OUR TEACHER/ SUBSTITUTE TEACHER PROFILE

Griffin Nursery School is looking for a kind, mature, sensitive preschool teacher/ substitute with natural appreciation for and rapport with young children, at least two years of preschool teaching experience, and the twelve basic ECE units or more.

We would like our new staff member to understand the developmental norms and changes of 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds and to enjoy the variety of their temperaments and learning styles. You will:

• skillfully use active listening with children in conflict,

• have keen, quiet, and relaxed supervision skills on the playground,

• provide the clear limits and the flexibility preschoolers need,

• be their comrade in exploration,

• have artistic and ecological inclinations,

• try every day to be communicative, noncompetitive, responsible, detailed, and good-humored. When you fail,

you’ll pick yourself up (with supportive people around to help) and try again.

• And you will want to grow in your job and stay awhile.

THE COMPENSATION

Pay begins at $23 an hour and is commensurate with experience and education. All holidays and vacations scheduled on our calendar are paid. We follow the Berkeley Unified School District’s holidays and vacation weeks; and during the summer we take a two-day Independence Day holiday and a one-week staff vacation in August. We offer one paid sick/personal leave day per month, which, if unused, is paid out on the last payroll of the school year.

OUR SCHOOL

Since 1955 Griffin Nursery School has been a play-based, indoor-outdoor preschool in the Elmwood District of Berkeley. Its founder, Elinor Griffin, wrote Island of Childhood (1982), a brilliant study of preschool education based on anecdotes from the school. It was used for many years as a textbook at Mills College in Oakland, California.

Griffin is strongly social-emotional in emphasis, and we think this format makes our graduates truly kindergarten-ready when they leave us.

They have spent two years thoroughly undergoing the stages of early childhood socialization: Attaching to another adult outside home and family; making a first friend; sharing their friend with another child; cultivating multiple friendships of their own; working and playing in alternating pairs, foursomes, and fivesomes; and becoming interested in their roles as community members.

Their sociodramatic play has enabled them to cut and paste their thoughts and emotions with other children’s in the rich code of language; and through this multifaceted activity they have developed executive functions like drawing conclusions, predicting, and controlling impulses in order to adhere to the rules of the game.

Modest amounts of teacher-directed group times have provided them with time and place to take turns talking and listening; make community rituals and solve community problems; learn through rhythm, music, and movement; author stories and produce story plays; and hear and discuss books, broadening their knowledge.

Numeracy and literacy have been built into their daily occupations. For instance, when a child, approaching children at play on four bouncy balls on the playground, looks at the sign that says ‘4’ and counts the accompanying picture of four faces, she is practicing one-to-one correspondence in the act of determining whether there is room for her. If there isn’t space at the moment, she learns to deal with disappointment, create a visualization that she will have a turn, and write her name on a nearby waiting list.

Most importantly, we help our children become good citizens---that is, confident and thoughtful members of a community.

About Blueprint Schools Network (“Blueprint”)

Founded in 2010, Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit organization that promotes educational equity and improves life outcomes for students by partnering with states, districts, and schools to plan, implement, and monitor school improvement initiatives. Blueprint’s whole- school improvement approach to rapidly improving student achievement at low-performing public schools is grounded in a framework of five core strategies. These strategies emerged through analyses of the attributes that drive student achievement and represent common elements of schools capable of closing the achievement gap in the lowest performing schools.

One of the strategies that consistently demonstrated the most significant gains in student achievement is providing data-driven, small-group, differentiated instruction. Subsequently, we launched our small group differentiated instruction strategy “the Blueprint Math Fellows Program” as a standalone intervention service. Since that time, our Math Fellows have served students from grades 3-10 at more than 100 schools serving more than 20,000 students in The Oakland Unified School District (OUSD), Boston Public Schools (MA), Holyoke Public Schools (MA), Salem Public Schools (MA), Denver Public Schools (CO), East Saint Louis School District 189 (IL), and Saint Louis Public Schools (MO).

Reading Partners AmeriCorps Member (2020-21)

San Francisco Bay Area

San Francisco & Oakland

Full time

Reading Partners is changing the education landscape. We are a leader in working to solve the literacy crisis in our country by leveraging community volunteers and AmeriCorps service members in under-resourced elementary schools. Our dedicated and expansive volunteer base provides one-on-one tutoring to students twice weekly, and our program is proven to help children master the reading fundamentals they need to unlock their potential as successful and confident readers in school and in life. Our people are the heart and soul of our organization, and our greatest resource; we are all passionately rallied around our mission to help children become lifelong learners by empowering communities to provide individualized instruction that works. Join our stellar team leading the charge to deepen our impact and expand our service. 

 

AmeriCorps/VISTA engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program s founding in 1994, over 1 million AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1.4 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing more than 2.3 million volunteers for the organizations they serve.

