TEACHER RESPONSIBILITIES

 

Values, Expectations, and Commitment - Teachers must commit themselves to their School’s values and mission. Moreover, appreciating the example of excellent schools which succeed at helping all students achieve at a high level, teachers must hold high expectations for each student and commit themselves to helping every student achieve their full potential.

 

Student Learning - Every teacher must accept ultimate responsibility for his or her students achieving learning progress that meets or exceeds their School's high standards and must actively develop solutions to problems, reaching out for peer and leader support, and taking advantage of other school resources, as necessary.

 

Teaching and Assessment - Teachers may make use of school-provided curricular materials, or they may design their own, but they must plan and deliver vibrant and engaging lessons – each with a measureable goal – within the framework of the School’s carefully sequenced, standards-aligned education program. In addition, to effectively target instruction and to ensure that students are scheduled for extra help when needed, teachers must make use of the School’s highly effective formative assessments.

 

Culture and Classroom Management - Teachers must communicate, and also model for their students, behaviors which befit the high expectations culture and the caring school climate to which we are committed. They must apply School and classroom rules consistently and effectively; make use of preventive discipline; and effectively supervise students both in their classroom and elsewhere on School grounds.

 

Teamwork, Professional Relations, and Professional Development -Teachers should see themselves as members of a team and should commit themselves to their own and to their peers’ on-going professional development. Teachers will be required to attend professional development sessions and to become part of a professional learning community where they can lend assistance to, and gain assistance from, their grade-level peers.

 

Special Needs Students and English Language Learners - Teachers must work collaboratively with the school’s special education and ELL staff to implement the school’s special education and ELL supports and to comply with all state and federal regulations.

 

REPORTING AND STAFF RELATIONSHIPS

 

Teachers will report to the Dean of their academy (our Primary, Upper Elementary, Middle School, or High School academy) who will provide considerable supervision and assistance, supported by the academy's Dean of Students, our teacher coaches, and the Head Teachers of each grade level or specialty area.

 

Teachers will be part of a school-wide team that includes many different professionals, but should expect to work particularly closely with their grade-level peers, with whom they will be engaged within professional learning communities, assisting one another to solve problems.

 

TEACHER SUPPORTS

 

Teachers are part of a school-wide team that includes many different professionals and receive career-long coaching and professional development support from their Academy Dean and Dean of Students, their Grade Level or Department Head, and our Coordinator of Special Education.

 

Teachers engage with their grade level peers within professional learning communities (PLCs) where they assist one another in solving problems.

 

Additional teacher supports include:

  • A research-based curriculum and supporting curricular materials (you will have the freedom to develop your own, but after a full day in the classroom, you may appreciate not always having to develop learning objectives and curricular resources from scratch);
  • High-quality formative assessments, aligned with our curriculum, that will help you immediately identify when students in your class have not achieved mastery of a skill, concept, or knowledge item;
  • Full-time reading and math specialists who will be available to tutor students who are struggling to master an essential skill, and social workers who will be available to help students struggling with outside problems;
  • The staffing of our afterschool program by Academic Tutors, so we can limit the length of our teachers’ work-days;
  • Abundant planning periods that provide teachers an opportunity to prepare up-coming lessons during the school day.

 As equal opportunity employers, BelovED and Empowerment Academy hire without consideration to race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.
