Mirus Academy hires friendly, dynamic, and qualified teachers for high school level core subjects (math, science, English, and social studies).
Mirus Academy is a small school with very low teacher turnover, so open positions do not often occur. There are no open positions for the 2023-2024 school year. However, we may have an opening for an English & Social Studies teacher for the 2024-2025 school year.
Mirus Academy is a unique school, so before applying, please acquaint yourself with our school by browsing our website. To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to Laura@Mirus-Academy.org In your cover letter, please explain why you are interested in teaching at a small private school like Mirus Academy. In your resume, please include all job experience and/or college coursework that relates to the particular teaching position for which you are applying.
About our Students:
Mirus classes are small, with an average of 6 students per class. The students are bright, well-behaved, and highly motivated. We do not accept students with discipline problems, on the autistic spectrum, or in need of curriculum modification. Many have been identified as "Gifted & Talented". Our classes may be mixed-age (small classes may be combined, and gifted students may be placed according to ability rather than age).
About our Teachers:
Our teachers love to teach and enjoy being in the classroom! We seek out teachers who have a love of learning and a gift for teaching, and a four-year college degree is required. Some Mirus teachers are state certified teachers; others are former professionals in their field without teaching certificates. We generally attract part-time teachers that do not desire full-time employment, including individuals who have recently retired, are working another part-time job, or are choosing to be home more often with their family. All instructional materials and lesson plans are provided to teachers before the school year begins. The role of the teacher is to implement the curriculum, facilitate student learning, grade student assignments, maintain positive student-teacher relationships, and communicate with parents and administrators as needed.
About our Work Environment:
Our teachers report that Mirus Academy is a fun, upbeat, and nurturing place to work. They appreciate having classroom autonomy and a friendly work environment, and they are especially glad that Mirus does not participate in STAAR testing. As a result, Mirus Academy experiences high teacher satisfaction and very low teacher turn-over.
About our Salaries:
Because most Mirus teachers are part-time employees, teacher salary is calculated at a rate of $40/hour. Payroll taxes are deducted and a W-2 tax form is provided at the end of the year. A health insurance plan (United Healthcare) is available to full-time staff members.
Mirus Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, national/ethnic origin, religion, sexuality, gender, gender expression, or any protected group in its admissions policies, educational programs, or employment procedures.