At Reading Partners we have to mobilize 350 full-time AmeriCorps and VISTA members to serve in various positions across the country. This AmeriCorps service opportunity is school-based supporting and implementing the Reading Partners mission while at the same time exemplifying the AmeriCorps motto of getting things done. Reading Partners strives to recruit AmeriCorps members dedicated to a year of service in the community.

The Roles

Interested in direct service in one or multiple elementary schools? Check out our school-based AmeriCorps opportunities below!

The AmeriCorps Site Coordinator is the face of Reading Partners within our reading centers in elementary schools, leading the full-time program coordination, operations, and relationship development at their school. This is an exciting opportunity to serve directly with kids, coach volunteers, build partnerships with faculty and staff, and gain hands-on-experience with a literacy program that works!

What you ll do & how you ll do it:

Program implementation - Coordinate the day-to-day operations of Reading Partners program at a partner school to ensure the Reading Partners program and curriculum meet students learning needs.


  • Leading program implementation is a huge responsibility! As the head of a reading center, Site Coordinators demonstrate a strong understanding of our program and can effectively coach volunteer tutors through the curriculum. Superb organizational skills are paramount in meeting student enrollment goals (an average of 40-80 students), coordinating constantly changing schedules, managing accurate student and tutor data records, and tracking student progress through regular assessments. Site Coordinators also serve directly with students to provide ongoing tutoring throughout the year.

Relationship management & communication - Forge and maintain positive relationships within the school community to create a welcoming environment for students, volunteer tutors, faculty, and staff.


  • Fostering relationships within the school community is a key component of a Site Coordinator s success. Site Coordinators demonstrate an aptitude for communication, adapting their communication styles to best suit the needs of students, volunteer tutors, Reading Partners colleagues, and school-based faculty/staff. The ability to motivate kids in their learning and to manage their behavior is a significant responsibility, as is the ability to train, guide, and give feedback to volunteer tutors.

The AmeriCorps Regional Site Coordinator plays a critical role in our school-based team within the region. This role serves as a mobile coordinator to support multiple reading centers. They accomplish this by tutoring, identifying trends, sharing best practices across schools, and supporting AmeriCorps Site Coordinators.

What you ll do & how you ll do it:

Program support - Collaborate with AmeriCorps Site Coordinators to implement the Reading Partners program at a portfolio of partner school sites, ensuring that all students receive support to meet their learning needs.


  • The Regional Site Coordinator is an extension of the greater Reading Partners team. In serving multiple school sites, Regional Site Coordinators must develop a strong understanding of our curriculum and how to implement them across different reading centers. This knowledge is key to identifying regional trends and partnering with the local team to share best practices and resources across schools. Regional Site Coordinators often provide additional targeted tutoring support to students and coaching to volunteer tutors to improve program quality. If needed, Regional Site Coordinators may be asked to transition into the Site Coordinator role at a specific elementary school.

Relationship management & communication - Forge and maintain positive relationships within multiple school communities and with AmeriCorps peers to create welcoming environments for students, volunteer tutors, faculty, and staff.


  • Strong relationships are a cornerstone of the Regional Site Coordinator s success. Because Regional Site Coordinators interact with a significant number of students, volunteer tutors, Reading Partners staff, and school faculty/staff across the region, the ability to foster trust and positive relationships is a must. The aptitude to guide and give feedback to volunteer tutors is critical, as is the ability to identify student and tutor trends throughout individual school sites.

The AmeriCorps Literacy Lead is a direct tutoring support within our reading centers, focusing on target students in need of more individualized instruction. This is an exciting opportunity to provide intensive tutoring to kids, support the research and creation of literacy trainings, and get a hands-on approach to an educational program that works!

What you ll do and how you ll do it:

Direct tutoring & student support - Tutor an average of 15 target students twice per week, identifying alternative methods to provide more intensive and individualized literacy strategies to meet our students learning needs.


  • The Literacy Lead is an exciting role that hones in on tutoring and educational best practices. Literacy Leads partner with the region s school-based team to support site setup at multiple reading centers through the first month of launch. Once assigned to a reading center, our Literacy Leads collaborate with AmeriCorps Site Coordinators to identify, assess, and tutor students in need of additional instruction. A strong ability to understand our program is crucial, as is a love for serving directly with students. Literacy Leads may also research, create, and facilitate tutor trainings to share best practices and improve student outcomes.

Relationship management & communication - Forge and maintain positive relationships within the elementary school community to create a welcoming environment for students.


  • Creating strong relationships with target students is a significant aspect of the Literacy Lead s role. Because Literacy Leads regularly tutor a portfolio of approximately 15 students, an inherent passion and ability to connect with and motivate children towards success is crucial.
