Four Positions: $50K/Year + Benefits & 5 Weeks Paid Vacation
Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Staten Island
Starting September 2015
Literacy Partners (www.literacypartners.org) is seeking four dynamic teachers to help us strengthen and grow our adult literacy classes for parents of young children. We are creating new full-time positions with benefits because we know that good jobs for adult educators will result in better results for learners.
Classes begin in September 2015 in locations in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Staten Island. Class schedules will be determined over the summer: some will meet in the mornings, others in the evenings.
Each position includes approximately 20 hours of classroom instruction per week with the balance of the full-time schedule spent reflecting and writing about the class and your students, supervising volunteer teaching assistants and/or tutors, reporting on key indicators of student progress, meeting with community partners, etc.
Our classes are designed for parents and emphasize parenting and child development topics. We focus on parents in order to have a two-generation impact: helping low-income adults gain the skills to create a better life for themselves while advancing their children’s cognitive and social-emotional development. Our curriculum is informed by the latest brain science related to child development and how people of all ages learn.
