Why work at KSS Immersion Schools
Kids Speaking Spanish (KSS) Immersion Schools are dedicated to attracting, developing, rewarding, and retaining a world-class faculty. Our goal is to create a welcoming culture of inclusion and belonging for our internationally diverse community of teachers, administrators, and staff. We place high priority on advances in compensation, benefits, and work climate.
Inclusion, belonging, and team culture
We are enriched by the unique cultures and perspectives of our internationally-diverse, community of teachers, administrators and staff. We work to create a globally-aware community through research, professional development, and conversations with each other about our cultures and languages to offset implicit biases. We seek to create an environment in which each member of our community is welcome as their true self.
Professional development for teachers
We hire teachers with a passion for learning who seek to continuously advance their teaching knowledge and skills. We look for teachers who love working with young children, are fluent Spanish-speakers, and embrace the Spanish-Immersion, emergent curriculum foundation. We provide our teachers with a vast array of professional development opportunities and mentorship from a variety of school leaders. Teachers benefit from our network of international schools which also makes it possible to share innovative and proven teaching strategies across multiple learning communities.
We believe our teachers and staff deserve to be compensated well for the dedication, commitment and care they give our students everyday. Part of that is providing great benefits to enhance our employees well-being and peace of mind. That is why we offer health plans that can cover up to 100% of the employees health premium (depending on program), a 401k retirement plan with up to a 4% match, as well as short and long term disability and life insurance policies at no cost to the employee. To promote mind and body health, take advantage of our Employee Assistance Program and PerkSpot gym discounts!
A great place to live
Whether you work at our Albany, Oakland Montclair, Oakland Lincoln Highlands, Walnut Creek, or San Jose campus, you will be in the hub of the exciting Bay Area.

You will be a short ride to the Pacific Ocean and a day trip to the Sierra Mountains for snow and recreation. Enjoy the temperate California weather and the diversity of cultures that brighten our community.
A shared vision
Our teachers are dedicated to supporting the growth and development of young people with the skills, knowledge and compassion necessary to face and overcome some of our greatest challenges. Our global community will require open-minded and flexible thinkers with the ability to problem solve and strategize through challenges. We share the belief that a multilingual and multicultural education allows our students to make connections across cultures, open doors and break down barriers.
