“This is a place where you can be creative and innovative. You can create a role for yourself here.”Mr. Chad, English II Teacher, Mediation Program Co-Coordinator, Teacher Coach, and Theater Program Director, Freire High School
Learning at Freire Schools doesn’t stop when the school day ends—instead, it takes the form of after-school academic centers, sports, and activities. As a Freire Schools teacher, you have the option on build valuable connections with students and peers and earn an additional stipend by becoming a teacher coach, becoming a team leader, or running your own after-school program.
Here are just a few of the ways Freire Schools teachers extend their impact beyond the classroom:
- Academic Center Directors – Responsible for recruiting and leading a team of tutors to provide students with individualized after-school instruction.
- Team Leaders – Coordinate and lead grade-level teachers to achieve ambitious learning goals for students and professional growth goals for teachers. Team leaders lead grade-level meetings and professional development and provide additional coaching and support to teachers.
- Teacher Coaches – Teachers have the opportunity to extend their impact beyond their own classroom through coaching others. These teachers receive professional development on coaching strategies and a reduced teaching schedule to free up time to share their expertise with their colleagues.
