Description Alder Graduate School of Education is a not-for-profit organization that has grown out of a six year pilot program in Aspire Public Schools. Aspire Public Schools operates 40 high-performing, college-preparatory public charter schools serving 16,000 students in underserved communities across California and Memphis, Tennessee. Currently in its 19th academic year, Aspire is one of the nation’s largest open-enrollment K-12 public charter school systems serving predominantly low-income students and delivering a rigorous College for Certain education.

Through a partnership with the University of the Pacific, Alder Graduate School of Education has trained and developed over 200 new teachers through a one-year apprenticeship model (the Aspire Teacher Residency). This teacher preparation model results in graduates with masters and teaching credentials and deep, classroom-based training who are tremendously effective as first year teachers and beyond, are staying in the classroom at higher rates than teachers prepared via traditional pathways, and are more demographically representative of the communities we serve.

GENERAL SUMMARY:

EDUC 255 (3 units) and EDUC 265 (2 units)- Secondary English and Humanities Methods
These are two courses taught by the same instructor as a ‘hybrid’ course:
One session taught before the in-person sessions (most likely as online module)
Five full day in-person sessions at the University of the Pacific from January 22-26 (travel and hotel provided if coming from outside Central Valley)
Three sessions taught after in-person sessions (most likely as online modules)

Pay is $1,400 per unit for instructor with doctoral degree; $1,300 per unit for instructor with Master’s degree.

If selected for this position, you will be recommended for appointment to the University of the Pacific and upon appointment will be required to complete the Pacific hiring process.
