OnTECH Charter High School, a community charter school in Syracuse, New York, is pleased to announce the search for its first cohort of teachers. We are seeking certified teachers to lead interdisciplinary, project-based instruction. New York State certification in English, Mathematics, Science, History and/or Physical Education, and experience teaching in non-traditional educational settings is preferred. OnTECH opens its doors in September 2018 and will have year-round programming.
OnTECH’s goal is to provide individualized instruction in a high school setting that kindles students’ curiosity and promotes knowledge as a path to personal fulfillment and lifelong careers. OnTECH’s uniquely designed curriculum incorporates remediation and project-based learning throughout the academic program to engage nontraditional learners, including those who are over-aged, under-credited and new to the United States. The academic program connects students with industries indigenous to central New York, a region with deep ties to agriculture, agri-business, environmental science and clean power.
To carry out this important work, the OnTECH team is seeking educational innovators. OnTECH teachers will be champions of educational equity and committed to cutting-edge pedagogy, neuroscience and creative ways to meet the needs of all students. OnTECH will employ certified teachers but we can consider applicants who have certification from other states or higher education degrees. We will be providing ongoing professional development in project-based instructional design and ELL methods.
While a year-round school, OnTECH will provide a variety of teachers schedules. In approaching building our program in a framework of human-centered social design, we will look to our teachers to help inform, build and iterate all aspects of our school.
OnTECH is an equal-opportunity employer and the Board of Trustees welcomes inquiries from courageous, compassionate, and creative teachers. If you would like to learn more about these opportunities, please contact with questions or send a cover letter and resume to Ellen Eagen at email@example.com.
