Working at Aurora
Our Commitment to You
By 2025, Aurora Charter School will provide its staff the leadership and professional development to equip Aurora students with the bilingual/biliterate, cultural, and academic skills to embrace the rich diversity of Minneapolis communities and lead for positive change.
Working at Aurora
Aurora Charter School is a unique dual language program that is designed around the three pillars of dual language education: Bilingualism and Biliteracy, high academic achievement, and socio-cultural competence. We strive to ensure that each child develops strong biliteracy skills, achieves at their highest potential, and develops a socio-cultural competence that helps them develop into noble citizens of our community.
At ACS, we believe our greatest resource is the people who form our team. We aim to hire highly-qualified teachers and support staff who will lead our scholars to success.
"Being a school with a small population, we all have the opportunity to get to know each other. It's great to be able to have personal relationships with the families we serve. It is great to have the opportunity to be part of an environment where the students are nurtured academically, socially, and physically." -- Geraldine Carstens, Second Grade Teacher
"Me gusta trabajar en Aurora porque la comunidad escolar es como una gran familia." -- Francisco Gurrola, SPED Education Assistant
"I completed my student teaching at Aurora, and the thing that brought me back after graduation was the family-like atmosphere. I loved working in a place where the staff all knew each other, and I felt known and heard by administration." -- Nicole Bolduc, ESL Teacher
