High-School Level Teacher
CUNY Prep School
Founded in 2003, CUNY Prep’s mission is to develop lifelong learners who have the academic, personal and social skills necessary for higher education. We serve students ages 16-18 who have left traditional high schools, helping them to pass their High School Equivalency Diploma (GED) and move on to success through college. We want our graduates to have access to a greater range of opportunities and go on to become active participants in community and civic affairs.
As members of the CUNY Prep faculty, teachers must be extremely committed and passionate about working with urban youth. They must be highly motivated, self-directed, flexible, reliable, and open to learning new ways of thinking about their practice. CUNY Prep teachers are active participants in creating an engaging, dynamic, and highly effective climate for teaching and learning within the disciplines of Math, Humanities, or Science. Teachers collaborate with colleagues, students, and parents, to develop and support all aspects of the college preparatory program. In addition to academics, teachers are responsible for actively contributing to on-going civic and social events throughout the year. Along with school-wide collaboration, teachers will:
- Facilitate classroom instruction using clear and defined learning objectives.
