Resident interns share a kitchen and living area, and are provided with their own bedroom.

Who We Are

Longview School
is like no other.

While Longview School certainly has a rigorous pre-K through 12th grade academic program, what makes Longview unique is our supportive community where each student knows and is known by every teacher. In our small classes (3-10 students), teachers make the curriculum relevant by connecting their subjects to the students' lives. Combined with a hands-on educational approach, this inspires students to love learning. Beyond academics, Longview empowers students to become independent and responsible as they participate in our democratically-governed school with a student-led judicial system. Longview's focus on educating the whole child, academically and personally, gives our graduates an undeniable advantage as they transition to college.

The above is what we say about the school, but Longview is of course much more. It is a place created by teachers who were successful in traditional academic settings, but who believe that education is not filling students' heads with information, but is about learning to become successful adults. For us, success is measured first and foremost by being able to lead happy lives. Not the sort of happiness that comes with seeming perfection on the outside while there is endless turmoil on the inside. No, the kind of happiness that comes from people knowing themselves well enough to be able to guide their lives towards happiness. The kind of happiness that comes when people have learned the skills to have some control over themselves and their world, having tested their mettle in a safe, supportive environment so that they leave school ready to face what comes next. The kind of happiness possessed by people who have learned independence and responsibility, at the same time that they have learned how to form meaningful and supportive relationships with peers and teachers. If this is the sort of school you want not only to be a part of, but to have an active role in helping to create, then maybe we have a place for you.

Longview combines aspects of the Sudbury School model with more traditional academic education. So how does that work?

We have 2 educational tracks: the Sudbury track and the Academic track. Each family--parents and kids together--chooses which track is right for the child. On the Academic track, students take classes in English, math, science and social studies, in addition to electives. On the Sudbury track, students are able to choose how to fill their time at school. They can take as many or as few classes as they choose, or help to create classes in areas of their special interests. Although the classes cover fairly traditional content, there is a constant focus on hands-on learning and making the material relevant to students' lives.

Regardless of their track, all students participate in the other aspects of a Sudbury education, which include participation in:

-a truly democratic school (run by School Meeting in which every student and each staff member get one vote);
-a student-run judicial system to resolve conflicts among all community members;
-a system of clerkship jobs in which students share in the real-world work of running and maintaining a school;
-an internship system placing kids in real job settings;
-a student-run chore system in which students take responsibility for keeping the school neat each day.

To learn more about our school, check out our website at www.longviewschool.org.


What We Need

We are looking for an intern who is truly excited by our innovative model and who is nearly bursting with passion for democratic education. The right person should have knowledge and skills in at least one of the following areas: Computer Science, ESL, Writing, Math.

Candidates might include

-a young person who is not sure what to do in life, but knows that s/he has a lot to give;
-a person with real-life skills who wants to apply her/hisknowledge through teaching;
-someone who is new to teaching and can't imagine working in a traditional school;
-a parent who is unwilling to send her/his child(ren) to public school and wants to be a part of their education;
-someone retired from teaching who can't stay away from education but won't stand for any other place than a school in which the kids are empowered;
-someone who is uniquely qualified for reasons we haven't yet considered.

Team players are a must, as we all wear many hats.

What We're Offering

Compensation will include some of the below depending on the particular circumstances of each candidate:

1) A monthly stipend ($500 to $1,000);

2) Housing near the school;

3) A barter arrangement for being able to enroll a child/children in the school;

4) The possibility of greater employment in future school years.


How to apply

Look over our website (www.longviewschool.org). Watch the videos in our Guided Introduction. Then write a letter of interest. Send in your letter and resume by email to info@longviewschool.org or by mail to Longview School, 83 Main Street, Brewster, NY 10509.

Are you a passionate, and talented teacher?
Do you love working in urban schools?
Are you looking for a high school culture that strikes the perfect balance of structure and freedom, where academic rigor drives all other aspects of school life, and where positive reinforcement for hard work and effort is the norm?
Do you constantly strive to improve your craft through coaching, incorporation of data, and whatever other resources you can find?
Do you thrive in the company of equally committed, driven, and gifted teachers?

Math, Engineering, and Science Academy (MESA) Charter High School is a new high school in Bushwick, Brooklyn. On August 19, 2013, we opened our doors, and we now have 250 students in grades 9-10. Our students come from more than forty different middle schools, including public, parochial, and charter schools. Some are advanced students coming from magnet schools; others are beginning English Language Learners. What they all have in common is a desire to succeed. MESA students come to school every day, ready to work—we have a 95% attendance rate and a 96% punctuality rate, both significantly higher than other high schools in our district! In our first year, 90% of MESA students passed their Science and Math Regents exams, compared to a 50% pass rate in our local school district.

Some key aspects of MESA's design are:

Smart teaching—MESA uses a Standards-Referenced Grading system, which makes data understandable and accessible. This enables teachers to create targeted, focused instruction, and helps students understand and track their own progress. MESA teachers love data (or at least aren't afraid of it!).
Smart support—MESA teachers have a minimum of rote administrative duties in order to better focus on planning, instruction, and assessment. Teachers receive ongoing coaching and feedback. MESA is committed to collaboratively developing and growing its teachers. Dedicated time for professional development and collaborative planning is built into the calendar.
Smart scheduling—MESA's school day starts and ends later than most DOE schools, as research indicates that a late start helps high-school students succeed.
Smart culture—MESA provides students with a separate effort grade each week, which will lead to rewards for students. MESA also emphasizes positive reinforcement for student effort and performance. All MESA teachers lead an Advisory, and serve as Advisor to 10-13 students.
Smart relationships—MESA believes that all parents want their children to succeed, and enlists them as partners through phone calls, workshops, and frequent contact. More than 85% of MESA parents attended parent-teacher conferences, a number generally unheard of in unscreened urban high schools
Smart calendar—MESA's calendar has187 days of instruction, as well asdedicated PD and grading days. MESA's calendar and earlier start allow for "Intersession," during which students receive enrichment, skill remediation, or Regents preparation.

Specific Responsibilities

Design and teach five periods of English Language Arts each day (two periods daily of prep time). Utilize Universal Design for Learning method of planning and instruction to reach all learners.
Build relationships with all students. MESA teachers believe that rapport is key to student engagement and motivation.
Attend, participate in, and facilitate team meetings and professional development opportunities, as well as common planning times. MESA believes that good professional development is interactive, practical, and teacher-driven.
Communicate regularly with parents about both positive and negative interactions with students, making a minimum of two positive contacts (phone, email, or text message) with parents per week.
Hold office hours before or after school, twice per week, to provide extra help and opportunities for re-assesment.
Teach one week of Intersession enrichment program based on teacher interest (additional stipend provided).
Maintain duties as Advisor.
Other duties, as assigned by the Principal.

Qualifications: (1) Minimum Bachelor's degree in subject area to be taught, Master's Degree preferred; (2) Minimum of three years teaching experience in an urban public high school or charter school setting, or similar background; (3) Proven track-record of high achievement in the classroom and commitment to accountability; (4) Belief in and alignment with MESA's core beliefs and educational philosophy; (5) Valid New York State Certification strongly preferred; (6) Spanish-speaker a plus.

Salary: Highly competitive, commensurate with experience.


How to apply

Please email your resume and cover letter to Arthur Samuels, Executive Director, at asamuels@mesacharter.org with the subject heading "Writing Teacher." Cover letter should specifically indicate why you want to work at MESA. APPLY BY EMAIL ONLY.
