Are you aware of the pervasive inequities that exist in high-quality education? Do you want to be a part of a solution? Do you believe all children deserve to receive an education that will allow them to compete on a national and global platform? Do you believe a group of dedicated individuals can make a positive impact on a community? If you answered yes to these questions, join our team!
The Bronx Charter School for Children (BCSC) is seeking exceptional Special Education elementary teachers who are passionate about making a significant impact in the classroom at an established independent charter school in the South Bronx's Mott Haven neighborhood. BCSC offers staff the unique opportunity to work in a school that provides substantial resources and support so that teachers may excel, grow and thrive.
Our Special Education teachers work closely with General Education teachers, and our Special Education Coordinator within an Integrated Co-Teaching (ICT) model to plan targeted interventions for students. Special Education teachers consistently diagnose students in order to provide individual education plans that include differentiation of strategies.
We're different - in important ways - from many other New York City schools. As a standalone school, we're able to focus squarely on our core business - teaching and learning - while preserving our child and family-friendly environment. We're fostering a culture of professional creativity, guided by a new vision for teaching, teacher's roles, and the conditions needed to enable deeper learning for all students. We're able to do this without the distractions and scale-up pressure often associated with a network bureaucracy.
"We work hard but at the end our scholars reap the benefits. I can't imagine teaching anywhere else."
Shameeka Tirado (4th grade Special Education Teacher-13 years at BCSC)
