Job Description:
Blueprint Fellows play an integral role in heightening student achievement in schools across the country. On a daily basis, Fellows build individualized lessons and plan activities that help to fill in academic gaps students may have to strengthen academic performance inside the classroom. During the course of the year, Fellows are building strong relationships that help to increase each student’s self-confidence in and commitment to his/her education, helping to foster a positive future for each student. 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. Fellows are charged with focusing on the individual needs of their students, helping to bolster and accelerate student achievement while helping to close any skill gaps that may exist.
Job Qualifications:
Being a Fellow is an intense but rewarding experience. Fellow positions are available to start immediately and last through the end of the 2013-2014 school year. It’s important that each Blueprint Fellow understands the urgency and rigor needed to help each and every student succeed in school. The following is what we are looking for from each and every one of our Fellows. • Willingness to be a team-player 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. • Experience working with adolescents or related field preferred. • Experience tutoring or mentoring youth is preferred.
