TNTP is a national nonprofit founded by teachers that believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. Today we’re a diverse team from a wide range of fields, united by a fierce commitment to helping school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.

Across the country, we work on the ground to create effective leaders by recruiting and training new school leaders and developing current leaders through targeted professional development and one-on-one coaching. In Atlanta, we are working with the instructional leadership teams of a subset of underperforming schools to ensure teachers and leaders are equipped to produce significantly better outcomes for students.

We know that to have an effective teacher in every classroom, there must be an effective leadership team in every school.  As a Leadership Coach, you will work with the instructional leadership team (including Assistant Principal, Reading Specialist, Lead Teachers and any other member of the school leadership team) in turnaround schools to drive change by creating and developing a shared vision of an excellent school and what excellent instruction looks like; and, providing the support to assist school leadership teams in actualizing that vision.

Specific responsibilities may include:

  • Leveraging district assets and building capacity to implement high quality leadership development in service of improved student outcomes
  • Designing and implementing trainings and supports for school leadership teams that optimize supports for school leaders to transform their schools
