Hear from an Impact Teacher!

Are You New to Teaching?

Consider Becoming an Impact Teaching Fellow!
Teaching Fellows work as full-time employees in Impact classrooms where they gain real teaching experience. Impact also supports Teaching Fellows in applying to and paying for a teacher certification program! Once they receive their certification, Fellows can be on track to be promoted to Lead Teacher in our schools.

What We are Looking For

We are looking for people who believe in our mission and values and that all scholars deserve an exceptional educational experience.

Lead Teachers have teaching experience and a track record of strong student results. Lead Teachers hold certification in either Washington or another state.

Teaching Fellows do not need to have any experience working in schools! If you are excited to explore teaching as a career option, we want to talk to you!

School Leaders have experience as either a teacher leader, assistant principal, or principal. School leaders know how to drive their teams to accomplish goals and are masterful culture builders, excellent coaches, and experts in elementary instruction.

School Operations Staff  are highly organized critical thinkers, and have a deep dedication to Impact’s mission.
