WHAT YOU’LL DO

At ReNEW Schools, we expect our teachers to:

  • Use goals to drive instruction. With your manager and team, you will set clear and ambitious short-term and long-term goals to drive your instruction and help your students succeed.
  • Create a culture of learning. You will implement a student-led, positive, and safe classroom and school-wide environment in order to ensure learning is maximized.
  • Be a content expert. You will plan rigorous, engaging, Common Core or GLE-aligned lessons and effectively execute them to ensure all students are working with content aligned to the appropriate standards for their subject and grade.
  • Differentiate for all students. We believe all children can learn, so you will provide necessary accommodations and modifications for the growth and success of all students.
  • Use data all day, every day. You will assess qualitative and quantitative student data in order to draw insightful conclusions from it and adjust instruction as necessary.
  • Reflect. We believe that all teachers can improve in meaningful, measureable, and significant ways through great coaching. To that end, you will view feedback as a tool to improve and will receive instructional coaching to help prepare you and thus, your students, for greater success.
  • Communicate and collaborate. You will be responsible for regularly communicating and collaborating with parents and other staff members to ensure each student is making strong academic and social progress. You will assume shared responsibility for all students’ success.

  • Persevere. You will teach an academically intense curriculum and commit to an extended school day, week, and year in order to prepare our students for success.
