Julie Nariman NYC Educator

Julie Nariman is the founding principal of the High School of Language and Innovation in NYC. Passionate about collaborative student learning, language-learning, and building leadership in others.

Julie believes that students learn best when they’re given multiple opportunities to collaborate, express themselves, and work in teams, while also adhering to highly respectful norms and strong work ethic.

Classrooms at the High School of Language and Innovation are setup for collaboration, and teachers keep their lessons succinct so that students have time to work independently and in small groups to problem-solve, write, and engage in discussions.

The collaborative style of learning at High School of Language and Innovation has been recognized in Chalkbeat.

Our school was founded in 2011 and we had our first graduating class in June 2015. I lead a devoted team that has a special love for our unique, diverse population.

I started teaching English in New York City in 2000, and have worked in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and now the Bronx. I’ve worked in middle school, high school, and transfer high schools for older students. The views expressed in this blog are my own.
