Academic Coordinator (Current Employee) – New Haven, CT – November 2, 2016
Typical day involves working with students who come into the learning lab in need of extra help with any subject or to have a quiet space to take a test and to be focused on their tasks. Usually no more than 10 students come to the learning lab a day. The High School where I am currently working has four different academies. The Business and Fine Arts academy is the academy that I work for, and part of my responsibility is to make sure that the students in the BFA academy are on track to having a successful school year. Other responsibilities are to remain in contact with the Assistant Principal for the academy as well as the Student Intervention Specialist and the guidance counselors to make sure that we are all on the same page with regards to our students. The hardest part is bringing the students into the learning lab. It was a very slow start in the beginning of the year and the pace has been picking up. To stay busy, I have created a spreadsheet for the Asst. Principal of the academy showing the students who need to build up their credits, and students who are in ninth grade who are failing more than three classes. The data shows what we need to work on as a team to better guide our students in the right direction.
Relationships and alliance being built with students.
