TEACHING DUTIES SUMMARY: A teacher in a boarding environment like NYMA works collaboratively and enthusiastically with colleagues, administrators, and parents to nurture children and inspire budding leaders in and outside of the classroom. The teacher provides for the safety and well-being of all students at all times, models appropriate and ethical behavior, develops and teaches courses and curriculum, serves as a lead academic advisor to a group of cadets, and assesses student learning both in the classroom and around campus. Through meetings, reports, and other vehicles, the teacher maintains constant communication on both positive and negative developments in the cadet’s academic journey with students, their parents, the student’s advisor, specific teachers of the student as needed and relevant, and with school leadership. The teacher supports the school community through multiple involvement in the life of the school including academic and non-academic programs, academic advising, coaching, leading activities and learning new pedagogical and leadership skills on an ongoing basis. The teacher work schedule is based on the master calendar. In the residential curriculum of the school, teachers serve as the dorm parents of the community, either living in faculty apartments interspersed in the residence halls where structure permits, or living outside of the dorms (either on or off-campus) and working with the Tactical staff on residence life teams attached to specific hallways or sections of the dorms.
