Teacher Applicant Resources

Applicant resources


All applications can be found on the Join Our Team page. You will need to upload a resume and answer some informational questions about your experiences and employment preferences.  It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes.

You will get a confirmation email letting you know that we’ve received your application. If any information is missing or incomplete, we will reach out to you via email to request it. If you do not hear from us within two weeks of submitting an application, you should check your spam folder for a missed email.

Written Response

Once a recruiter has read the incoming resumes, candidates who advance will be sent a short answer question. This will help our team to better understand what drives you to work in underserved communities. We look forward to reading your responses. If you do not receive a written response request within two weeks, please check your spam folder for a missed email.

Phone Interview

The second step of the process will be a phone interview with a Rocketship recruiter. We will ask you general interview questions to get to know you better. Feel free to ask us questions about the role and our schools in this stage of the interview process.

In-Person Interview

The last stage of our application process is the in-person interview. Before you attend an in-person interview, we will ask you to submit copies of your unofficial transcripts, credential, credential exams, and references so have copies on hand! The in-person interview is composed of different activities including a visit to our campuses, a demo lesson, and individual and group interviews with parents, staff, and school leaders.  If you are coming from out of town, we will reimburse a portion of your trip, but for best availability book as soon as you get your in-person interview invitation!

Application Deadline

Don’t miss your chance to become a Rocketship teacher or School Leader in San Jose, Milwaukee, Nashville or DC for the 2018-19 school year. We accept applications on a rolling basis but apply early for the best options for grade and content.
