People’s Prep is dedicated to preparing all its students to get to and through the college of their choice. We understand that for this to happen, we need dedicated teachers and staff members who are committed to closing the achievement gap through hard work. We believe that teachers have one of the most challenging but also most rewarding jobs ever. Here at People’s Prep, we strive to support our teachers and to help them to continually improve their teaching practice.
We know that great teachers stay in great schools when they are supported and develop; therefore we have clearly articulated paths to teacher leadership. Currently, over a third of all People’s Prep teachers hold leadership roles within the school.
At People’s Prep, we consider teaching as an extreme sport. That’s why we search the entire country to find individuals who best embody the commitment, energy, and heart to excel in our classrooms. Our teachers and staff are selfless and self-reflective. They’re driven, yet humble. They love teaching and the students they teach, and they know that love needs to come with no strings attached. Teachers who want to work at People’s Prep should expect the job to be challenging—and they should also expect feedback, collaboration, and support from teammates and School Leaders in order to help them meet those challenges.
