We are seeking to hire learning guides (world-class teachers) to support children in our multi-age learning studios serving levels kinder through 8th grade.
What is a Learning Guide?
Learning Guides at Phoenix Modern are first and foremost curious learners themselves. They are world-class, inquiry-based educators who care deeply about children. They inspire, ask probing questions, present challenges, and help students to reflect and hold themselves accountable for their own learning. Additionally, guides actively document and reflect on children’s learning in order to design enriching, engaging and relevant learning experiences that lead to growth and flourishing.
Phoenix Modern is reimagining the design and approach of school. We are an innovative, next-generation learning community that values wonder, love, joy, and growth for children. Our purpose is to support a diverse community of learners in developing the skills, mindset, and character that best prepare them for positive, healthy and productive engagement in the world.
Our instructional approach at Phoenix Modern provides students significant opportunities to play an active role in their own learning and shape the community. In a typical day, students engage in self-paced core skill development using a variety of tools and resources, participate in guided discussions, and immerse themselves in multi-week projects and writing workshops.
Our Primary Studios are prepared for up to 20 learners between the ages of 5 and 8 (kindergarten to second grade). Our Elementary Studios are prepared for up to 25 children ages 8 through 11 (third to fifth grade). Our middle schools studios will serve learners enrolled in 6th - 8th grade.
