“There is a real sense of collaboration, growth mindset, and learning together, in our teacher community. I feel extremely supported by my colleagues, and they have helped me become a better, more prepared, and kinder teacher.”

The Innovative Teacher Program (ITP)
Nueva provides associate teachers with experience in all facets of teaching and faculty life. ITP participants witness and participate in exemplary teaching practices, including Nueva's unique programs such as Lit Clubs, Social-Emotional Learning, and Design Thinking.
"I like working at Nueva because I often feel like a student of my students. I learn so much from them, deeply respect their peoplehood and ability to reflect and grow, and am inspired to be a better person because of them. I think Nueva’s culture enhances the student-teacher relationship because student choice is highly valued, teacher is defined as more of a mentor and guide and less of a portal of knowledge, and student is understood to be a desirable lifelong state of being, questioning, and discovering rather than a means to an end."
