Description

Cal Teach [https://calteach.ucsc.edu/] at UC Santa Cruz is part of a University of California system wide effort to increase the number and quality of California math and science teachers prepared for careers in high-need California schools. Undergraduate internships with mentor teachers in K-12 schools are central to UCSC’s program.

Under the direction of the Cal Teach Director, the Intern Coordinator administers the internship program which annually provides approximately120 academic-year K-12 internships, 15-30 academic-year university Learning Assistantships, and, when funding allows, additional short-term teaching internships. The Intern Coordinator will teach Cal Teach courses associated with the internships (up to five two-unit courses/year is typical) and will help plan and implement additional activities to increase the impact of the Cal Teach program. Responsibilities include recruiting and supporting interns and intern hosts, extensive developmental advising of undergraduates, resolving difficulties that arise for interns or hosts, maintaining internship records, and evaluating internship placements.

The position requires extensive collaboration within the Cal Teach administrative staff and with other Cal Teach instructors, K-12 host teachers and administrators, university faculty and staff, and teacher professional development organizations to coordinate internships and provide appropriate support for prospective teachers. Additionally, it is essential that the incumbent be proficient with common desktop and web applications (e.g., database, email, spreadsheet, and word processing applications).

Applicants with any of the following qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply: High-level professional written and spoken communication skills; demonstrated experience and competency with complex collaborations; experience sufficient to use the Cal Teach Filemaker Pro database and to organize and share information using email, spreadsheets and word processing programs; expertise in secondary science or math teaching, university advising of STEM majors, and/or university/K-12 collaboration.

Additional Opportunities: Other Cal Teach teaching opportunities may be possible. Applicants interested in such opportunities would be required to apply to the Cal Teach: Science & Math Education Lecturer Pool (Ongoing) recruitment. If selected to hold a temporary teaching appointment, the Coordinator of Fieldwork appointment may be reduced and a Lecturer position added for the duration of the concurrent teaching position; however, at no time would the overall appointment commitment drop below 90% time.
