Our Hiring Process: Independence Mission Schools (IMS) values finding a great match between teaching applicants and our 15 unique schools.

As new vacancies arise, we will continue to share your information with school leaders so that we can find you the perfect teaching home.
*Please note that this is a general pool job posting; any applications submitted here will be considered for any current and future openings within the network (based on your regional and grade preferences). If you are highly interested in a school-specific posting (i.e. “Grade 3 at IMS School”), please submit an application to the school-specific posting to let us know of your interest. There is no limit on the number of applications you can submit.
