Careers at LEEP Academy

LEEP Dual Language Academy is actively recruiting excellent charter school educators with native-level Spanish fluency. If you've honed your instructional practice and love helping students meet your high expectations -- but you're curious how rigorous instruction and language immersion can work together -- we should talk. 

LEEP Academy opened our doors in August 2019 as the first charter school in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. We use the research-based 90:10 model of Spanish language immersion that helps all students achieve in all subjects while also becoming bilingual and biliterate. In the 2020-21 school year we will grow to serve students in grades K-2, using instructional techniques from high-performing charter schools and the best dual language programs in the nation.

LEEP Academy is led by an experienced board and leadership team, with big ambitions to grow and replicate over time. We make every hiring decision with an eye on future leadership potential.

Our school community is linguistically, racially, and socioeconomically diverse, and we are committed to being a good neighbor in Sunset Park for decades to come. Our school is located at 54th Street and 5th Avenue, in a private building with a long-term lease.

We’re now hiring teachers and associate teachers for the 2020-21 school year, for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. Please see specific job descriptions for detailed requirements. We regret that we cannot respond to every application.

LEEP Dual Language Academy Charter School is committed to a policy of equal treatment for all individuals applying for employment. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, national background, religion/belief, marital status, caregiver status, veteran status, disability, age, political party, or salary history.
