Minnesota Reading Corps

Job Description:  Make a difference and experience life-changing growth by becoming a literacy tutor for the Minnesota Reading Corps at Springfield Elementary School.  Whether you’re looking to explore a new career in education, give back to your hometown, reenter the workforce, or simply want to work with children, an opportunity awaits in Springfield.   

We’re looking for 2 preschool and 2 elementary literacy tutors for the coming school year—three full time roles and one .5 position.  Our service members will support our local reading initiative and overall growth as a learning community in the 2017-2018 school year.  Applicants should possess a positive attitude, strong communication skills, the ability to connect with children, and a passion for excellence.  We’re looking for service members that have initiative, drive, and a willingness to learn.  All applicants must be able to commit to 11 months of service (August 2017—June 2018), have a high school diploma/GED, and be at least an 18- year-old U.S. citizen.  Post-secondary coursework and/or a college degree is preferred, but work experiences within education or with children will be recognized as a favorable background.

Our literacy tutors will work one-on-one with students in preschool through  grade 3 that need additional help learning to read.  Our tutors will receive extensive training in research-based strategies and will use prescribed literacy interventions to monitor the progress of children within this program.  The goal of our tutors will be to ensure that students referred to the program will be on track to read at grade-level by the end of third grade.  Our tutors will be supported by an internal coach and will engage in regular dialogue with both this mentor and a regional supervisor to discuss progress and plan ongoing interventions for each child.

The successful applicants will receive professional development, a monthly living stipend of up to $1089.56, an education award as high as $5,815.00, and other benefits if eligible.
