Who Are You?

You’re all in.  You believe there is no more urgent task than to educate students from low-income backgrounds, so you are committed to the core.  Our work is high-energy, fast-paced, tiring and sometimes all-consuming, and you wouldn’t have it any other way.  You own your work and when you reach your goals, you reach higher.  You work incredibly hard, and are inspired by the urgency of what we do.  You aren’t afraid to ask for help, feedback, and support; you’re equally eager to give all of the above.  You’re driven by personal accountability, data, and results, and you’re not above doing whatever’s asked.  You make friends at work, smile through hectic days, and add a little levity along the way. You have the opportunity to work with students, and there’s always someone who’s got your back from coaching you through a challenging day to helping you grow professionally. And while the environment can be fast paced and ever-changing, you’ll have all of the technology and caffeine you need to get the job done.

Our Response and Responsibilities During the Pandemic

Recognizing how this pandemic disproportionally affects communities of color, we have taken steps to meet our mission in a number of ways. In addition to sharing our blueprint in approaching virtual and at distance learning, we have allocated resources for familial support, distributed hundreds of devices to sustain techquity amongst students, and provided over 100,000 meals throughout the south Brooklyn neighborhood to date. 

As we strive towards a future where we can resume in-person teaching, we have designed and executed on plans to provide testing resources and contingency plans for campuses. Furthermore, our teams are leveraging technology, trauma informed practices, & health & safety protocols to ensure we are meeting our mission of putting students first. Despite the constraints that distance learning provides, educators are still responsible for connecting with students, fostering critical thinking, sustaining high expectations all while operating safely, efficiently, and effectively. 

 

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Coney Island Prep is committed to building a team that collectively reflects the various backgrounds, experiences, and identities of our scholars.

We are also committed to creating a space where everyone feels like all aspects of their identity are acknowledged, respected, and welcomed. We are intentional about creating an environment where people feel comfortable being their authentic selves at work by constantly examining our organization culture and challenging our traditions.
