Grow as much as your students.
In Newark, you can build a career, take on new challenges, and earn the recognition and higher compensation you deserve along the way—all without leaving the classroom behind. We offer a range of formal and informal leadership roles for teachers, including:
Model teachers demonstrate high-quality instructional practices across the district, helping their colleagues strengthen their practice. Whether they are videotaping their practice to share with others or visiting other classrooms to provide feedback to their colleagues, our stand-out teachers are our greatest resource for continued growth.
Teacher Coaches offer their colleagues the feedback and coaching they need to make the instructional shifts required by the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. To do this, teacher coaches receive dedicated time for collaboration with teachers in schools across the district and year-long professional development.
