  • Extensively plan curriculum for the academic year working with other teachers’ classes
  • Teach guided reading lessons to small groups of kids to remediate and challenge each student
  • Perform daily teaching tasks such as conducting morning meetings, monitoring lunch, and any of the other things that make you awesome at your job.
  • Update student performance trackers and rely on data to make decisions
Must Haves (ie: what you need to rock at this role):
  • A minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0
  • A minimum of two years teaching, preferably in an urban or low-income setting
  • A track record of success in the classroom, with data that you can explain
