The Teacher Collaborative is a community built by teachers, for teachers that fosters collaboration, empowers innovation, and creates meaningful professional learning opportunities for all educators. We are a startup non-profit located in Boston with a statewide focus. Founded in 2016, the Teacher Collaborative became a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks in August of 2017 and is currently working toward being an independent nonprofit organization.
We offer programs that are designed to bring educators together, elevate teachers as experts, support collaboration across schools, and celebrate and share practices that benefit all students. All educators from any school across Massachusetts are invited to participate in our core programs:
In addition, we do fee-for-service project work that is aligned with our mission of making all schools better places to learn--for students, teachers, and school leaders. For example, we run design thinking sessions, create and facilitate opportunities for teachers to participate in decision-making and leadership, and design and run in-person events that showcase teachers’ innovative ideas and work.
The Program Coordinator (Coordinator) collaborates with the Executive Director and Director of Programs to ensure thoughtful planning, high-quality implementation, and continuous improvement of the Teacher Collaborative’s core programs and projects. Because we work with educators, many of our events and meetings take place in the evening including Educator Exchange events (4-7pm) and Co-Lab meetings (5-8pm). Therefore, the Coordinator must be able to work a flexible schedule as is needed.
The Coordinator reports to the Director of Programs and is responsible for doing the following activities:
