POSITION DESCRIPTION: The Central Falls School District encourages applications from qualified and interested candidates in working as part of this 10-month residency program (beginning in late August 2020 and ending the last day of the school year in June 2021) with the District. Selected individuals will serve as a "Warrior Teaching Fellow" as part of the District's highly successful Warrior Teaching Fellows Program. The Fellowship will require passionate leaders in urban education to serve as instructional learning facilitators and student-centered teaching advocates in all six Central Falls schools while at the same time helping to bridge the gap between English language development, academic proficiency and the social-emotional support our students and families need in their schools and community. Fellows commit to one year of paid service to collaborate with administrators, teachers, and staff in providing a variety of academic and growth mindset supports in and out of the classroom. The Fellows will be responsible for developing, facilitating and implementing various best practice strategies and concepts focused on one or more of the following: Student-Centered Learning and Teaching, Enrichment, Social-Emotional Development, and Community Responsiveness. During the school day, Fellows will serve as either classroom instructional substitutes or restorative support in their assigned school cultivating strong personalized relationships with students and their colleagues. Outside of school time, Fellows are highly encouraged to be involved in many of the after-school programs and activities. Fellows accepted into the program will have the opportunity to personally and professionally develop skills by participating in numerous District-wide professional development experiences in the areas of personalized learning, English language development, restorative practices, community responsiveness, social-emotional learning and student agency. All Fellows will go through a required summer training program and are to attend monthly professional development sessions. Finally, Fellows must have the courage and passion to inspire change in our schools, influence the lives of our students, and become "guardians of equity" for the youth of Central Falls. The Central Falls School District can provide city housing to interested candidates. Additional information available upon request. DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES: • Commit to facilitating instruction and providing ongoing student support five days a week and for 185 days in your assigned school (all Fellows are assigned to one school for the year). • Attend all pre-training monthly, monthly professional learning, and school specific teacher meetings (when applicable). • Collaborate with school administrators and district leadership to help bridge the gap between the community of Central Falls and the academic and social-emotional support our students need. • Be CFSD advocates and assist in the implementation of the CFSD's E3 (Equity, Empowerment and Excellence) Blueprint for Success core values.
