join the revolution

Teaching as part of a democratic community is incredibly satisfying.

Why work with us?

Rediscover teaching

This is how teaching should be; creative, satisfying, enriching for all. No repetition of boring old material.

Small classes

A maximum of 14 students in each classroom, means that you're able to get to know your students well and have meaningful student/teacher interactions.

No petty rules/paperwork

Seriously, nobody wants that.

Mindfulness

Yoga and meditation are embedded into our curriculum so that coming to work feels good. What other workplace pays you to meditate?

Feel free to be yourself

Bring your whole self to the classroom. Your creativity, personality, quirks and foibles are all welcome.

Support & Collaboration

Plenty of training, support and collaborative practices are built into our culture.

We're moving towards self-management

We believe this is the most fulfilling way for people to work together. It’s a learning process for us and so will take some time.  Self-managed organizations are often referred to as Teal organizations. Self-management comes about through a combination of innovative structures and processes and are described in more detail here, but a few are highlighted here:

autonomous teams

The most common structure of Teal organizations are interdependent networks of small, autonomous teams. These consist primarily of small teams, of people that self-organize and are not under the authority of anyone outside the team.

no bosses or organization charts

There are no fixed hierarchies of authority in Teal organizations. There are no bosses within or outside of the teams. The primacy of the boss-subordinate relationship is replaced with peer-based mutual commitments. Decision rights and power flow to any individual who has the expertise, interest, or willingness to step in and contribute to a situation. Fluid, natural hierarchies replace the fixed power hierarchies of the traditional pyramid – leaving the organization without an organizational chart. 

No job descriptions or job titles

There are typically no job descriptions or job titles in Teal organizations. Rather each individual has a number of roles that he/she has agreed to and committed to fulfill. When someone senses an issue or an opportunity that calls for a new role, someone simply steps forward and offers to take on that role. 

Distributed Decision Making

Decision-making is highly distributed. Decisions do not need to be validated by the hierarchy nor by consensus of the community. Any person can make any decision after seeking advice from 1) everyone who will be meaningfully affected, and 2) people with expertise in the matter. 

open information flow

Everybody is given access to all information at the same time. 

conflict resolution

Disagreements are resolved among peers using a well defined conflict resolution process. Peers hold each other accountable for their mutual commitments.
