Breakthrough is now hiring for Ninth Grade Summer Program Teacher positions. We’re seeking two outstanding professional classroom teachers, one each for ELA and math, to provide advising and instruction in our 2023 summer program for rising ninth graders. The program seeks to further develop our students’ academic skills, study skills, and social-emotional toolbox, helping prepare them for a successful high school transition.
In ELA, students will read the novel Love is a Revolution by Renee Watson, engage in discussion about identity and peer dynamics, and work on their writing. In math, students will build their capacity to work with multi-step equations and functions in preparation for ninth grade algebra. Classes will be academically rigorous, interactive, and thoughtfully planned, and will provide a nurturing environment for our students on their journey to high school and college. In advisory, students will build community, play games, engage in conversations about high school, and discuss other topics relevant to their lives. For both academic subjects as well as advisory, Breakthrough will provide curricula that you’ll be asked to adapt.
Teachers will be expected to work on-site at SF Day School from approximately 9 am – 12:30 pm, Mon – Thu, and to use some time off-site each day to prepare for each class session and review student work, as needed. We anticipate a total commitment of roughly 20 hours per week (50% FTE). Each day, Mon – Thu, each teacher will teach one 90-minute section to a class of approximately 8 – 12 students, and lead one advisory to a group of approximately 4 – 6 students. Teachers will work with the same students for the first 3-week session, and a separate group for the second 3-week session.
