The Teacher Advisory Council (TAC) is a cohort of New York City Public School educators who advise and support the New Museum’s Department of Education and Public Engagement’s mission to cultivate growth—aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual—through inquiry and to strengthen people’s connections with themselves, one another, and the wider world. The Council collaborates with Museum staff to develop and promote resources and programs for school groups, youth, and teachers, ensuring meaningful, high-quality connections and resources for educators and their students.
Members of the Teacher Advisory Council should represent a range of experiences and identities themselves and in regards to their teaching and learning communities (including diversity of ability, age, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status). The TAC will be expected to actively contribute to group dialogues, reviewing and embracing Values and Intentions for a respectful and enjoyable space for collaboration. Applicants who bring experience teaching within diverse communities are encouraged to apply. Please discuss your experiences facilitating access and inclusion in your application.
