Type of Vacancy: Full time

Description

Seeking exceptional educators!

TNTP seeks a full-time Effectiveness Coach, Elementary for TNTP’s Nevada Teacher Corps, an alternative route to licensure program in Clark County, NV. This position is based in a home office anywhere in the U.S. or from the TNTP central office in Brooklyn, NY. 

Who We Are

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. 

Staff on TNTP’s Client Team work alongside teachers, school leaders, districts and states to help them achieve their goals for students. TNTP Academy Online is a fully virtual teacher certification program with two core components, online coursework and virtual coaching.

What You’ll Do

As a Virtual Effectiveness Coach you will play a critical role in TNTP's teacher development initiatives and programs by virtually coaching approximately 50 elementary program participants and contribute to teacher development initiatives across TNTP Nevada. You will be responsible for the performance of the teachers on your caseload. Specifically, Virtual Effectiveness Coaches are responsible for:

  • Moderating the online elementary course
  • Using data from online coursework, submitted teaching videos and student work to inform differentiated coaching for each participant
  • Developing and executing a data-driven and comprehensive coaching strategy
  • Communicating with key stakeholders – partners, principals, and other Nevada Teacher Corps staff

What You Bring

We are looking for amazing people who have diverse backgrounds and experiences, are inspired by our mission and are highly motivated to change children’s lives through education. You’ll be right at home here if you learn from failure and overcome adversity, cultivate strong relationships, and push yourself, your work and the people around you to the next level. 

We expect the Virtual Effectiveness Coaches to bring:

  • Bring deep experience in teacher training. You have designed and led professional development for special education teachers and know how to move teachers from good to great. You believe in relying on practical, skills-based training strategies early in a teacher’s career, to lay a solid foundation for long-term effectiveness in the classroom. 
  • Have classroom experience. You have at least two years of elementary teaching experience (preferably in a high-need urban school) and a proven track record of raising student achievement.
  • Know great teaching when they see it. Whether you are watching a teacher deliver a lesson, reviewing lesson plans, or looking at student performance data, you can identify where that teacher is effective and what s/he needs to do to improve. 
  • Develop teachers. You track and analyze teacher data, but it’s what you do with it that really has an impact. You have a knack for, and experience, communicating feedback and coaching in a way that results in immediate improvements in teacher performance.
  • Have stage presence. We’re counting on your strong facilitation skills and ability to expertly lead teacher professional development, in both group and one-on-one settings.
  • Get things done. You develop a strategic vision and are able to implement it. Your ability to chart a clear course, juggle many tasks and priorities, and work efficiently in a fast-paced environment will bring clarity to the complex projects you’ll lead. You also have the systems and skills to keep on top of a caseload of 50 teachers. You are confident working independently and don’t hesitate to draw on the expertise of others to achieve great things.
  • Be comfortable with ambiguity. You are comfortable and confident shifting focus and adapting to new priorities quickly to meet the demands of the newly evolving work of TNTP Academy Online to provide the most effective teachers possible to high need schools.

Qualifications:

  • Experience and expertise in teaching and/or coaching teachers in elementary (required)
  • Strong familiarity and experience with the Common Core State Standards (required)
  • Strong familiarity with Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion techniques (preferred)
  • A commitment to constant learning and improvement, in both your own work and the work of others
