Requirements for Applying

TO APPLY: Please send your resume and cover letter to careers@capitolcollegiate.org. Please also include your responses to the following three questions: 1) We would all like to raise student achievement and address the needs of each student as a "whole child." However, when it comes down to it, we often have to make hard choices. If you had to choose, would you rather raise student achievement or increase self-esteem? Both is not an option – you must pick one and explain your reasoning. 2) Is it better to be strict or caring? Which are you? Can you be both? Regardless of which you choose, strict, caring, or both, use concrete examples to articulate exactly what it looks like in action in your classroom. 3) What do you think are the key factors to ensuring success working with a predominantly low income, urban population of students?*
