Classical Charter Schools

Learning Specialist

June - October 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

High expectations for students led to mastery of New York State standards for many. Work making a real difference in the lives of great kids. Good benefits offered.

What I wish was different

Transparency in the hiring process regarding strict, specific teaching and management practices. Better work-life balance. Clearer communication about job roles and responsibilities. Improved treatment of students; more respect, kindness, empathy.

Advice

This experience taught me a lot about the kind of educator I am and want to be. It put my personal teaching philosophy into clearer focus, as well as how important a healthy work-life balance is. If you’re considering taking a job at Classical: ask LOTS of questions and trust your gut.
