Job Description:

_High School SPED (Special Education) Teacher _
New Dawn Charter High School is a transfer high school located in Brooklyn, New York and we are currently looking for a NYSED certified Special Education teacher. As a transfer school, we serve some of the most at-risk students in NYC: those who are over-aged and under-credited.

We invite those who are motivated by a challenge and are capable of navigating some of the most challenging learning and instructional issues in the City to apply. The person we are looking for:
* Is an NYSED certified Special Education teacher (or is working towards certification); and
* Can co-teach and collaborate with the general education teacher in lesson planning
* Develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for each student and implement goals, assess students' performance, and track their progress.

New Dawn is no student's first high school and we do not recruit from 8th grade. The program at New Dawn is specifically designed for those students who are struggling with their education and at risk of dropping out or students who have already dropped out.

The philosophy at New Dawn is based on the belief that all students have a right to an education, even if it takes numerous attempts. Students need support in all areas of their lives and teachers are involved in all aspects, working with the whole student. Teachers will be involved in the governance of the school as well through participation in committees. There will be time daily (along with prep periods) for teachers to work together to develop lesson plans, design assessments, and work on professional development.

Benefits we offer to all staff:

--- Opportunities for a 10 or 12 month contract;

--- A 403B plan for retirement;

--- Health, dental and vision insurance;

--- Opportunities for developing leadership within the school;

--- Connecting staff to outside consultants who may be able to help you move your career in the direction you have chosen; and

--- A community where you will be heard.

Just like our students, we welcome teachers who do not necessarily fit into a traditional model, are beginning their careers, or who have retired--as long as they are willing to work as a team for the betterment of the students.
