Special Education Teacher: Job Description
Next High School https://www.nexthighschool.org/
NEXT High School is a free, public charter school in Greenville, SC built by people who want to make an impact—and want to do so as part of a diversely talented and flexible team. Because we love meeting and connecting with like-minded educators, we post positions even while our year is in motion—we’d like you to be able to see the model in action and think about a future with NEXT High School (though there may be opportunities for positions during the year as well).
NEXT High School is part of a public charter school network that includes NEXT School Eagle Ridge (NSER), a grade 6–12 school in Salem, SC. NEXT Schools exist to prepare young people for life by engaging them in life now, giving them the tools and opportunity to create real products, host real events, launch real businesses or nonprofits, and have a real impact. We believe that there is no reason for student work to be hypothetical, or for projects to live and die on a posterboard.
Some of our tools and methods include blended learning, 1:1 technology, a low-ratio teacher advisory program, flexible workspace, and flexible scheduling. These combine to create a dynamic, fast-paced, and high-energy environment.
In academics, students are paced to 4 courses per semester (a total of 8 credits possible per year). In addition to coursework, students are always engaged in applying knowledge and skills to create projects of impact: collaborative projects that cross subject lines and focus on creating value now (products, events, businesses, nonprofits, or community/personal improvement). We also have an on-campus guest "Breakout Speaker Series" to introduce diverse perspectives (think in-house TEDx Talks), and community-led “Breakout Seminars” that lead students through industry practice and hands-on experience.
