Spanish Teacher – 2019/2020 (California Bay Area)
Project Time: Teach two to three 90-minute blocks per day of project time. Most teach one course for the entire gradePersonalized Learning Time: Lead daily literacy or math interventions during personalized learning time, which don’t involve lesson planning.Prep Time: Between teaching blocks, you’ll have prep time which includes meeting with your coach to develop as a teacher-leader, analyzing student data, building lesson plans, supporting school culture, and other personal development activities. This planning requires teachers to consider not only how students are integrating content information into their projects but also how they are applying cognitive skills (e.g. hypothesizing) that stretch across all content areas and the habits of success (e.g. perseverance) that allow them to prepare for the world beyond the classroom.Mentor Time: Meet daily with a mentor group of around 20 students for a quick check-in. One day a week, teachers meet for most of the day with their mentor groups, work on habits of success as a group, and check in one-on-one with their mentees. Mentors coach and advocate for their mentees both inside and outside of the classroom, get to know them deeply and strive to support them as they develop their sense of purpose and become self-directed learners.
