All final candidates are invited to conduct a Teacher Demo, where our Leadership Team assemble classes of our students and candidates are given the opportunity to teach a lesson, challenge students, show their subject expertise, as well as show their ability to communicate high-level subject matter to young students.
Our students take these sessions seriously; they know their feedback weighs heavily in our hiring decisions. Some new faculty members have been teaching for years in college preparatory or university settings. Others are leaving a research lab or corporate job to leap into a new career and share their experience and applied knowledge with Karter School students.
However different their route into the classroom may be, expertise and passion are the unmistakable common denominator among all our teachers.
