GROW THIS SUMMER

If you see all students as "our" students and all families as "our" families, if you build community for students, teachers, and leaders of all ages, if you are able to rise above challenges, and if you never rise too high to pick up a piece of trash on our campus, you should lead our GT STEAM Academy. 

As a full-time Dean of Student Success, Instruction, or Operations, you will share responsibility for the safety, support, and development of 175 middle-school students, 8 coaches, and 32 undergraduate and high-school fellows. You will develop and support coaches and teaching fellows as they create a positive culture consistent with the Generation Teach core values. Year-round GT team members will train and support you. You will rekindle your own passion for teaching as you co-create an inclusive community and empower a new generation to end educational inequity. 

The Dean of Instruction is an exemplary teacher and experienced coach who supports our part-time Teacher Coaches and supports our summer teaching fellows in designing and leading excellent elective classes for our students.

The Dean of Operations ensures the safety and success of the entire GT STEAM Academy by managing supplies,  technology, attendance, transportation, schedules, transitions, emergency procedures, and field trips.

The Dean of Student Success manages all student and family services, support, communication, and events. The Dean of Student Success leads our Restorative Justice initiatives.
