Teaching Roles and Responsibilities
Classroom Teachers: The classroom teacher’s first responsibility is to provide a safe, positive and productive learning environment. Classroom teachers hold the primary responsibility for the delivery of the curriculum using creativity, innovation and discovery. They ensure student learning and growth through the use of formative and summative assessments, adjust their teaching and provide additional resources as needed.
Teachers will participate in professional development, Professional Learning Communities (PLC), conferences and other trainings to improve teaching methods and skills. Teachers will use CCID’s core values of creativity, innovation and discovery to provide students with project-based, place-based and inquiry-based learning. They will also collaborate in PLCs to create curriculum that covers Utah State Standards through an Integrative STEM lens.
