Company: ACE Charter Schools
Location: San Jose
Posted on: September 14, 2018

Job Description:

Join ACE: Where Students Realize Their Extraordinary Potential Since 2008, ACE has operated charter schools serving 5th-12th grade students in East San Jose with one goal: our students will confidently choose to attend and graduate from college. 98% of our graduates will be the first in their family to attend college. ACE is the only charter school in California that strategically recruits students and families that have been left behind by the current education system. With support from the Community Outreach Team, ACE is committed to re-engage families with the ACE school model through grassroots community organizing. As a result, 92% of our students are considered low-income and 50% are classified as English-Learners. 20% of ACE students qualify for Special Education services compared to 10-12% in neighborhood schools. ACE students are considered to be performing below grade-level. At ACE, we understand that growth takes time. It may take multiple years to see the academic performance that will put students on the college-track. ACE is truly a 5th grade through college model and we take time to celebrate growth along the way. After 10 years, the ACE model is beginning to see results. 95% of the ACE High School Class of 2016 have persisted to their 2nd year of college. Many ACE alumni are eager to return to ACE and share their stories with the next generation of ACE student. Position Summary We are looking for exceptional Special Education Teachers to join our team At ACE, we facilitate a push-in model of support for students with disabilities, where the Learning Specialist supports the instruction of the general education teacher. However, we hope to find special education teachers that are eager to move towards a co-teaching model over the next few years. ACE Learning Specialists must collaborate closely with the general education teachers on a weekly basis to discuss student data, instructional practices, accommodations and any extra support that the student may need. You are a patient optimist: you believe that every student is capable of graduating from college regardless of their disability. This position is supervised by the school Principal, Special Education Manager, and Special Education Department Chair. Please note that all Learning Specialist positions for 2018-2019 have been filled at this time. Applications to this post will be reviewed on a rolling basis as new openings become available. Responsibilities Maintain the unwavering belief in the extraordinary potential of every student. Maintain a growth mindset with all stakeholders.

Build authentic relationships with students by serving as a mentor; consistently reinforce the belief that all students have the capacity to be successful through college.

Plan, schedule and facilitate an IEP meeting annually with all stakeholders, as well as provide follow-up to teachers and parents as necessary. Maintain compliant and organized files. Communicate a student's eligibility, goals, and accommodations with all members of the student's team (teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, service providers). Collaborate with teachers, psychologists and counselors to create Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs). Create modified or differentiated homework, classwork, and assessments when necessary. Facilitate students' mastery of academic standards through long-term planning, daily and weekly lesson plans, and execution of rigorous and engaging daily instruction. Collaborate with other ACE Learning Specialists across the network to support a full-inclusion model of Special Education to the greatest extent possible. Create a warm yet firm classroom culture through consistent implementation of behavior ladders. Celebrate student growth as often as possible. Consistently integrate coaching feedback. Approach professional development (training, observations, coaching and feedback) with commitment and reflection. Qualifications Experience: Teaching experience in San Jose or a community of similar demographics. Experience working with diverse student populations, including ELs and students with disabilities. Bilingual in Spanish and English preferred, but not required. Education: Bachelor's Degree Valid California State Teaching Credential or equivalent and transferable teaching license from another state Intern credential accepted We are prepared to consider qualified candidates with the intent to enroll in an intern credential program.
