Instructional Support Instructional Coach (Bronx)
Breakthrough New York Overview
Breakthrough New York is a tuition-free college success program that makes a ten-year commitment to highly motivated, low-income middle school students. We support our students on their pathway to college by providing academic enrichment and guidance from grades 6-12, including a rigorous summer program while they are still in middle school. Our unique “students teaching students” model focuses on selecting and training exceptional college students to serve as Teaching Fellows (TFs) in our summer program, inspiring them to pursue careers in education. All academic classes (math, science, literature, and writing) are co-taught by a team of two TFs.
Instructional Coaching Fellowship Description
In order to ensure the successful instruction and management of our Teaching Fellows, Breakthrough hires an Instructional Coach in each academic discipline (literature, math, science, and writing) to oversee a department of 6 TFs. Instructional Coaches are experienced and successful professional teachers who provide support, training and feedback to Teaching Fellows throughout the nine-week summer program and engage fully in the Breakthrough New York community. Exemplary Instructional Coaches are experts in their specific content areas, able to guide TFs through effective planning and execution, and always hold both TFs and students to the highest expectations.
This role was designed to support classroom teachers who are interested in developing skills as instructional leaders. The role includes targeted professional development for the Instructional Coaches as well, who receive structured feedback about their leadership performance throughout the summer from their site’s Middle School Director. Responsibilities are commensurate with that of a school-year administrator, and this experience will benefit high-performing teachers looking to further expand their own skill set. Past participants have gone on to become academic Deans and Instructional Coaches in full-time school settings.
