Mission: Noble prepares low-income students with the scholarship, discipline, and honor necessary to succeed in college and lead exemplary lives, and serves as a catalyst for education reform in Chicago.
I worked at Noble Network of Charter Schools full-time (More than 3 years)
You get to hone your skills as a teacher and develop laser like focus on execution as well as classroom management. Because Noble is all about sweating the small stuff, whether you were good at it or not before, you become a "nobilized" teacher and that is invaluable. All of the teachers are the best of the best and you can learn a lot! As an organization, there is so much love for the network from the scholars, to the teachers, to the admins, without the brainwashing. This organization produces RESULTS and that's really all that matters when it comes to the achievement gap, expectations, and realities. I have never seen such a higher performing charter so true to its character. Be Noble. =)
Difficult work life balance and really not for everyone. It's for those who are willing to go through the grind and emerge a little bit success in the end. The reward is immensely gratifying.
Advice to Management
In the words of Mike Milkie, "Be careful out there" <3
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Noble Network of Charter Schools.
I was invited to submit some forms online. After that several principals emailed me expressing interest. I conducted some phone interviews, then they flew me out for a demo lesson. I toured all the schools and had a meal with each principal.
