This is a part-time, remote position located anywhere in Northeast/Central Florida involving working from home and traveling throughout the state periodically.
Who We Are:
D2D is a team of educators that believes we can unlock student potential and opportunity by giving all students access to excellent instruction every day. We specialize in knowing what truly excellent instruction looks like and what leaders can do to improve instruction and student learning. This involves rounds of classroom observations and consulting to help strengthen the core instructional districts including curriculum, assessment, teacher professional development and coach and leader professional development. We work collaboratively with school and district instructional leadership teams, help them understand their instructional strengths and areas for improvement, outline the pathways they can take to get better results and let them choose the option that works in their context. We then support our partners as they take action (with various levels of direct delivery from our team) and we offer cross district training and support structures for teachers and leaders in areas of common need. We currently work with small districts and charter systems in Tennessee and Florida, but plan to grow to serve hundreds of districts and systems and over a million students across multiple states.
We seek to hire a part-time ELA Content Specialist to assist with the effort to improve ELA instruction in districts, to deliver support that leads to measurable change in instruction and to offer professional learning opportunities for teachers and leaders. We seek a motivated and detail-oriented educator with a strong background in instructional coaching and literacy - ideally with a view that spans K-12 but concentration in K-5 would be acceptable - as well as in developing and facilitating impactful adult learning experiences. Candidates should be passionate about improving instructional effectiveness and believe in the potential of students, teachers and districts.
