San Miguel Catholic High School is accepting letters of interest from qualified and highly motivated teachers and interventionists for the position of Instructional Specialist in Academic Skills and Literacy.
Summary Job Description
The Instructional Specialist in Academic Skills and Literacy serves as part of a dedicated and high-competency faculty charged with ensuring that every student meets or exceeds the expectations for academic progress in cross-curricular content knowledge, academic skills and behaviors, and the literacy needed to engage successfully in rigorous learning.Â The scope of academic skills involved in this program includes executive function skill development, collaboration skills, and habits of academic success.Â The scope of literacy development involved in this program includes lexicon, numbers, images, data, and digital competencies.
This is a full-time (1.0 FTE) position whose priority responsibilities include providing general instruction in academic skills and literacy development to (a) first-year and second-year students, and (b) targeted instruction in the same fields to groups of students in need of additional intervention.Â This position also includes protected time for monitoring student academic progress and communicating with students and families, as well as protected time for common instructional development towards the further development of academic skills and literacy.Â Insofar as this is an inaugural position, the Instructional Specialist must be prepared to lead our collaborative efforts towards robust program development in academic skills and literacy.
All faculty instructors participate in a variety of collegial programs intended to serve their professional and ministerial growth needs.Â Our school offers regular opportunities for peer observation, instructional feedback, and professional development supported by both an Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) and a group of coaches in both instructional practice and instructional technology, as well as a team of highly skilled socio-emotional counselors and a working group charged with leading us in personal and spiritual formation.
Given our school's commitment to serving high-potential young people from families in under-resourced communities of Tucson, the Instructional Specialist is expected to demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to working with students who come with a history of under-resourced academic support and who will likely be the first in their family to enter a university degree program.
School Description and Mission Alignment
A full description of the mission, identity, and program offerings of San Miguel Catholic High School can be found at www.sanmiguelcristorey.org .Â The school is located in the Diocese of Tucson and is sponsored by the Brothers of the Christian Schools (De La Salle).
As a long-standing member of the national Cristo Rey Network , the school operates with a unique work-and-study educational structure through which every student (grades 09-12) spends approximately five days per month engaged in a professional work assignment at a Tucson area business and spends the other 75 percent of one's time in college preparatory classes on campus.Â In order to accommodate this dual programming, the typical school day and academic year are longer than most other area high schools.
In alignment with the school's commitment to an education rooted in Catholic heritage and culture that is simultaneously college and career ready, the Instructional Specialist is likewise expected to demonstrate a personal philosophy that highly values all three of these dimensions of a San Miguel education.
In its interview process for qualified candidates, San Miguel Catholic High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnic ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability.Â We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our teaching and learning community.
