10 Reasons Why You'll Love Teaching at KIPP NYC
51% Character. 49% Academics.
We believe character education is as important to our students’ success as the development of their academic skills. We devote time to our students’ character growth every day and track their progress. Learn more about KIPP NYC and character.
You're Worth It.
We work hard to attract exceptional teachers, we value their work, and believe they should be well compensated. On average, when you work at
KIPP NYC, you’ll earn 20% more than you would in traditional NYC public schools.
We let our teachers teach. We guide, equip, and empower you to do what you do best. We actively encourage innovation and collaboration among colleagues across grade levels, subjects, and schools. Teaching at KIPP NYC means you’re constantly surrounded by a team and family of
educators, but, ultimately you are in control of your classroom.
We're A Team.
Your KIPP NYC colleagues have your back inside and
outside the classroom and they will hold themselves and all students to
the same high expectations you do.
We're A Family.
It’s a rare student who can achieve academic success without strong support at home. Our students’ families are meaningful partners in our
work. Their engagement and support are essential and we work hard to earn it.
Our Focus Is To And Through College.
KIPP NYC support doesn’t stop once students graduate high school. That’s where our KIPP Through College team grabs the baton to provide
guidance, resources, and more. Every day, KTC helps hundreds of KIPP NYC alumni prepare for, succeed in, and graduate from college. Learn
more about KIPP Through College.
You'll Always Be Learning.
We provide individualized instructional coaching, assessment resources, and the best curriculum materials used by successful teachers. Work
here and you’ll be part of a national network of 3,000 KIPP teachers who participate in professional learning communities, leadership
development programs, and extensive resource-sharing.
We Provide The Tools You Need.
Materials and resources bring your ideas to life. Your innovation and imagination are backed by access to the supplies, tools, and educational
technologies you need to support your work and creativity in the classroom.
You'll Make A Difference.
Over the years, our most effective practices and innovations have been
adopted across the KIPP network. Thousands of students, for example,
are using a math curriculum authored by our teachers here in New York
City. It feels great to know that our work makes a difference not only
to our students, but also to many others nationwide.
We Also Play Hard!
Yes, our motto is "Work Hard - Be Nice," but at KIPP NYC - from our talent shows to our class trips and other offsite events and celebrations - we also play as hard as we work!
