To support the Director of Learning and Development (“DLD”), a new senior program staff position. Blue Engine recruits, trains, and supports Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (“BETAs”), recent college graduates who work alongside mentor teachers to help students develop “college ready” skills in mathematics, literacy and growth mindset. This hybrid team teaching model dramatically accelerates student learning while simultaneously building a local pipeline of effective educators within historically oppressed communities. The DLD will be charged with designing and building out the first-year BETA, Team Coordinator/second-year BETA, and mentor teacher experience. By producing increasingly effective BETAs and team teaching units consistently across sites, the DLD will help Blue Engine to build a scalable model and impact greater numbers of students.
