The TEAK Fellowship is a ten-year enrichment program that offers New York City students from under-resourced communities intensive after school and summer academic classes, transformational cultural experiences, secondary school, and college guidance, a vibrant internship program, and a robust support system. TEAK students earn admission/financial aid at our Nation’s most prestigious academic institutions and graduate from them determined to make an impact on communities in need of their contributions and leadership.
TEAK’s Summer Institute is its signature experience during the Middle School Academy. The Summer Institute combines rigorous academic coursework with enrichment, guest speakers, mindfulness and academic support courses that both challenge students and spark the intellectual curiosity that propels Fellows toward their goals.
This year Summer Institute will be a hybrid experience with Fellows attending online classes Monday -Thursday and going on outdoor trips on Fridays. The Science Instructor will teach three sections of Lab Sciences, four days a week. Classes are one hour and include three teaching blocks and one lab block weekly. Each section will have approximately 12-14 students. The science teacher will staff weekly office hours and attend all grade level meetings.
TEAK is looking for a science teacher to introduce our rising 9th grade Fellows to basic lab science work similar to the type they will experience at the competitive independent schools many will be attending in the fall. Curriculum should include: scientific method, how to perform experiments, and how to prepare in-depth lab reports. We also seek to improve students’ critical thinking skills as well as their writing and discussion skills to build a strong foundation for the rigorous academic environment of independent high school. Any exploration of Biology, Chemistry and/or Physics is possible.
Please submit a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible with the subject line: “Summer Institute Science Teacher.” Due to volume, only candidates moving forward in the process will be notified.
In addition to an interview, candidates will be asked to submit a course overview and sample lessons and assessments.
