Job Description

The complete description of the teachers’ functions, duties, and goals is contained in the Faculty/Staff Policy Manual. Broadly conceived, however, their job duties can be described by six major goals:
1. Exemplary Goal: Teachers have a tremendous influence over their students simply by living before them on a daily basis. Therefore, each teacher at UME Preparatory Academy will model consistently attitudes, perspectives, and behaviors that promote and support the academy’s values and mission.

2. Instructional Goal: High-quality instruction in specific disciplines is one of the core purposes for the academy’s existence. Therefore each teacher will strive to help his or her students achieve the learning goals and objectives, as identified in the curriculum guides or approved course syllabi, in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

3. School Climate Goal: High-quality instruction takes place best in an orderly but relaxed and supportive environment. Therefore, in order to facilitate the achievement of instructional goals and objectives, to maintain a quality learning environment, and to contribute to overall school effectiveness, each teacher will adhere to all school policy, applicable laws, and professional ethics; promote, uphold, and enforce all student conduct standards and expectations; and cultivate positive and supportive relationships with students, parents, and fellow staff members while fulfilling his or her duties.

4. Informational Goal: Good communication is critical for teaching effectively and for developing a productive teacher-administrator relationship and teacher-parent partnership. Therefore each teacher will advise the administration regarding the placement, progress, or special needs of individual students and collaborate and confer appropriately with parents while striving to manage student information in accordance with written policy and all applicable laws.

5. Institutional Improvement Goal: UME Prep is committed to continual improvement with the goal of developing an exemplary staff and effectively serving our students. Therefore, in order to contribute to the on-going progress of the school, each teacher will contribute, as directed by the administration, to on-going school improvement.

6. Professional Growth Goal: We assume that every teacher can become more skillful in fulfilling their exemplary and other vocational responsibilities. Therefore, each teacher will engage in ongoing professional growth and training, as directed by administration or required by law.
