For all the things you need to practice – classroom management, lesson planning, academic feedback – don’t forget there are real children in front of you and you should not need to practice love.
We honor teaching and the immense impact that it will have on the lives of all our children. We are committed to our craft. And in honoring it, we are always working really hard to become better.
For the last three years, we’ve hosted the KIPP NYC Gratitude Celebration. It’s a combination of the Oscars and Nobel Prize Ceremony where we bestow our highest honors upon our most brilliant team members.
The teachers were always there to help me to and through college. That message rang true every single day of my career as a KIPP student, and now I try to show my students I have your back no matter what.
