What is the Role?
Coney Island Prep is looking for an amazing High School , Dance, Movement, or Yoga Teacher to join us for the 2022-2023 school year! Located in the Gravesend neighborhood of Brooklyn, our high school was founded in 2013 and operates grades ninth through twelfth grade. Teachers teach engaging lessons created from the research-based, standards-aligned, curriculum, and these curricula aim to serve as windows and mirrors for our students to help them understand more about the world and themselves. We are looking for a physical education/movement teacher to engage our scholars physically as much as we engage their minds.
What is it like to teach with us? At CIPHS, teachers are afforded the opportunity to teach on a modified block schedule. This means most days are a standard 50-minute class period, but all contents get at least one longer block period in a given week. This allows teachers to get creative with their lessons and take deep dives into content with exploratory lessons, science labs, PE circuits, Socratic Seminars, and other deep intellectual tasks. To prepare adequately for these engaging lessons, teachers at CIPHS can expect about three planning periods in a day, as well as time to collaborate with colleagues on their grade level and within content team meetings. Working together, CIPHS teachers create dynamic and engaging lessons that build scholars' intellectual curiosity and prepare them for college and careers.
What You’ll Be Asked To Do
What You’ll Need
Who are you?
You’re all in. You believe there is no more urgent task than to educate scholars from low-income backgrounds, so you are committed to the core. Our work is high-energy, fast-paced, tiring and sometimes all-consuming, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. You own your work and when you reach your goals, you reach higher. You work incredibly hard, and are inspired by the urgency of what we do. You aren’t afraid to ask for help, feedback, and support; you’re equally eager to give all of the above. You’re driven by personal accountability, data, and results, and you’re not above doing whatever’s asked. You make friends at work, smile through hectic days, and add a little levity along the way. You have the opportunity to work with scholars, and there’s always someone who’s got your back from coaching you through a challenging day to helping you grow professionally. And while the environment can be fast paced and ever-changing, you’ll have all of the technology and caffeine you need to get the job done.
Who are we?
Coney Island Prep is a college preparatory public charter school in Brooklyn, New York. Merging growth, performance, and commitment, the Coney Island Prep community takes its responsibility to prepare scholars for the college and career of their choice very seriously, but not ourselves. We balance our sense of ownership and responsibility with humility and levity and support each other every step of the way. Coney Island Prep currently serves over 1,000 scholars across its four schools, including:
Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Coney Island Prep is committed to building a team that collectively reflects the various backgrounds, experiences, and identities of our scholars. We recognize and respond to different points of access, so that everyone maximizes their highest potential. We also recognize that because of institutionalized racism and systemic oppression, historically marginalized groups are at a disadvantage when it comes to most application and hiring processes. We want to ensure that all candidates, regardless of their identity, are able to demonstrate their qualifications and are not limited by a lack of opportunity or access. We are also committed to creating a space where everyone feels like all aspects of their identity are acknowledged, respected, and welcomed. We are intentional about creating an environment where people feel comfortable being their authentic selves at work by constantly examining our organization culture and challenging our traditions.
Our Response and Responsibilities During the Pandemic
Recognizing how this pandemic disproportionally affects communities of color, we have taken steps to meet our mission in a number of ways. In addition to sharing our blueprint in approaching virtual and distance learning, we have allocated resources for familial support, distributed hundreds of devices to sustain techquity amongst scholars, and provided over 100,000 meals throughout the South Brooklyn neighborhood to date.
As we have navigated our return to school and broader COVID-19 recovery efforts, it is clearer than ever before that having all staff members fully vaccinated is an exceedingly important aspect of protecting the health and safety of our school community. We know that educators city-wide will continue to lead the movement for safe and healthy school communities, and we are excited to be a part of that! To adhere to New York City’s mandate, all Coney Island Prep staff members will be required to be fully vaccinated. If you are not yet vaccinated and looking to do so, we will be more than happy to provide resources to assist in that process.
