ABOUT THE MATCH CHARTER PUBLIC SCHOOL
The Match Public Charter School is a high-performing, innovative charter public school in Boston, serving students from Pre-K to 12th grade on multiple campuses across the city. Our mission is to prepare students from Boston’s inner city for success in college and beyond. Match Charter Public School students are some of the highest performing students in the state, and over 80% of our graduating seniors enter four year colleges every year (For more information on our results, please visit us at http://www.matchschool.org)
Our school has a unique model: Match students receive one to two hours of small group tutoring as part of our school day, every day. We also emphasize incredibly high expectations for all of our students – both behaviorally and academically – and truly believe all students can and will succeed.
All that said, we know that the largest driver of our success is the people who work in our schools every day. To that end, we have an immediate opening for an Inclusion Aide position at our middle school school campus.
DESCRIPTION OF ROLE
The Inclusion Aide is an integral member of our school team, and is a great opportunity for someone who relishes the idea of working with students with special needs.
Inclusion Aides will be responsible for developing deep relationships with students, and leveraging those relationships to ensure that students are meeting their academic potential.
The Inclusion Aide will deliver lessons developed by the Special Education team, and make curricular/homework modifications for students as needed. The Inclusion Aide will also assist students that have difficulty with academic and life skills, as well as appropriate social and behavioral concepts.
Competitive applicants will:
• have prior experience working in a school setting with students who have intellectual and/or emotional impairments (experience in behavior interventions a plus);
• a deep belief that all students can and will succeed and a willingness to do whatever it takes;
• desire to continually improve their practice as an educator by taking and implementing feedback;
• have a proven record of student success and achievement;
• have an incredible amount of patience and willingness to go the extra mile;
• appreciate a good sense of humor.
