Avenues: The World School is a top-tier school in New York City, offering a truly global education, that will expand to some of the world's leading cities in the next few years. Teaching and learning happens through dual language immersion and challenging interdisciplinary projects. A culture of creativity and collaboration, along with state-of-the-art technology, pervade the school. Brilliant colleagues, with widely diverse experience, create a unique educational experience together. DEEP COLLABORATION, CONSTANT EVOLUTION Collaboration here isn't a buzzword: it's woven into everything we do. Teams of English and Spanish or Chinese teachers share two classes of students, collaborating to nurture their students' social, emotional and academic growth. Teacher teams share responsibility for the curriculum and plan together daily. This intense collaboration is challenging as well as exciting: we're always evolving, learning from each other and seeking to improve. LANGUAGE IMMERSION Avenues students will graduate fluent in a second language and at ease beyond their borders. To this end, in the younger grades, students alternate days between English and Spanish or Chinese classrooms. RESPONSIBILITIES The Avenues Teaching Intern program (A.T.I.) is a one-year on-site teacher preparation program that offers early career educators the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a Lower Division language immersion setting. Interns are assigned teacher mentors in both a 1–2 and a 3–5 setting over the course of the year. Interns collaborate closely with grade-level colleagues in all aspects of classroom life. In addition to their classroom work, interns will participate in weekly intern meetings where they explore issues essential to elementary education and discuss how these issues are playing out in our classrooms. These meetings also offer interns the opportunity to share and reflect upon their experiences, thereby gaining new perspective. Each intern will leave with a portfolio of work that serves as a resource in his/her career, as well as a certificate of completion. In your role, you will: WHAT YOU'LL DO * Collaborate intensively and daily with colleagues to design learning outcomes, monitor growth, and thoughtfully address individual student needs. * Design innovative curriculum that engages all learners in meaningful and challenging work that cultivates real-world problem solving skills and develops social responsibility * Deeply connect with students and colleagues to vigorously uphold a culture of welcome, safety and respect. * Invoke a robust learning atmosphere that leads students to deeply value being at school and feel part of a rigorous and joyful learning community. * Participate actively in ongoing professional learning WHAT YOU BRING * Desire to learn elementary teaching foundations and best practices in an immersion setting * A deep dedication to learning and developing the craft of teaching * A superb ability to collaborate closely with colleagues * A willingness to embrace change and consider new perspectives * Bachelor's degree preferred TO APPLY Apply through the Careers section of the Avenues website (http://www.avenues.org/en/careers/).
