Our teachers are our No. 1 resource to support our students.
It’s not the fancy curriculum, state-of-the art technology or the latest innovative teaching tool – although we have all that, too. Students love their teachers, and we know our teachers love their students.
RPS 205 teachers are the best of the best. Every year our teaching staff wins Golden Apple Awards for excellence in education, presents at national conferences and attends professional development to continue to improve their craft. That’s because we invest in our staff. Teachers have opportunities for leadership, growth and responsibility without leaving the classroom or losing their connection with students.
RPS 205 offers teachers one of the strongest total compensation packages in Illinois. Teachers can earn more through programs and incentives:
Multi-Classroom Leaders earn an additional $9,315 each academic year by working with teachers to set and exceed student achievement goals.
Coaches and club liaisons earn stipends by helping students explore interests outside the classroom. First year head coaches earn an average of $4,600.
Our teachers’ dedication and commitment, combined with passion, knowledge and experience drive students to achieve and become lifelong learners. Consider joining us in RPS 205: the best of the best.
