Sela is a Hebrew-English immersion school with a commitment to early literacy and numeracy. Students develop greater literacy skills through the acquisition of two languages. Sela provides a strong foundation for DC youth. Five pillars to which we hold ourselves accountable and that form the basis of our educational program are: academic excellence, diversity, language immersion, financial responsibility and 21st century skills. Sela uses a co-teaching model in grades PK3-1st with English and Hebrew teachers pairing up for instruction. Sela is an academically high-performing school and one of the most improved academic performers among DC charters.
An ideal candidate will value diversity. Sela is a diverse by design school where we believe that students learn best when they are learning with students from different backgrounds than their own. You are committed to being part of a community of learners. We are a young school that is still growing in many ways. There's room for teachers to make their classrooms their own and collaborate with colleagues and school administration.
