Job Description

If you are a highly motivated teacher wanting to implement our fun and rigorous academic program, we invite you to apply for this teaching position.

Elementary teachers are responsible for collaborative lesson planning, classroom instruction, student discipline, after-school activity sponsorship and school-to-home communications.

Pay is commensurate with experience and qualifications. A competitive benefits package is included.

Qualified applicants will hold a current Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 Utah Professional Educator License with an “Elementary: K-6”, “Elementary: 1-8”, or “Early Childhood: K-3” Area of Concentration. Teachers who hold endorsements to teach multiple subjects are strongly encouraged to apply. An ideal candidate is willing to learn Spanish and American Sign Language, is familiar with the Utah State Core Curriculum for first through fifth grades, and embodies the philosophy that children should both have fun at school and be academically challenged.

It is essential that interested applicants be committed to a collaborative, co-teaching model in an inquiry-based and technology focused educational program graded on a standards/outcome based grading system. Before you apply to join our outstanding faculty, you should read the Quail Run charter (available on our website: and be eager to implement this unique approach to education. You must genuinely like elementary age students to be successful in this position.

Can you demonstrate the ability to:
• Write lesson plans that align with our charter;
• Effectively manage student behavior;

• Create and utilize outcome based assessments (formative and summative);
• Encourage excellence from all students via differentiated learning; and
• Work successfully in partnership with other stakeholders including board trustees, school administrators, co-teachers, paraeducators and parent volunteers?

If you are a dedicated teacher who can turn a concept into a real-life application and a lesson plan into an adventure, then our 600 eager students and 45 team members are waiting for you:
