We’re looking for a Professional Development Manager
ThinkCERCA is growing! We need to add a Professional Development Manager to support the work that we do in each region of the United States to best support students, teachers, and administrators as they use ThinkCERCA. Working alongside our Success team, the Professional Development Manager will help deliver professional development services to our partners in person and virtually as well as support development of resources and assets to support professional development with ThinkCERCA.
Why you want to jump on the ThinkCERCA train:
ThinkCERCA is a Chicago-based company passionately committed to improving the quality of K-12 education. Built by educators, our online platform is designed to empower teachers in personalizing literacy instruction across disciplines. The ThinkCERCA Framework provides a common language for students, teachers, parents, and administrators to drive sustainable growth in student achievement. Our work has a demonstrated impact: The results of third party studies show that schools that use ThinkCERCA see significant growth in their students’ literacy and critical thinking skills.
ThinkCERCA is a top winner of the Gates Foundation Literacy Courseware Grant, and was mentioned by Bill Gates himself at this year’s ASU GSV Summit. Just three years into implementing our platform in classrooms, we are already being used in over 30,000 schools across the country, and we are poised for tremendous growth.
Here’s who we’re looking for:
You are passionate about education and entrepreneurial in spirit. You’ve been a teacher or school leader before, and you are great at building relationships with educators. You know how to lead an engaging professional development session for school teams. You are very comfortable with technology. You are excited about becoming an expert on our online platform to assist teachers and administrators, and you are willing to roll up your sleeves to do whatever it takes to support our partner schools. You are familiar with models of blended learning - ideally you have even successfully implemented a blended learning initiative in your classroom! You are more than comfortable spending a chunk of your time working autonomously, but you are also a team player, and enjoy collaborating with coworkers remotely. You are available to travel 1-3 times a month. You will work closely with the Director of School Success as well as Senior School Success Managers; as such you work well managing multiple relationships and are time sensitive in your communication.
