This place will change your life.
Dean (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 21, 2017
When I started at KIPP 4 years ago, I had the desire to become the best teacher I could be. Little did I know, employment at KIPP would not only prepare me to be an amazing teacher, it changed my life.
As a founding teacher, I had the experience of being part of a team that created a school from the ground up. I felt like I had a voice and that my work was valued. I worked with teachers who I now consider family. In addition, I had the opportunity to be innovative and try new things with support from my School Leader and experienced peers.
I received weekly one-on-one meetings driven by data about my instruction. I was observed and given feedback. I attended PDs on my content and participated in workshops that changed how I taught.
The families we served were supportive and active. There was never a week that went by without food in the teacher's lounge, a positive conversation with a parent, or an invite to a birthday party/soccer game/or other family events.
investment in employees, matching 401K, lots of free clothes and gear
still working towards a work life balance, but every year gets better
