Future Leaders Institute Charter School (FLI) is a K-8 charter school located in Harlem. FLI’s mission is to deliver a rich and rigorous educational experience in order to develop academically high-performing students with the leadership, character, and knowledge to achieve success in high school and beyond by focusing on a culture of academic achievement, respect, self-discovery, and community. To make this mission a reality for our students, we structure our school week and curricula to provide an education to all of our students that is rigorous, holistic, individualized, and enriching. We are divided into a Lower School (grades K-5) and a Middle School (grades 6-8). We provide programming to all of our students starting at 2:30 sharp through dismissal at 4:45 each week day. Extended Day classes have included over the years art, coding, robotics, dance, music, drumming, and physical education.
For each of these classes, we are looking for teachers who are prepared to reach and teach the next generation. We need experienced teachers to grow with our FLI Family and expand their teaching skills. Lessons should be filled with high-energy, engaging activities. Teachers must be versed in full classroom instruction, able to teach students of different skill levels within the same class, be able to multi-task, value frequent communication with supervisors and other staff, and go the extra mile to make students the best they can be. Specifically, all of our teachers must be:
• Prepared to be fingerprinted
• Prompt and flexible
• Highly motivated and a team player
• Passionate about educating young people
• Prepared to show evidence of lesson plans and evidence of student learning
• Able to control class sizes of at least 20 students with management tactics
• Highly organized and a self-starter
