Become An Instructional Coach

For the 2021 summer session, Breakthrough seeks professional educators to serve as Instructional Coaches for Breakthrough’s young teachers, AmeriCorps Teaching Fellows (ages 17 – 23). Instructional Coaches set the standards of classroom teaching in our program, by playing a vital role in training and supporting our faculty, refining and developing the summer curriculum, and shaping Breakthrough’s learning environment.

Instructional Coach Spotlight: Meet Ms. Q

“When I initially began working with Breakthrough as an instructional coach, I thought my role would simply be one where I would teach young adults to be confident teachers for the summer.  In reality, Breakthrough was much, much more. The most impactful breakthroughs I’ve experienced involved observing our Teaching Fellows grasp adulting with confidence, building a Breakthrough mindset amongst students and teachers alike, and creating timeless memories through our willingness to connect rather than reject our future.”
– Quintina Gildon (Ms. Q)
