Why Breakthrough?

A lot has been happening in Cleveland over the last 5 years, and the momentum is really exciting. There’s never been a better time than now to join this growing group of talented, passionate teachers, leaders, and staff members who are working together day in and day out to change the face of education in Cleveland.

We know our ability to provide transformational experiences to our students and families depends on the quality of staff. We continue to rate as the highest charter network in Cleveland because we offer a compelling array of supports and recognitions, including intensive professional development, coaching, career growth opportunities, and performance-based compensation. Our staff members, in turn, feel empowered and prepared to deliver on their promise of providing a world-class education to our students. We invite you to discover the many benefits of working at Breakthrough.

We truly value the teachers, leaders, and staff who make it possible to provide an outstanding education to our students each year. Compensation packages are competitive and commensurate with experience. We offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes paid time off, short and long term disability, life insurance and medical, dental, and vision coverages. Employees also participate in the Ohio STRS or SERS (state retirement system).

We embrace diversity and the power of inclusion

We believe that a diverse, inclusive learning environment fosters success in educational achievement and performance outcomes, drives innovative thinking, enhances our service to stakeholders, and fosters a workplace where all employees, students and families are respected and valued. We are committed to pursuing the goal of a culturally competent workforce that is reflective of and/or sensitive to the communities we serve.

We’re on our way to serving 5,000+ students across Cleveland. We’re looking for people like you to help us get there. Passionate, smart, motivated, driven, and hard-working educators, managers, and leaders who care a ton about kids.
