Americorps - STAR Reading Coordinator
Are you interested in a flexible part-time job that will give you the chance to make a real difference while offering you resume-building experience and money to continue your education? We are looking for an AmeriCorps STAR Reading Tutoring Coordinator. Our STARS (Students and Teachers Achieving Reading Success) program at Northridge Elementary has a rich history of providing foundational reading skills for many of our students. The primary duty of our STAR Reading Coordinator is to organize small-group reading interventionists from the community as they help students navigate their journey through literacy. There is a strong focus on teaching Phonemic Awareness and Phonics lessons as well as reading books and writing with a small group of students. Lessons will be targeted and skill-based using screeners and progress monitoring assessments. Our STAR Reading Coordinator will be trained to administer and use screeners to select skills to teach and monitor student progress. Teachers at Northridge Elementary School must be committed to the ideals of our professional learning community. These include the strong belief that ALL students are able to learn at high levels. Applicants should be prepared to work in a collaborative environment in which common assessment data and best practices are openly shared. We embrace deeper learning as a means to prepare students for success in middle school and beyond. This person would work about 4.5 hours/day on school days to run a one-on-one tutoring program for struggling readers. The position involves a commitment through the end of the school year and you'd receive a total living allowance of $8250 (part time - 900 hours) plus an education award of almost $3000 (part time) at the end of your term of service (can be used towards paying off student loans or tuition at any accredited institution). Qualified applicants must be at least 18 years of age, US Citizen, hold at least a high school diploma, be organized, efficient and hard-working, interact well with adults and children, have working with children and preferably have some experience with reading tutoring.
