Blueprint Math Fellow 2020-2021

Company: Blueprint Schools Network
Location: Walnut Creek
Posted on: March 23, 2020

Job Description:

Now Accepting Applications in Oakland and East St. Louis for the 2020-2021 School Year! Positions will begin in late summer.

Blueprint is a national nonprofit organization that partners with states, districts and schools to promote educational equity and improve life outcomes for students. Blueprint is currently working with public school districts in Oakland (CA), Leadville (CO) and East St. Louis (IL) to plan, implement and monitor rigorous school improvement initiatives.

A key component of our work is an intensive, daily, in-school math tutoring program Blueprint operates called the Blueprint Fellows Program.

No certification required!

Position Summary

Blueprint Math Fellows are full-time tutors charged with providing students with highly personalized tutoring in mathematics during the regular school day. Fellows work with no more than four students at a time, delivering individualized lessons and working closely with teachers to accelerate students' academic achievement. Fellows also work to build strong relationships with students to help increase their self-confidence and commitment to education. The Blueprint Fellows program is an opportunity to participate in a year of service making a difference in the lives of students. Fellows receive a fellowship stipend as well as benefits.

While teachers have classrooms of 25 or 30 students, Fellows manage no more than 4 students at a time. This allows for the individualization of remedial and supplemental instruction in a safe space, where students are encouraged to engage with one another and explain their thinking. Fellows individualize lessons to meet the needs, interests, and passions of their students and deliver data-driven instruction that not only significantly impacts student achievement, but inspires students to be lifelong learners. By using math as the vehicle, Fellows foster critical thinkers, confident communicators, and engaged citizens who question, reflect, self-assess, visualize, respond positively to feedback, persevere, and internalize goal setting as a tool for continuous self-improvement. Fellows receive curriculum materials, pre-service training, on-going mentoring and professional development as well as written evaluation of feedback from their assigned Site Manager. Fellows are charged with focusing on the individual needs of their students, helping to accelerate student achievement and close any skill gaps that may exist.

Fellow responsibilities include: Instruction, Planning, Communication & Feedback, and Compliance. Examples of duties within these categories include:

Instruction:

--- Carry out all the responsibilities of an academic tutor and ensure that students are consistently learning and challenged.
--- Assist students in setting and reaching academic goals.
--- Observe, monitor, and assess students' performance on a regular basis and record data to track student progress towards academic goals. Modify instruction and lesson plans based on student assessment results.
--- Tutor students using a variety of research-based instructional strategies designed to support students' individual needs.

Planning:

--- Implement daily and weekly lesson plans using a predetermined curriculum.
--- Support the preparation of instructional activities to support students in mastering specific academic skills, subject matter content, and end-of-unit assessments.
--- Collaborate with classroom teachers and Math Fellows Site Manager to ensure tutorial lessons are aligned with classroom instruction.

Communication & Feedback:

--- Reach out to students' families at least once every two weeks to update them on their student's academic progress in tutorial.
--- Actively participate in professional development activities.
--- Meet with Site Manager regularly to receive coaching and both informal and formal evaluation and feedback.

Compliance:

--- Maintain confidentiality of student information as required by law and district policies.
--- Enforce school/district behavior rules and policies.
--- Perform other job-related duties as assigned.

Being a Fellow is an intense but rewarding experience. The following characteristics are what we look for from our Fellows.

--- A team-player attitude with a strong sense of personal accountability and strong communication skills.
--- Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to be flexible and deal with a certain amount of unpredictability.
--- The ability and willingness to go above and beyond to help support student achievement.
--- Associates degree or higher required.
--- Proficient with technology (Google Gmail/Docs/Sheets, and MS Office: PowerPoint/Word/Excel).
--- Experience working with adolescents or related field preferred.
--- Experience tutoring or mentoring youth is preferred.

Fellowship Living Allowance and Benefits
The Fellowship living allowance per school year is $20,000 for our East St. Louis program and $25,000 for our Oakland program. Living allowance may be pro-rated based on start date, schedule and/or program end date. The Fellow position is eligible for benefits.

AmeriCorps:

The Blueprint Math Fellows Program is part of a national network of AmeriCorps Programs engaging adults in service to meet critical needs in communities across the country. Through our AmeriCorps partnership, eligible candidates may have the opportunity to enroll in the Math Fellows Program as an AmeriCorps Member and qualify for additional benefits.

--- A national support network of members and alumni

Please note: The AmeriCorps eligibility requirements relate only to participating as an AmeriCorps member and do not exclude candidates from being considered for non-AmeriCorps Fellow positions.

Discounted Master's Program:

Blueprint has established a partnership with Boston University Wheelock College of Education and Human Development that will allow Blueprint Fellows the opportunity to obtain a Masters of Education (Ed.M.) in Curriculum & Teaching at two thirds of the cost. This 36-credit, online or in-person program is specifically designed for those working full time. Below are some great benefits the program has to offer:
