    Seattle Rising

    Seattle might surprise you, we are a city determined to flip the script — to rise to the occasion of dismantling racist systems ... no matter what it takes. This starts with a powerful body of educators that reflect the experiences of our students. You might be a critical part of this mission.

    SPS is looking for the game-changers ... those ready to "DO" - show us what you've got — share your brilliance, your magic, challenge our assumptions, read our strategic plan, bring it and see what we can do together.

    "SPS is willing to have difficult conversations about the inequity of education and how it impacts students of color furthest from educational justice, and to invest in teacher training about ways that we can close the educational divide."



    - Kristie C. Thompson, M.Ed., SC, School Counselor, Nathan Hale High School
