Job Description:
Cottonwood Valley Charter School in Socorro, NM seeks a full-time elementary teacher for the 2022-23 school year.

CVCS is a 170-student K-8 program started by a group of local parents in 2001, who wanted a different educational opportunity for their children.  The mission of CVCS is as follows: 

"Cottonwood Valley Charter School offers a rigorous academic program designed to meet the individual needs of each student both indoors and out, together and independently, with an emphasis on STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) using the most current teaching practices in math and science while integrating social studies and arts content from the Core Knowledge Curriculum. We believe the arts are essential contributors to the student’s education for balance and deep understandings. They also provide opportunities for creativity in the sciences, allowing the pursuit of science to be imaginative and open to all skill levels. Through community engagement, CVCS students will understand their effects on the world around them and the importance of contributing to it resulting in positive change. This is reinforced by parent and community voluntarism as examples of creating impactful change. The School offers the community a parent-driven public school choice in which teachers, students, and parents are partners."

This is an incredible opportunity for the right person, as we are a small school with a supportive group of families and external community partners.  Our students and families are thrilled to be at our school and we have a waiting list of over 200 students. You can read more about our school at our website: or find us on Facebook.

A $2,000 signing bonus, payable at the successful completion of the 2022-23 contract, will be awarded to the candidate we select for this position as well, prorated if starting after our first report date for staff.
