Meeting Street School


Meeting Street Schools – Jasper & Beaufort (MSJB) is a pioneering tuition-free public charter school serving Jasper, Beaufort, and Hampton Counties in South Carolina. Founded with a commitment to ensuring that all students have access to high-quality education, regardless of their socio-economic background, we believe in a holistic approach to learning that focuses on the whole child. Our mission is to empower students to reach their full potential and prepare them for a successful future.

The Role

Elementary Lead teachers are certified educators teaching in a PreK, K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th classroom. MSS teachers combine the ability to motivate and educate, to develop academic as well as character skills, and to make a college preparatory education relevant both now and for the future. MSS teachers have a growth mindset and are afforded multiple professional development opportunities throughout the year, including Responsive Classroom training, Eureka Math, Wit and Wisdom, Wilson’s Fundations, collaborative planning sessions, whole and small group school-wide focus professional development, team analysis of performance data and other personalized opportunities for teachers to grow.

In most cases, lead teachers are paired with a co-teacher or fellow teacher. Co-teachers act as co-leads and fellow teachers are newer to the profession and will be mentored by the Lead teacher.
