Student Survey Proctors- Michigan Teacher Corps

TNTP seeks Student Survey Proctors for our Michigan Teacher Corps program. Student Survey Proctors will be TNTP employees based in our Detroit program office. The time commitment for this part-time, seasonal role will be variable (on average 10 to 15 hours per week) from January 2017 through March 2017.

Who we are

TNTP is a national nonprofit founded by teachers that believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. Today we’re a diverse team from a wide range of fields, united by a fierce commitment to helping school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.

Michigan Teacher Corps (MTC) is an ambitious, teacher-centered effort to invigorate struggling Michigan schools with great teaching. With the support of the Michigan Department of Education, MTC builds a passionate group of like-minded teachers, and provides the training, coaching and leadership development they need to provide a transformative education for Michigan students. MTC and TNTP are committed to serving Michigan’s lowest-performing schools, with a focus on Priority schools—those in the bottom five percent of state rankings, where too many children start school behind and struggle to catch up. We believe that Michigan schools have what it takes to thrive, and we know that great teachers are central to that renewal, both in their classrooms and within their schools.
