Classical is a National Blue Ribbon award-winning network of schools located in the South Bronx. Though our neighborhoods are historically under-served, we provide a world-class, well-rounded education to our scholars through a classical curriculum that includes art, music, Latin, debate and citizenship.


The At-Risk Learning Specialist is a teacher who provides targeted, small-group literacy instruction school-wide to our scholars who are the most at-risk of not meeting grade level literacy standards. Like all our teachers, the At-Risk Learning Specialist shares the undying belief that maximizing student achievement is their primary goal. Successful candidates have the drive to meet their key responsibilities:

  • Leading all scholars to gap-closing academic gains. Scholars must achieve mastery and advanced mastery of grade-level Common Core State Standards to succeed to and through college.
  • Establishing and maintaining a “no-excuses,” highly ordered classroom culture where scholars demonstrate respect, responsibility, caring, trustworthiness, fairness, and citizenship.
  • Collect and analyze academic data to pinpoint scholar needs for small group instruction, typically with guided reading and phonics.
  • Collaborate in teams and with coaches to resolve challenges and implement instructional improvements driven by quantitative and qualitative data.
  • Proactively seek and implement feedback from instructional coaches to improve their practice.


Above all, our teachers care deeply about their scholars, who inspire them to achieve life’s greatest joy: doing good work well.


  • NYS Teaching Certification
  • Track record of leading students to significant and measurable gains in literacy.
  • Masters level education in literacy a plus but not required.
  • Demonstrated application of our core values: Accountability, Innovation, Professionalism, Rigor, Tenacity, Transparency, and Urgency.
