If you walk around the campus of Verbum Dei Jesuit, you will quickly get the feeling that something special is happening here in South Central Los Angeles. You will find our teachers, administrators, and staff view their jobs at Verbum Dei Jesuit not as careers, but as callings.
We are an innovative, dynamic, and mission-based high school bound by a common goal: to inspire and prepare students of limited economic resources to succeed in college and lead their communities as compassionate, committed, and competent men for others for the greater glory of God.
We are looking for data-driven enthusiastic individuals who desire to work in an organization committed to providing a life-changing education to the young men of Watts and surrounding neighborhoods.
Why work at Verbum Dei Jesuit?
I started working at Verbum Dei High School in the fall of 2019 and instantly fell in love. The Jesuit values of educating the whole person and exploring the service of faith and promotion of justice are what initially attracted me to the school, but then I met the empathetic, intelligent, hardworking and hilarious staff. The moment that I walked onto campus, I knew that I was a part of a family that was going to support me and help me flourish professionally! On top of all of that, there are the students! The students at Verbum Dei are resilient, smart, funny, leaders that will end up running the world one day and consistently make me proud to have played a small role in their formation.

I began working at Verb when I was about 33 years old, looking for a school to call my own, to set down some roots and become part of the school culture. I thought of Verb as perhaps my launching point, not my home but 17 years later here I am. I have students who have married, have begun families of their own, who I stay in contact with, parents who I still speak to. I have set my roots deep and become another member of an entire community in ways I never expected. Why did I stay? Because as I grew as a teacher this school was growing along with me. I have been part of the team that created a mission statement that has lasted, helped create a curriculum that is skill based, have been loved and nurtured as my students have been loved and nurtured. Verb is my home and all of the people here are my family.Kirsten Hochman, Teacher
