Job Opportunities

At King-Chavez Neighborhood of Schools, we truly are a family. We understand the unique demands faced by educators in the 21st century, and make it our priority to ensure that our teachers and support staff feel empowered, supported, valued, respected, and heard. As a TK-12 school system, we are committed to the growth, success, and well-being of every member of our school family! 
We encourage our teachers to express their creativity and passion through innovative curriculum and pedagogy and empower them with on-going professional development opportunities. We recognize the time, energy, and commitment required to obtain a clear CA Teaching Credential and offer two King-Chavez teacher credentialing programs along with individualized support at every step of the way.
As a family, we value building relationships from a foundation of love. Opportunities for collaboration and team building are embedded into the school day and across the school year. Working successfully as a team is important to us, and so is playing and growing as a team!
We understand the growing pressures in education and are committed to combating these by prioritizing the health and wellness of our teachers and support staff. At King-Chavez, we cultivate a healthy work/life balance by providing multiple week-long (or longer) breaks throughout the school year, a comprehensive benefits package that includes mental health support, embedded mindfulness practice during the school day, fun celebratory events, and recognitions.
We invite you to join us in our mission as we educate all students from a foundation of love!
