My name is Jahfree Duncan, IT Director for Match Education (www.matcheducation.org). We operate an elementary, middle, and high school in Boston for inner city students, and run an urban education tutoring program in Illinois in partnership with the Chicago Public Schools and the University of Chicago.
We’re looking for seniors who either
- want to spend a year working closely with students in Boston while training to be a teacher or
- want to spend a year in Boston or Chicago working closely with students before heading off to grad school or another career
Our teacher training program was recently recognized by US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan for its innovation. Program participants receive training on how to become highly effective first-year teachers (there is a near 100% placement rate in high performing urban schools).
In addition, teacher residents receive housing and a living stipend while completing their Master’s. The teacher residency is only available in Boston, but we have tutoring opportunities (for folks just looking to do an urban education gap year) available in both Chicago and Boston.
Do you happen to know of any standout seniors that may be interested in speaking with someone from Match Education?
You can contact our recruiting team directly at Recruiting@MatchEducation.org
Thank you so much and look forward to hearing from you,
Director of Technology
