Mentor for Summit Learning Teacher Residency

Who We Are:

Marshall Street Initiatives:

Marshall Street at Summit Public Schools (“Marshall”) is a team of educators working to expand opportunities for all students. While our initiatives focus on different groups—teachers, principals, parents, graduates, and K-12 students—they are united by their focus on equitable access to education. Together with a broad group of engaged partners, we’re building towards a world in which every student is equipped to live a life defined by financial independence, community, strong relationships, health, and purpose.

Summit Public Schools:

Summit is a network of public schools that prepares all students to be the best versions of themselves, to be successful through college and in the fullest ways possible—so they can each live a fulfilled life. This includes a life filled with financial security, purposeful work, strong relationships, meaningful community, and personal health. Today, Summit operates 15 public middle and high schools whose students reflect their diverse communities in California and Washington. Summit schools are consistently ranked among the best in the nation. All Summit students graduate prepared for a four-year college and our graduates complete college at twice the national average.

The Summit Learning Environment:

Teaching at Summit is unlike teaching in a traditional environment. Our teachers know the individual strengths and growth areas for each student. We empower students to own their learning.By design, our schools are small communities where every student is known. Our schools are intentionally heterogeneous, and reflect the diverse demographics of the communities they are a part of. As a teacher, this will require being culturally responsive and creating equitable learning pathways for all students.Summit teachers plan by deeply understanding student data and determining what group and individual supports are needed for their students to move forward on complex projects.This planning requires teachers to consider not only how students are integrating content information into their projects but also how they are applying cognitive skills (e.g. hypothesizing) that stretch across all content areas and the habits of success (e.g. self-direction) that allow them to prepare for the world beyond the classroom.Summit teachers do not see themselves as disseminators of knowledge but instead as facilitators and coaches to their students.We are committed to continual growth at Summit. We prioritize developing leaders from within and have invested in multiple career pathway programs for our teachers and school leaders. With dedicated days of professional development built into the academic year, we equip teachers with the tools necessary to improve their practice and tackle challenging issues.

Position Overview:

The Summit Learning Teacher Residency seeks to support the next generation of teachers in building the skill, mindset, and practice to lead a high-quality personalized learning classroom. It is a one year program during which residents are immersed in Summit classrooms while also completing credentialing coursework leading to a California Single Subject Teaching Credential.  The residency program was designed in collaboration with the Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning and Equity (SCALE). Residents work alongside a cooperating teacher four days a week for the length of the school year.  The residency model uses a gradual release of responsibility approach, working up to independently teaching one class section for the second semester.  The learning experiences and coursework that the residents engage in follow Summit’s personalized learning model.  Residents demonstrate their learning through authentic projects that can then be implemented directly in their classrooms.  Residents learn content through playlists, allowing them to personalize and self-pace this learning experience. As a cohort, residents engage in coursework one full day and one afternoon each week; this time is spent in a combination of whole group, small group, and individual learning experiences, depending on the needs of the residents.Residents receive support from both a cooperating teacher and a mentor.  The Mentor plays the role of both an instructor and a coach.  The Mentor facilitates the weekly learning experiences for all residents, while also providing feedback on and assessing their credentialing coursework.  The Mentor also observes and coaches a small group of residents every other week.  This dual role allows the Mentor to support the resident in making direct connections between the coursework / projects and the experiences he/she is having in the classroom.  Mentors are part of the Summit Learning Teacher Residency program faculty and report directly to the Program Director.  As a team, the Mentors represent a diverse set of expertise, including a wide variety of subject area knowledge, an array of professional backgrounds, and complementary skills. The team works together to deliver holistic support to residents, honing in on the intersection between personalized learning best practices and core pedagogical theory.
