Instructional Support Program Associate

The Academy for Teachers
 New York, New York County, New York, United States

Job Description

The Academy for Teachers needs a smart, creative, organized, and fun person to join our unique organization. A great perk of the job is taking part in our intimate events with world-class experts, intellectuals, artists, and other seriously cool people, like teachers.

This is a full-time, partly-remote position with occasional evening and weekend responsibilities. Applicants must be located in the NYC metro area.

The Program Associate will:

Facilitate our pilot program for new teachers, particularly those of color, at Title 1 schools. Help organize and run our other online and in-person master classes and special events.

Responsibilities include:

  • Overseeing the selection of teacher participants.
  • Communicating with participants before events.
  • Organizing teacher presentations.
  • Coordinating logistics including communicating with the host venue, ordering food, arranging transportation.
  • Serving as host, warmly greeting teachers as they arrive for a program, facilitate Q & A, etc.
  • Wrangling teacher evaluations following each event.
  • Post cool things on social media.

Candidates must:

  • Love to work hard.
  • Know how to work independently.
  • Be gregarious, socially poised, digitally wired, and perfectionist.
  • Have really good writing skills and eagle-eyed proofreading skills.
  • Know how to run a successful meeting and moderate a discussion.

K-12 teaching experience is a plus, as is experience in event design and planning. Familiarity with a database is not required but you’ve got to be comfortable enough with tech to learn how we use ours (Salesforce).


Benefits of Working at The Academy for Teachers

Generous benefits, including three weeks of paid vacation, half-day summer Fridays, retirement benefits, as well as medical, dental, and vision insurance (80% employer contribution).


All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against.
