This is a part-time position located in Tennessee.
Who We Are:
Instruction Partners is a team of educators guided by a simple belief: you should be able to walk into any classroom and see every student engaged in the kind of challenging, inspiring, and supportive learning that will open doors and help them reach their potential. We believe this vision can be a reality for every child, in every classroom, in every school, in every district.
What We Do:
We believe if we can unlock the practical actions that have powered student growth and translate it into effective support for educators, we can get better faster, together, and make every classroom a place of great learning that prepares students for successful, rewarding lives. We do this by working shoulder-to-shoulder with teachers and leaders to improve the quality of instruction in core academics. Specializing in small schools and districts, we work in two ways: through partnerships with districts and schools to assess and pursue options for instructional improvement, and by providing teachers and leaders with targeted support to solve the real-world instructional challenges they face in their classrooms.
The ELA Instructional Specialist will play a critical role in supporting our district and school partnership work. The ideal candidate possesses deep instructional knowledge and experience with the Instructional Practices Guide (IPG) or other walk-through and evaluation tools. The candidate should be comfortable working with districts and teachers across the state in different types of settings.
Instruction Partners' Core Values:
This position is based in Tennessee (anywhere in the state). The ELA Instructional Specialist must have their own transportation and availability to drive up to 6 hours away to districts. Some overnight travel may be required. Instruction Partners will reimburse all transportation costs.
Instructional Specialists are paid at a competitive rate of $500 per day for in-person work and $50 per hour for virtual work. Benefits and healthcare are not included.
