Chavez Schools offers a student focused learning environment, where teachers relentlessly pursue academic excellence in order to prepare students to succeed in competitive colleges.
A pioneer in the education reform movement in Washington DC, Chavez Schools is known for developing teachers into leaders and for empowering our students to be agents of change in the community.
- Our students are known for their appearances on Capitol Hill and in other halls of power around town.
- Our graduates are found working in Fortune 500 companies, returning to us as teachers and staff and on our Board of Directors.
- Our former teachers are working in our network and across the city as Master Teachers, Coaches, APs and Principals.
We are looking for passionate and dedicated educators with a Bachelor’s degree and at least three years teaching experience, preferably in an urban setting.
Successful Chavez teachers are:
PERSISTENT, COLLABORATIVE, PROFESSIONAL, ADAPTABLE
As a teacher at Chavez I am inspired daily by my colleagues and students to be "Great by Choice" just like our namesake Cesar Chavez. It is also refreshing to know that there is a positive community built around high expectations set in place to assist in the cultivation of my personal and professional development.
