Caliber Public Schools - Vallejo, California - Full time

About Caliber Public Schools

Caliber’s Mission is to achieve educational equity by shifting the experiences, expectations and outcomes for students in historically underserved communities. Our strengths-based educational program validates, affirms, respects and supports students, families and staff members to reach their full potential. Caliber graduates will be academically college ready; have emotional intelligence or ‘EQ’; be critical thinkers, and have the skills and desire to be changemakers in their communities and the world..

Caliber’s four graduate pillars--Heart, Smart, Think, Act--guide our work. Caliber teaches computer science as a core academic subject K-8th grade to directly challenge the inequitable presence of women and underrepresented minorities in the computer science industry. We are a community-based organization and celebrate the diversity of the communities we serve. Our parents are active partners; frequently engaging through school events, restorative practices, and academic support.

As we grow, we are looking for educators and leaders who want the opportunity to use their voice to build something new; to be a part of a team that's building something from the ground up. Our first school, Beta Academy in Richmond, CA, opened in 2014 and ChangeMakers Academy in Vallejo, CA opened in fall 2016. We plan to open additional schools in future years as we grow to nearly 4,000 seats K-12 in the Bay Area.

Position Summary

We are looking for an experienced leader to join our team as an TK-4 Math Instructional Coach. You will build strong relationships with the teachers you coach in order to drive the achievement of all students. You will use Caliber teacher evaluation rubrics to drive the professional growth of your teachers. You will integrate social-emotional framework into coaching conversations to drive equitable support of all students.

While this job description is comprehensive, due to the dynamic nature of the work it is not exhaustive. Your responsibilities might be revised based on school need or additional opportunities/needs that arise, or aligned to individual development goals.
