2015-16 Founding Biology Blended Learning Teacher

The Science Blended Learning Teacher will have three primary functions: serving as the primary teacher of biology, leading an advisory of 9th grade students and being a contributing team member to multiple teams.

In the teaching function, the teacher will be responsible for developing, collating and adopting a digital curriculum that is aligned to the College Readiness Standards and Common Core State Standards, as well as the important content standards for their course. Teachers will be responsible for enforcing, with 100% consistency, our school-wide student code of conduct - and, in doing so, create a safe and rigorous learning environment. On a daily, weekly and quarterly basis, the teacher will engage in rigorous data analysis, making informed decisions about student learning to maximize their impact each day. The teacher's primary accountability is towards student learning - making significant gains on the ACT with their students.

In the advisory function, the teacher will be responsible for supporting his/her advisory students to meeting our 6 yearly promotion requirements. As an advisor, this means meeting with students on an individual basis to set goals, develop strategies and discuss setbacks. The advisor is also responsible for building meaningful relationships with both students and parents, serving as the primary interface between family and school. The primary accountability of the advising role is in the students meeting and exceeding their yearly promotion requirements.

In the team function, the teacher will be an active participant and accountable team member. They will engage in lively debates around planning, student learning outcomes and setting a school culture. Teams will be tasked with solving dilemmas as they appear at our school, and team members are the most critical problem-solvers. Team members should neither shy away from conflict nor accountability to results. The primary accountability of a team and its members is measured through student learning outcomes.
