Check with seller Front Office Receptionist (2021-22) Jackson

Published date: April 3, 2022
  • Location: Jackson, Mississippi, United States

Who We Are

Serving more than 3,300 scholars in six schools across two cities; Jackson, Mississippi and Nashville, Tennessee, RePublic Schools is the only school network solely dedicated to reimagining public education in the South.

Part of reimagining education in the South means that we confront the historic inequities that work against our scholars and actively work to dismantle those inequities. We are doing this by intentionally creating environments that embrace, honor, and celebrate our scholars' identities and experiences, as well as the identities and experiences of every member of our community.

At RePublic, we cultivate a cohesive community of families, staff, and scholars committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure our scholars succeed. We are looking for a Front Desk Receptionist in Jackson, MS for the 2020-21 school year in one of RePublic's schools (middle or elementary school). Candidates must share our unwavering belief that all children can achieve at high levels and change the world. Sound like you?

Who You Are

Our ideal Front Desk Receptionist has an unwavering belief that our students can achieve at an exceptionally high level. Beyond that, they are:

Leading for Racial Equity - We believe that racism's legacy in education is most entrenched in the South. We look at ourselves first, reflect, and talk about the role racism plays in our lives. We work to be constantly anti-racist in our words and actions.
Deeply committed to serving our kids. Ideally, you have elected to work with historically underserved students, and do this work because you believe that all students, regardless of background, are capable of excellence - and that it's on us as adults to get our kids there. You can speak knowledgeably about our mission, and demonstrate a commitment to our educational model. You understand that educational inequity is more pronounced in the South than anywhere else in the nation, and you want to work with RePublic in part because of our commitment to this region.
Strive for Excellence - We believe achieving excellence is a challenging journey. We maintain high standards and endeavor towards excellence each day.
Knowledgeable about the inner workings of schools and school-based Operations. Ideally, you've got experience teaching or working in operations or administrative roles in schools like ours - or in schools where you felt operational systems kept teachers from teaching and kids from learning.
A detail maven and masterful executor. Your personal organization system ensures you get things done. You sweat the smallest of stuff, and plan fervently backwards to meet timelines, achieve big goals, and manage projects with many moving pieces across a finish line.
Become Better Together - We believe that each member of our community brings a unique and valuable perspective. We honor and celebrate these perspectives, and we know that our differences make us stronger.
A strong, customer service oriented communicator. You want to be a servant leader, and are comfortable in roles where your job is to make it easier for others to do theirs at an exceptionally high level. You communicate clearly in person and in writing, and have a knack for responding deftly to help people to get to resolution when they present you with a challenge or a conflict.
Pursue Growth - We believe that we can and must get better. We constantly seek to both support each other and also improve our work.
A gritty problem-solver. You keep it cool when things are crazy, approach problems with viable solutions, and know when you need to roll up your sleeves to support your team.
A quick and humble learner. You want to move from good to great when it comes to operations execution. You seek feedback and take every opportunity available to learn and grow in your role.
Create Joy - We believe that joy is the undercurrent of the work we do. We choose to see and create the joy that is within us and around us, and we actively work to spread that joy to others.
A serial optimist. You bring positivity to our scholars, their families, and this work that is unparalleled. You believe great things are possible!
