ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT TEACHING
You have a talent for explaining complex concepts in simple terms. You can keep a classroom full of students engaged while also identifying and helping out those in need of a little extra assistance. You live for that look in the student's’ eyes when something just clicks.
ADAPTABLE AND INDUSTRIOUS
You’re flexible and ready to brainstorm solutions when a situation arises. In a fast-paced, dynamic workplace, even the best-laid plans occasionally come undone. Perhaps the students struggle more than expected with a particular concept, and the curriculum has to be tweaked to account for an extra day of practice. Maybe a meet-and-greet with local business leaders is only possible during class time. And, of course, things will come up in the students’ lives that necessitate extracurricular assistance. You can handle it all — bring it on!
ORGANIZED AND GOAL-ORIENTED
You’re able to structure lectures and assignments to explain the important concepts, but you can also recognize when it’s time to move on to the next item on the agenda. You love it when students ask questions, but you always keep an eye on the high-level goals and know to not get too bogged down in the minutiae.
AWARE AND COMPASSIONATE
You’re perceptive, caring, and nonjudgmental. Your classroom is a safe space for all people, regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, or any other distinguishing trait. Many of our students lead exceedingly complicated lives, so it’s important to be tolerant and empathetic. However, if a student tries to make the learning environment in any way hostile for their peers, you feel comfortable escalating the issue so that it can be dealt with swiftly.
AN EXCELLENT COMMUNICATOR AND COLLABORATOR
You interact professionally with students, peers, partners, and the press, and you always represent Re:Coded well. In and out of the classroom, you set a shining example for your students on how to communicate and operate in the professional sphere.
- Market-competitive salary.
- A range of training and growth opportunities for further professional development.
- A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet amazing people, influence countless lives, and leave your mark on the global effort to combat the largest humanitarian crisis since WWII.
