Position at Catapult Learning

Overview: The Summer Learning Experience (SLE) high school teacher provides contracted instructional services with the necessary educational expertise in literacy, mathematics, STEM, test prep, and social-emotional learning to small groups of students.

This summer, we are seeking high school teachers to teach small groups of students in grades 9-11. All coursework is aligned with New York State Regents and graduation requirements. Teachers for rising 10th and 11th grade students will need to have a thorough working knowledge of technology and blended learning, as that level of high school programming and learning will be technology dependent.

The effective teacher delivers all program material to students either on a virtual platform or in-person at a school site and keeps students excited and engaged in the learning process. The teacher also communicates and conferences with parents to provide information on student progress. The teacher is supported by their assigned Academic Specialist and Operations Specialist.
