High School Teaching Opportunities with Achievement First

Achievement First teachers work hard to ensure that all our scholars are on the path to college starting in Kindergarten. We now have two high schools, one in New Haven and one in Brooklyn, that are truly ensuring our scholars receive an excellent education all the way through graduation. During this session, learn what teaching in an Achievement First high school is all about. The session will include information on training, professional development opportunities and how our schools are founding new high school curriculum and programs to ensure a rigorous and well-rounded experience. Pamela Bookbinder will also discuss opportunities for the 2010-2011 school year and our application process.
