Classroom Evaluator - New Orleans
|Type of Vacancy:||Part-Time Seasonal|
Seeking exceptional educators!
TNTP Academy is currently seeking experienced educators to conduct a series of evaluative classroom observations of first- and second-year alternate route teachers in New Orleans, Louisiana.
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.
Each year, TNTP Academy uses Assessment of Classroom Effectiveness (ACE), an innovative approach to certification that uses multiple streams of evidence, to assess and ultimately recommend new alternate route teachers for state professional licensure.
What You’ll Do
Evaluators will be responsible for conducting evaluative classroom observations for alternate-route teachers who are participating in TNTP Academy.
Specific responsibilities include:
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.
Successful applicants to the Classroom Evaluator position will demonstrate strong time management, organizational, and communication skills, both oral and written; are self-motivated; and display a commitment to improving teacher effectiveness for all students. Ideal candidates will also:
All candidates must also pass the final assessment administered at the close of initial training to continue as a Classroom Evaluator. In the event that a candidate does not pass, s/he will be paid for participation in initial training but not for any of the subsequent follow-up meetings or check-ins.
What We Offer
Evaluators will be paid at an hourly rate of $25 per hour for all training, school-year norming calls, site-based check-in meetings, scheduling, and observations (classroom time, writing reports, etc.).
Evaluators will be assigned a caseload of teachers (generally 10-30) with whom they must schedule observations during each round based on the teachers’ instructional schedules and the evaluator’s availability. While evaluators can expect to work ~10-20 hours per week during observation cycles, weekly working time will vary based on how the evaluator chooses to schedule his/her assigned observations. Evaluators will not be expected to work more than 20 hours per week, and there will be several weeks without any observations between each round.
Training (20-25 hours) will take place in August via an online course and webinar/conference call; more details about the structure and content of training will be shared later in the hiring process. Observations will be conducted in four distinct rounds, with dates for each round dependent on the site’s needs but likely beginning in September/October and ending in May. Again, staffing needs will vary by site, and observation windows are generally four to eight weeks in length. Information specific to your site will be provided throughout the interview process.
Please submit your resume and tailored cover letter online.
It’s in your best interest to apply as soon as possible. We recommend including a cover letter in your application addressing why you are interested in TNTP and how your experience has prepared you for this position. Please note that an offer of employment will be subject to the successful completion of a background check.
