T3 Teacher Leader - High School English Teacher Positions Open


Job posted by: Teach Plus

Posted on: June 20, 2014

Job description

The T3 Initiative is an innovative, teacher-designed program to recruit, develop, and support effective, experienced teachers to serve in teacher leadership positions in high-needs schools. Designed by the first cohort of Boston Teach Plus Teaching Policy Fellows, the T3 Initiative:

  • Creates cohorts of highly effective and experienced teachers
  • Trains them to become turnaround Teacher Leaders
  • Places them in teams in the schools where they are needed most

T3 teacher leaders are part of a broader strategy that supports effective teaching and can take on leadership roles without leaving the classroom. The T3 Initiative offers a path toward mastery in both urban teaching and teacher leadership. Each T3 teacher leader has a full-time classroom teaching role as well as a specific leadership position in his/her school. They receive ongoing support from T3 staff, including intensive leadership skill development, close collaboration with a school-based T3 coach, and frequent opportunities to network with teacher leaders in other Massachusetts schools and across the nation. Teacher leaders receive an annual stipend of $3000 for their work.

Candidates for T3 teacher leader positions must have at least three years of experience and a track record of success with high-needs students and schools. Selection criteria also include evidence of the existence of skills and competencies that are required for success in a turnaround environment. T3 is currently working to place highly effective 9th-10th Grade English Teacher Leaders at Dean Technical High School in Holyoke, Massachusetts.

Please be aware that if selected to be a Teacher Leader, you will be required to attend a mandatory New Tech Training in New Orleans on July 7-11 and a Summer Institute for all incoming teachers in Washington, D.C. on August 5-7.
