Summer Advantage USA – Dual Teacher

Position Overview

If you have the drive to be part of the solution and help to guide our young people to success, then share your talent and enthusiasm with our scholars as a Summer Advantage USA summer staff member.




Position Description

The Dual Teacher is the leader in the classroom who will ensure the academic, enrichment, social and emotional development of all Summer Advantage scholars. In this position, you as the Dual Teacher will use our provided academic curriculum, your creative teaching strategies, and your own designed enrichment offering to provide a rigorous, engaging and positive day of learning to our scholars. Your   afternoon enrichment plan should be a creative, project-based curriculum with daily lesson plans/activities. Enrichment offerings will explore talents and new content areas, which offer both self-discovery and help prepare our youth for their future. Successful offerings could include STEM, the arts (dance, art, spoken word, music, crafts, drama), technology, creative writing, industry awareness (example: engineering, food, entertainment), health and wellness, entrepreneurship, and culture.

The morning academic portion of the day focuses on lessons you will plan and lead with the active support of your assigned Teacher’s Assistant. Lessons will provide strategies to support academic skill development, polish current skills, and provide small group instruction, as needed, while encouraging and inspiring academic and social growth. The expectation is that all classroom activity will be engaging and interactive which will keep scholars interested, participating and actively learning.

Organizational Overview

One of the most effective tools to improve student achievement – summer learning – is currently one of the most underutilized. Summer learning, not be confused with summer school, provides children with a rich array of academics and enrichment (i.e., art, music, engineering, physical fitness, and community service); connects children with experienced educators and caring adult mentors; and engages parents more deeply in the education of their children.

By engaging all children in summer learning programs, we can increase children's state test scores, improve high school graduation rates, reduce risky behavior, and most importantly, ensure all children receive a well-rounded, high quality education. Summer Advantage USA will bring high quality summer learning programs to children throughout the country using a business model focused on sustainability and growth.
