Teaching with KIPP NJ is a unique experience. We strive to build the most kid-focused schools on Earth, where kids run to school every day and teachers feel energized, empowered and heard.
We never give up on kids and believe in the potential of ALL children. Our schools aim to give them the education and tools that enable them to lead choice-filled lives. Help them find their voices, and feel they are both known and loved for who they are.
We approach our relationship with our teachers in the same way.
We encourage your individuality and voice to shine both inside and outside the classroom. You are on the front lines of delivering on our mission every day, nurturing young minds and changing lives. We want to support and grow your passion for teaching and hear your ideas so we can grow together.
KIPP NJ began with a single Newark classroom in 2002. And because of the TEAMS we have built, our schools now reach more than 5,000 children in Newark and Camden.
You could be the next addition to a diverse, talented team that is defining what it means to be a great school in an empowered community.
