The LEAD Environment

Our Social Studies teachers work relentlessly with their teammates to ensure that all of their students not only are able to enhance their reading abilities by deciphering texts to inquire about historical events while also gaining a broader understanding of the world, but also meet the established Tennessee standards by the end of the year.  This incredible work is done through coaching and support from administration, implementing regular feedback, collaboration with colleagues, data analysis, and working to make sure that students who come in below grade level rise above the challenges they face.   



Successful teachers at LEAD Public Schools are committed to put in the extra effort to ensure that our students have access to a high quality education.  Our teachers persevere through difficult challenges, set goals for our students, and don’t give up.  We ask our teachers to be flexible, hard working, and constantly striving to improve their abilities in the classroom to meet our students’ needs.  We are looking for middle school social studies teachers.
