Deliver incredible results

As a Special Education Teacher at Zeta, you will provide individual and small-group instruction to students who require additional academic support while collaborating with classroom teachers to provide targeted push-in and pull-out lessons. You will partner with teachers, school leaders, families, and the student achievement team to ensure all students are given the resources needed to achieve incredible academic results, on par with or exceeding grade level expectations, utilizing a data-driven approach.  

At Zeta, we wholeheartedly pursue academic mastery in math, reading, writing, and science for all children. Specialist teachers provide additional enrichment in Taekwondo, violin, chess, art, and sports.

Every week, school teams have dedicated time to engage in professional development workshops and mindfulness routines. Throughout the school day, Zeta has an open door policy, where both teachers and school leaders exchange constructive feedback.

Successful teachers are encouraged to step up into leadership roles, with many opportunities for promotion within our organization as we grow. We provide a competitive compensation and benefits package that places a premium on the needs of you and your family. Zeta also provides  top-of-the-line technology and classroom resources.

You are hungry and determined to not only meet your goals, but surpass them at all costs. You are highly skilled at effectively communicating with your team members, both in good times and bad.

We maintain an unrelenting focus on team, so you must be humble, willing to put the team’s needs ahead of your own, and committed to contributing to a collaborative work environment.  

We want lifelong learners who live with child-like joy and passion. At Zeta, we need you to bring your passion for learning, disrupting the status quo, and tackling problems with creative solutions.
