a school is in its community. Families, administration, faculty, staff, and scholars work in partnership to accomplish and strengthen academic and social success.
Our champion teachers must possess:
1. A Belief in a Child’s Innate Brilliance
Champion teachers believe that every person is born with innate brilliance; it is not the job of a teacher to make a child brilliant. Instead, it is our responsibility to foster the scholars’ unique brilliances, encourage our scholars to see themselves as brilliant, and help our scholars’ brilliance continue to grow through rigorous and relevant academic work.
2. Social and Emotional Learning
Champion teachers believe in the growth and learning of the whole child, and recognize the importance of social and emotional learning in the classroom. Champion teachers believe and carry out the practices of the Responsive Classroom pedagogy.
3. Rigorous planning and instruction
Champion teachers engage and challenge students to think and conceptualize. Mission Grammar Teachers will plan with units aligned to Common Core standards and deliver instruction with tenacious focus on rigor and engagement.
4. Individualized Feedback
Champion teachers assess their students frequently and follow-up with individualized feedback and support. Mission Grammar teachers AND scholars will receive prompt and frequent feedback on their performance, emphasizing a Growth Mindset.
At Mission Grammar, we are proud to offer employees a team-oriented culture. Our staff and faculty are dedicated to our scholars and their education. We highly value our employees and continuously work to provide professional development and support at all levels. Join us in our efforts and experience a fulfilling career with an honorable purpose.
We believe that teacher quality is the single most important factor in Scholar Success!
