[IMMEDIATE] Special Education Teacher- Elementary
About KIPP NYC:
KIPP NYC is a non-profit network of free, public charter schools that prepares students for success in college and life. In 1995 we started our first middle school, KIPP Academy, in the Bronx.  Our goal was to graduate students with the strength of character and academic abilities needed to succeed in high school, college and beyond – and in so doing, to prove what is possible in for all students.  Today, our New York City network is comprised of five elementary schools, five middle schools, one high school, and KIPP Through College, a comprehensive support program for our alumni.  KIPP NYC currently serves more than 6000 students and alumni, has a staff of more than 700 and a budget of over $98M. At full growth, we will serve nearly 6300 students and alumni.
 
All of the KIPP NYC elementary schools are adding a grade each year until they are fully grown schools with grades K-4.  

Duties and Responsibilities:
The Collaborative Team Teaching teacher will co-teach alongside a general education teacher in an inclusion classroom setting to support all students in the classroom. The CTT teacher will co-plan and deliver lessons that incorporate multiple learning modalities, adapt and modify instruction, and create strategies and meaningful interventions to support students’ learning.
                             
KIPP NYC is looking for teachers who combine the ability to motivate and educate, to develop academic as well as character skills, and to make a college preparatory education relevant both now and for the future. 

General responsibilities include (but are not limited to):
  • Teaching a rigorous academic curriculum aligned with New York State standards
  • Teaching students in a high-quality, exciting way
  • Committing to constant professional and personal growth through working closely as part of a team of teachers
  • Constantly assessing student progress, and communicating results to families and colleagues
  • Providing individual or small group instruction for students who need additional assistance
  • Modeling the school’s values in all communications with students, families, and staff
 
Qualifications:
Candidates for this position must have a passion for special education and must be familiar with backwards planning in order to develop the curriculum and differentiation strategies in order to accommodate students with different levels of speaking, reading, listening, and writing skills.
  • Zest, grit, hope, love, social intelligence, gratitude, and a sense of humor J
  • A passion for being part of a team-oriented, mission-driven school culture
  • A strong desire to become a better teacher by joining the KIPP NYC team and family
  • Demonstrated success in raising the achievement levels of traditionally under-served students
  • At least two years of special education teaching experience strongly preferred
