Writers work directly with educators and school children in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex following a paid apprenticeship. These are very part-time contract positions ranging from only one 2-hour meeting to twice-weekly for several months. We look for reliable, practicing writers with a strong understanding of the interplay of reading and writing and its impact on the educational experience.
Most of these programs are in economically challenged urban environments in desperate need of assistance. Applicants must have reliable transportation, pass a background check, be able to keep commitments (including being on time for teaching and filling out required paperwork), and have a realistic sense of what is needed to help young people enrolled in today's beleaguered public school system. We are having two orientations Monday, March 22 and Saturday, March 27th. Attendance at one is required in order to be considered to teach this or next semester. For more information or to apply, please call (214) 828-1715 or email firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We are especially interested in writers with past teaching experience; knowledge of TEKS / TAKS; appreciation of reading and writing across the curriculum; interdisciplinary talents in other arts, science, history, geography, and / or math; training in ESL; fluency in Spanish; and the ability to work well with others.
We will want to see your resume, schooling, publications, work experience,
or professional bio. Thank you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Our mission is to foster the education and development of readers, writers, and audiences by putting them in touch with quality literature, each others, and the communities in which they live and write. We are an equal opportunity employer. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
