High School PE Teacher
Compass Rose teachers are passionate innovators. They believe in the power of an excellent education to change the lives of students, and they desperately want to build a game-changing school that redefines public education in the city of San Antonio, the state of Texas, and across the country. They know how critically important it is to develop a classroom culture that drives student achievement and personal growth for each individual child. Compass Rose teachers will teach students to hold themselves to high expectations, both academically and behaviorally, and they tirelessly support students when they fall short of those expectations. Our teachers are hungry to grow as leaders in this work every day, driven by personal reflection, coaching from school leadership, and partnerships with transformational colleagues. They understand founding an excellent school will be personally and intellectually exhausting. It will push us to our professional limits. It will ask more of us than we thought we had to give. But they also know we will all be part of something that is worthy, desperately needed, and surely possible for thousands of students in our city.
Compass Rose is a brand new public charter school. We are deeply committed to helping all students live up to their power and potential through a rigorous college-preparatory education infused with a unique curriculum in entrepreneurship and innovation. The result is a school that is uniquely suited to educate all students across San Antonio. In 2019-2020, we will serve grade 6–9, and we will expand by one grade level each year until we are a full 6-12 campus.
Our approach to building a great school is based on four foundational beliefs:
