There are two open positions for Scholar Coaches at Ascension School. This position is a part of the Total Learning Classroom program, an innovation of Minnesota Reading Corps. Scholar Coaches support students at Minnesota schools with high academic needs.
As a Scholar Coach, you’ll be embedded in a K-3 classroom and partner with a licensed teacher to help students become better readers and promote overall academic engagement. With great training and onsite coaching, we’ll prepare you to work one-on-one or in small groups to help kids in an immersive classroom setting to develop their reading skills and confidence! Students make the most progress when you are there, so Scholar Coaches serve during school hours, Monday-Friday and are needed for the whole school year.
We are currently recruiting on a rolling basis for the 2019-20 school year. Scholar Coaches have the option of beginning in August 2019, October 2019 or January 2020, with the priority being an August start.
This is an AmeriCorps member position with the Total Learning Classroom, an innovative program based on the proven Minnesota Reading Corps model. As a Scholar Coach, you’ll join a select group of individuals dedicated to advancing education equity by helping students achieve their full potential and overcome systemic barriers to success in school.
