  • Create project-based curricula and performance-based assessment tasks.
  • Use an inquiry-based approach to teach classes.
  • Work in a close-knit team of 5-6 teachers of various disciplines to plan content and language instruction and create a supportive community for our diverse students.  Also, work collaboratively with other teachers to design curricula and assessments and support each other in improving teaching practices.
  • Teach an advisory class that includes community building, identity development, reflective writing, and interest exploration.
  • Participate in developing and implementing new ideas in the school.
  • Develop a curriculum that uses the resources of NYC and helps students to apply their learning in a real-world setting.
