Chester A. Arthur Elementary School is seeking a dynamic educator to join the team at 2000 Catharine St (Graduate Hospital neighborhood) to teach students in grades 6 through 8 both Science and Social Studies. We are a small school of 265 students with an active HSA, incredible community group (Friends of Chester Arthur), chromebooks for each of the middle school students, a brand new green schoolyard, and a parking lot. If you are interested but only have one of the two certifications, our community group will pay for your Praxis exam to add the additional certification. If you are interested or have any questions, please email our principal, Kim Newman, at kinewmanATphilasd.org
