Careers at New Dawn II

Be a part of something greater than you as a founding staff member.


If you are up for a challenge and one of the most rewarding jobs in education, New Dawn Charter High School II may be the place for you. As a transfer school, we serve some of the most at-risk students in NYC those who are over-aged and under-credited. We invite people to apply who are motivated by a challenge and are capable of navigating some of the most challenging learning and instructional issues in the City. If you believe that an equitable education is a human rights issue and that all students deserve a high-quality education, regardless of their learning or social/emotional issues, then this may be the place for you.


Ways in which we are different from traditional schools and benefits:

• You will work with some of the most interesting and deserving students in NYC—those who have been left behind, for a variety of reasons, by more traditional organizations;

• Every day will provide not only challenges but opportunities to reach students and leave you with the knowledge that you have in fact made a difference in someone's life;

• Ongoing daily support for you and unlimited opportunities for professional development;

• A principal who not only teaches a class and allows all teachers to observe while she models behaviors but will come to your class and support you in achieving your individual goals for personal growth;

• Peer Committees made up of teachers who visit each other's classrooms and make suggestions to each other with no administrative input;

• Professional Learning Communities who address school-wide issues;

• A very strong support staff who understand that the point of the school is to provide opportunities to students and that their job is to support this goal;

• A supportive Board of Trustees who understand the challenges of working in a transfer school; and

• Teachers serve on every committee in the school as they are developed;

We are a full year school running on from September through June and then July through mid-August;

• Summer session is only a half day but is necessary for our students to graduate;

• We work from 9 to 5 September through June with an hour at the end of the day for professional development and addressing school-wide issues;

• Instruction is informed by actual data collected by teachers in the classroom and analyzed through the PerfPlus Programs;

• Teachers and staff participate in Instructional Rounds with other schools, this is done by visiting schools, conducting classroom observations and developing problems of practice that impact us all;

• Opportunities to become trained and certified in the Danielson Classroom Observation Rubric; and

• Access to professional developers from TERC Using Data, Danielson, NTN, PCGUS., among others.

Benefits we offer to all staff:

• Competitive salaries;

• A 403B plan for retirement;

• Health, dental, and vision insurance;

• We support staff who wish to learn and develop their own charter applications;

• Opportunities for developing leadership within the school;

• Connecting staff to outside consultants who may be able to help you move your career in the direction you have chosen; and

• A community where you will be heard.

Just like our students, we welcome teachers who do not necessarily fit into a traditional model, are beginning their careers, or who have retired--as long as they are willing to work as a team for the betterment of the students.

We are always looking for new talent. Please send resumes to Dr. Lisa DiGaudio at LDQueens@ndchsbrooklyn.org and we will contact you in the event a new position becomes available.
