4/23 High School Teacher (Chicago)

Posted: Updated:

Pathways In Education schools are a combination of academic recovery, experiential learning, and life and job skills development. This innovative and integrated approach led by caring and knowledgeable staff allows students to reach levels of academic and personal achievement that many, including themselves, may have considered impossible.

Pathways in Education's guided learning school program is an educational alternative for students who have fallen behind or have not found success in the traditional school setting. Our approach to distance learning is rooted in direct instruction through on-on-one mentorship. This approach enables our students to both master curricular knowledge and become inspired to achieve their dreams through education. Within this highly relational approach to distance learning, our students focus on two classes at a time and advance only when mastery of the subject matter is demonstrated. Our students are given the opportunity to matriculate at their own pace towards graduation.

We are currently looking for Teachers to join our growing team.
