Position Title: Social Studies Teacher- The School at Marygrove
Department: The School at Marygrove
Salary: DFT Salary Schedule ($51,071 - $82,120)
Bargaining Unit:Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT)
In accordance with the Agreement between the Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT) and the Board of Education of the School District of the City of Detroit, the following vacancy is announced.
The School at Marygrove is a new, one-of-a-kind K-12 institution serving students in the city of Detroit. It is a special collaboration between Detroit Public School Community District and the University of Michigan, housed at the historic Marygrove College Campus. The high school program, entering its fourth year in 2022-23, is particularly designed to introduce students to the scope, rigor, and discipline of design thinking and engineering, and to explore how these and other academic disciplines can be leveraged to solve authentic, complex social problems and to advance justice in Detroit and beyond.
The school is also home to the Teaching School at Marygrove—a unique residency partnership between DPSCD and the University of Michigan to train and support aspiring and early career teachers. Teachers at the school will host aspiring teachers (pre-service interns) as they pursue their teacher certification.
We are looking for successful and innovative teachers that are interested in joining the team of this special school. Applicants must be ready to think creatively about teaching and learning, work hard to support students to solve complex problems and to advance social justice, and care deeply about all students, their families and communities, and the city of Detroit.
