Careers at Capitol Collegiate
At Capitol Collegiate, we work to ensure our teachers are treated professionally and get the support they need to succeed. Each teacher meets frequently with an instructional leader to ensure his/her own professional growth. In addition, Capitol Collegiate knows this work is incredibly hard. While we will never sacrifice high quality instruction, we are continually looking for ways to make this work more sustainable for our teachers.
You wouldn’t go on a road trip without first mapping out where you’re headed. Thoughtful and comprehensive lesson and unit planning does the same thing for teaching. Across all subject areas, teachers have regular planning meetings with instructional leaders, helping them prepare for upcoming lessons and anticipate problems before they occur. Weekly professional development sessions further help teachers ensure that they are consistently improving their planning abilities.
Prepare: Lessons and Data
After teachers plan strong lessons, they still need to prepare to teach them. From rehearsing lessons with one another to making sure all materials are ready for the next day, our staff collaborates to execute intentional, differentiated, and detailed plans.
You cannot know if students are learning at the highest levels if you do not assess that learning. Data-driven instruction, then, becomes a road map for rigor. It defines the bar for excellence and gives staff and students the tools to discover areas of growth and improve.
Perform: Results and Feedback
We know that the best way to ensure exceptional achievement is through excellent teaching. Through constant cycles of observation and feedback, teachers get coaching based on prompt, actionable feedback to ensure they deliver their best lessons each day.
