Part Time Intervention Teacher

School Description: The Odyssey School of Denver’s mission is to teach students how to
learn through a focus on academic achievement, critical thinking and social responsibility.
What makes us different is our commitment to the following key ideas:
● How we learn is as important as what we learn: our students engage in long-term
interdisciplinary units that get them out of the classroom, thinking deeply about
real-world topics.
● High expectations for all learners: all students can succeed, through great instruction
and supporting students to own their learning.
● Living by our commitment to crew and community: we are tight knit community
where we support and push each other to be our best.

Located approximately 3 miles to the east of downtown Denver, the Odyssey School of
Denver is in the ideal location to live out the principles of EL Education while also serving a
diverse community. As one of 152 EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning) schools
nationwide, we have honed our implementation of the model for the past 19 years, enabling
us to earn our EL credentialed school status.
