We.APP Seeks Teaching Guide / Employment
December 15, 2020
Organization Name: We.APP
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
We.APP (We Act. Present Perform.) Speak With Purpose (SWP) program is the only public speaking class offered as an elective or Language Arts course during the school day. We.APP exists to cultivate spaces that allow young scholars who are furthest away from educational justice to speak with purpose and truth. Our vision is to bridge the engagement and opportunity gap by reaching every child that is silenced in the back of the classroom and inspire them to break their silence and step forward to become the leaders in the front.
SWP is the only public speaking program incorporated into the school day with the purpose of integrating arts education with student voice to develop independent learners with self-authored identities. SWP adapts to the needs of each student by training diverse teaching guides to co-teach alongside classroom teachers to implement a culturally responsive and relevant project-based learning (PBL) curriculum.
Apply if: You are a creative being seeking to change the lives of young scholars by using your teaching experience to challenge them to be their best selves in and out of the classroom. You are an authentic and outgoing educator dedicated to integrating public speaking and performing arts with discipline, guidance and vision.
The Teaching Guide must be someone who is outgoing, personable and compassionate and teaches through an equity lens. Must be experienced working with scholars of color and abilities to command respect in a class while operating from a nurturing and creative place.
Applicants must submit a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
We.APP is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We.APP is committed to building a diverse team and strongly encourages applications from candidates of color.
