Choice is Freedom!  At ReNEW, we ensure that students are academically and emotionally prepared to access the full range of life choices that are the fundamental right of every child in the city.

At ReNEW Accelerated High School, we advocate for the fundamental freedom to determine the course of our own lives. By designing customizable learning paths that advance depth of knowledge, we develop everyone's ability to critically analyze challenging concepts without fear of failure. By building our ability to make well-reasoned and compassionate choices, we transform every interaction into an opportunity to advance our collective empowerment. We renew our commitment to innovate solutions to difficult problems. We renew our commitment to create a customized path rooted in the needs of each student. We renew our commitment to show love for each other and our communities.

WHAT YOU'LL DO
At ReNEW Schools, we expect our teachers to:
  • Use goals to drive instruction. With your manager and team, you will set clear and ambitious short-term and long-term goals to drive your instruction and help your students succeed.
  • Create a culture of learning. You will implement a student-led, positive, and safe classroom and school-wide environment in order to ensure learning is maximized.
  • Be a content expert. You will plan rigorous, engaging, Common Core or GLE-aligned lessons and effectively execute them to ensure all students are working with content aligned to the appropriate standards for their subject and grade.
  • Differentiate for all students. We believe all children can learn, so you will provide necessary accommodations and modifications for the growth and success of all students.
  • Use data all day, every day. You will assess qualitative and quantitative student data in order to draw insightful conclusions from it and adjust instruction as necessary.
  • Reflect. We believe that all teachers can improve in meaningful, measureable, and significant ways through great coaching. To that end, you will view feedback as a tool to improve and will receive instructional coaching to help prepare you and thus, your students, for greater success.
  • Communicate and collaborate. You will be responsible for regularly communicating and collaborating with parents and other staff members to ensure each student is making strong academic and social progress. You will assume shared responsibility for all students’ success.
  • Be flexible and innovative: As we are a turnaround organization, you will be flexible in ensuring the strategies you implement best meet students’ needs, and if not, adjust course. You will help invent, refine, and imagine practices and policies to successfully meet all our students’ needs.
  • Persevere. You will teach an academically intense curriculum and commit to an extended school day, week, and year in order to prepare our students for success.
  • Be a constant learner. You will regularly participate in school-wide and network-wide professional development and will be solutions-oriented.
  • Celebrate. You will approach your work with joy and enthusiasm for the impact you will have on our community and students.

  • Bachelor’s degree (required)
