3rd Grade Team Leader/ Instructional Coach at Kuumba Academy Charter School
over 1 year ago
The typical day for an elementary teacher at this school is reporting to pick students up from breakfast at 8:00 and supporting dismissal at 3:45. You would teach a class of approximately 24 students with a varying range of academic and socio-emotional strengths and needs. Part of your job includes individualizing a scripted reading and math curriculum in order to tailor instruction to the needs of your class. As much preparation in the areas of classroom management and community should be given as for academic instruction. You will be provided with a mentor and an instructional coach in order to better your practice as a teacher. You will attend weekly data meetings during your planning period and bi-weekly PLC meetings. After school the work load consists of remaining in communication with student families, using previous day’s data to drive instruction, and planning while group and small group instruction.
