WHAT YOU WILL DO

Fellows serve full-time for an entire school year. They work with small groups of no more than four students at a time. As a fellow, you will help students by building strong relationships, individualizing lesson plans using provided curriculum, planning activities that help fill in academic gaps and support grade level instruction, as well as provide mentoring.

WHY MATH

This is a subject area where there is always a high need for teachers and support staff.  Many people feel as though they do not have the backgrounds that prepare them for a position like this, but often it is those who struggled in math while in school that make the biggest impact with students.  You will be working with students who are preforming below grade level, often working on elementary level math or early algebra skills.

  • Identify gaps in student understanding and work with students on the mastery of math.
  • Create a culture of high academic and behavioral expectations for all students.
  • Use grade level lesson plans in order to support what students are learning in their classes.
  • Work with students to set and track progress toward short term and long term goals.
  • Actively participate in professional development activities necessary to successfully carry out job-related duties.
  • Meet with Fellow Coordinator in order to receive coaching and feedback.
  • Conduct positive phone calls home to update families on student progress.
Requirements/Qualifications
  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Ability to communicate with diverse groups of people
  • Ability to plan ahead and stay organized
  • A flexible attitude and disposition
  • The ability to build positive relationships with students and colleagues
Compensation/Benefits

YOU WILL GAIN

  • A salary of $21,000 per year
  • Medical, vision and dental benefits options (If enrolled into DPS insurance, over $4,500 will be provided to offset the cost)
  • A potential AmeriCorps education award eligibility
