Job Description

Teaching Matters (, a leading non-profit educational organization, is seeking  exceptional educational coaches to implement a ground-breaking teacher effectiveness support model for urban schools. This career opportunity offers the right candidates the chance to have a major impact on urban K-12 teachers and students.

Teaching Matters is dedicated to increasing teacher effectiveness, one of the most critical factors in student success. Over the course of nearly two decades we have partnered with more than half of New York City’s 1,750-plus public schools. During the past year we provided in-depth programming to approximately 1,600 teachers reaching 23,000 students in over 100 schools—the majority in underserved areas.

The primary role of the educational coach will be to support schools by implementing our Teaching for Impact program.  This program supports teachers and school leaders in three key areas:  implementing instructional foundations, developing teacher teams to support instruction, and developing the most effective organizational structure for sustained school-wide success.  Work will primarily be school-based and require intensive interaction with school leaders, teacher leaders, and teachers.

Responsibilities include:

Supporting teachers and school leaders in implementing instructional foundations

Developing and empowering teacher teams in collaborating for outcomes

Guiding and collaborating with school leaders

Key Qualifications:

Teaching Matters is unable to hire any employees of the New York City Department of Education within one year of the end of their employment.
