Founding Teacher- Roles and Responsibilities
5th and 6th Grade
KIPP Miami Overview
KIPP Miami Public Schools seek to create and sustain a high achieving and inspiring community schools that battles inequity by empowering students to develop the skills, character strengths, and habits to thrive in college and beyond, shape their futures, and positively impact the world.
KIPP Miami is building a community of founding 5th and 6th grade educators who are passionate about our vision to see every child for his or her individual strengths and goals and support them on a journey to graduate from college and lead a choice-filled life. We are looking for proactive teacher-leaders who love and respect students, families and their communities.
Our lead teachers are experts in how our individual students learn. They push into classes to support students, and provide input and feedback on how to most effectively work with students. The ESE teachers will pull small groups, and overtime, will become experts in Guided Reading, Wilson, and Level Library Intervention.
In addition to preparing for and teaching lessons, teachers will be expected to build and maintain a strong classroom culture, analyze student data, achieve weekly self-selected “micro-goals” for professional growth, and facilitate student circles to support character growth. To support them in their work, they will have several weeks of summer professional development and ongoing bi-weekly PD and a dedicated coach who will meet with them and provide feedback on a weekly basis. They will also a part of a grade team and will regularly observe, support and learn from their colleagues.
