General Description

MISSION

CUNY’s Office of K-16 Initiatives creates innovative pathways for young New Yorkers to envision and achieve success by engaging strategic partners in confronting systemic educational inequities.

 

The Early College Initiative at CUNY (ECI)/Affinity create, grow, and support schools committed to early college programs and college readiness outcomes for students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. Through coaching and developing of teachers, leaders, and other partners we are restructuring the educational experience to ensure all students are prepared for success in college and their chosen career path.

The Mathematics School Support Specialist will serve as both a resource to a small group of schools as well as facilitate network-wide workshops for the Affinity Group schools who select CUNY as their Affinity Group. Given that many of the Affinity Group Schools are early-college schools, there is an elevated need for students to be college-ready at an earlier age in such domains as reading, writing, mathematics, speaking, conducting research, problem-solving and critical thinking, and organizing/presenting ideas and work. Specialists will be expected to collaborate with team members and contribute to the overall capacity of the CUNY Affinity Group Team and the larger CUNY Early College Team. As a member of CUNY Early College, the Mathematics School Support Specialist will help shape priorities and be given ample opportunity to support school leaders and in turn, be a leader within the field of mathematics.

Typically, School Support Specialists spend 3-4 days a week in the field, visiting schools, meeting with school leaders, and working with school-based staff. School Support Specialists then create resources, provide feedback to school leaders and staff, and develop and facilitate professional development sessions on their non-field days. Additionally, Specialists will provide contact information (phone and email) to principals and are available to respond to situations(although infrequent) outside of regular work hours.

The Mathematics Specialist will be responsible for:

  • Developing positive working relationships with principals, assistant principals and teacher leaders and working with them to identify school goals, priorities and challenges that focus upon numeracy;
