The most important thing you will do in this role (and maybe your entire career!) is be a part of building the future of education for your area of domain expertise. You will design an AP (Advanced Placement) program to teach traditional school subjects but in a non-traditional way. We have a few core principles that guide our approach to learning:
We believe technology can deliver an educational experience that engages and teaches kids 3-5x faster than the standard teacher-classroom model. By the end of our program, each student will be in the 95th to 99th percentile range in every school subject. If you are a passionate subject matter expert who believes that technology—not teachers—is the key to unlocking students’ full learning potential, then this job is for you.
The ideal candidate for this role is someone who lives and breathes history, both in and out of the classroom. Unfortunately, in the traditional school model, most students have trouble staying engaged in history class because the content does not seem relevant to them—even though it very much is! In this role, you will design the activities, games, and events that show these promising minds why it’s such an important topic, and one that is worth studying in-depth.
You will be at the very center of the gt.school learning experience. Your expertise in history and enthusiasm for learning will enable you to create hands-on, real-world learning experiences. If you’re eager to give kids a learning experience that actually makes them love school, we urge you to apply.
