Joel Klein joined Success three years ago as an associate teacher in our Teacher Residency program. He quickly progressed to become the lead music teacher at SA Union Square, and has been putting his expertise and passion to work by introducing scholars to the world of notes and rhythm.
Experience a day in the life of Daniel Santos who joined Success Academy in July 2016 as a Teacher Resident and was promoted to a Lead Teacher role within several months.
Discovery is the name of the game, and associate science teachers like Tracy make the most of every opportunity to engage their scholars, all while growing in their own careers through our exciting and selective Teaching Residency Program.
At Success Academy, new teachers — known as associate teachers — receive constant coaching and support from experienced teachers and leaders. We asked former associate teachers to reflect on their first year teaching alongside a lead teacher — an experienced educator — and to share what they learned that helped them improve and become strong lead teachers this year.
