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 consult to schools, districts, and other non-profits on projects that are 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.
How We Work:
The Community Manager will lead the development of the Teacher Collaborative community, primarily through the Educator Exchange, including both in-person and virtual opportunities for teachers to connect and collaborate. Our community has grown swiftly via word-of-mouth and we are seeking someone to help us take it to the next level by ensuring that the Educator Exchange opportunities we offer continue to be exciting, inclusive, and relevant to large numbers of educators, thereby growing the number of teachers who participate in the community. Because we work with educators, many of our events and meetings take place in the evening including Educator Exchange events (generally 5-7:30pm).
