Theme: Youth at Risk
Tupper Nova is a low barrier school with a Social Justice approach. Students can be categorized as very vulnerable and work on self-paced programs. Some students at Nova are experiencing a variety of barriers that have resulted in an extended disconnection from school. These barriers include (but are not limited to): mental illness such as anxiety, depression, OCD etc. Some students at Nova may be at varying stages of identity exploration and gender transitioning.
Teacher candidates should expect to be supporting youth doing core academics and electives. Also traveling into the community to do fun things. Candidates should arrive with open-minds and a willingness to work in a team. We are excited to have you.
