Join Our Team
We like to surround ourselves with positive, smart, energetic people with high expectations who love what they do and are super passionate about educating children! If that sounds like you, come join our team!
Step 1: Resumes and Educational Philosophy Submission
If you understand there is an urgent need to elevate public education and want to be a driving force for change, Riverhead Charter School may be your place to shine. We invite you to begin by submitting a resume and an Educational Philosophy Statement. Remember that no application is complete without a cover letter.
Step 2: Phone Interview
Selected applicants will participate in a phone interview with members of the RCS team. We will focus on your previous experience and the content of your resume.
Step 3: Guest Lesson & In Person Interview
After the phone interview, some applicants will be invited to an in-person interview at our schools. We’ll be looking for your ability to lead a 25-45 minute class with a prepared aim and agenda, brief mini-lesson, guided practice, independent practice and “exit ticket” or assessment. We’ll focus on your classroom management instincts, your overall teacher personality and lesson delivery. After the lesson, you’ll reflect with school-based faculty.
Step 4: We Check Your References
We may request three professional references from you post-interview.
Step 5: We Offer You a Position!
If we are interested, we will extend an offer and you will have 1 week to get us a decision, after receiving your formal contract.
