Breakthrough is looking for Instructional Coaches to mentor these young teaching interns in classroom management, instructional design, and curriculum implementation. Positions are available in all departments: Math, Science, Literature, and Writing. Applicants should have a minimum of two years of full-time teaching experience, ideally at the middle school level.

Past coaches have called their summer with Breakthrough the "best professional development [they've] ever experienced." Coaching is rewarding, challenging, and energizing. You'll come back to your school in the fall filled up, not drained, having spent a summer mentoring enthusiastic young teachers.
