[2020-2021] Special Education Teacher- High 


About KIPP NYC:

KIPP NYC Public Schools is a non-profit network of free, public charter schools that prepares students for success in college and life. In 1995 we started our first middle school, KIPP Academy, in The Bronx.  Our goal was to graduate students with the strength of character and academic abilities needed to succeed in high school, college and beyond – and in so doing, to prove what is possible for all students.  Today, our New York City network is comprised of seven elementary schools, seven middle schools, one high school, and KIPP Through College and Career, a comprehensive support program for our alumni. KIPP NYC Public Schools currently serves more than 6000 students and alumni and has a staff of more than 700. In August 2019, we opened a new elementary and middle school in the Bronx, and in August 2020, we will be opening KIPP’s first intentionally racially and socioeconomically integrated school, KIPP Beyond Middle School!

About KIPP NYC College Prep High School

KIPP NYC College Prep is a free college-preparatory public school serving students from KIPP NYC’s five middle schools. In July 2009, KIPP NYC College Prep opened its doors to its founding 9th grade class. Now fully grown, the high school serves over 1000 students. We have set ambitious goals for our students: 95% will graduate from high school, 85% will matriculate to college, and 75% will graduate from college. Year over year, we have exceeded both our graduation and matriculation goals, and are on track for over 50% of our alumni to graduate from college (5x the national average for low-income students), while continuing to work towards our ultimate 75% college graduation goal for our students.

Duties and Responsibilities:

KIPP NYC Special Education Teachers work closely both as a team and with General Education Teachers in order to plan targeted, high-leverage intervention for their students.  Our Special Education Teachers seek first to diagnose student challenges and then to design individual programs and differentiated strategies in order to meet specific needs. The team serves students with IEPs and diagnosed disabilities, as well as with students who are identified as at-risk.  

General responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Teaching a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that combines the school’s standards and the New York State standards
  • Teaching students in a high-quality, exciting way
  • Using data to drive decisions
  • Committing to constant professional and personal growth through working closely as part of a team of teachers.
  • Constantly assessing student progress, and communicating results to families and colleagues
  • Providing individual or small group instruction for students who need additional assistance
  • Modeling the school’s values in all communications with students, families, and staff
     

Qualifications:

  • Zest, grit, hope, love, social intelligence, gratitude, and a sense of humor 
  • A passion for being part of a team-oriented, mission-driven school culture
  • A strong desire to become a better teacher by joining the KIPP NYC team and family
  • Demonstrated success in raising the achievement levels of traditionally under-served students
  • At least two years of full time lead teaching experience strongly preferred
  • Valid New York State teacher certification in Special Education
