Relationships are the key to transformational growth

You will join our tight-knit Learning Coach cohort to work in a low-performing, urban, public school. Each Learning Coach leads a cohort of students in grades three through six in developing a growth mindset and deepening their conceptual understanding of math. Listen to our Learning Coaches talk about how the relationships they have formed through Ascend have impacted their personal growth.

We’re all in this together

Teaching is far from easy. No matter your level of experience, Ascend’s Instructional Coaches are here to support your growth. ATI fellows receive weekly instructional coaching from a corps of veteran classroom teachers. We know confident Learning Coaches empower confident students, so your well-being is our priority.

ATI Fellowship Questions

Our application process is highly competitive. The number of ATI Fellows that we select varies from year to year. We typically place 3 to 5 Learning Coaches in each of our partner schools.
We expect our fellows to live within a comfortable commuting distance of their placement in order to be able to deliver in-person instruction to their students.
As a start-up learning organization, school breaks provide some of our most valuable opportunities for program evaluation and innovation. Learning Coaches lead projects and conduct in-depth student analyses during the summer months in preparation for the following school year. For more information, see “salary and benefits.”
An ATI Fellow’s salary varies based on site placement. We base fellowship salaries on the cost of living in different Ascend regions. All of our full-time employees are offered a range of benefits, including health, dental, and vision insurance, as well as a generous PTO allowance.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until all available positions have been filled.

We are interested in highly-motivated and thoughtful people to join our team. No formal teaching experience is required, but we do recommend previous experience working with younger students/children.

The ATI Fellowship is a rigorous, full-time fellowship program. In the best interest of our students and our fellows, we do not allow participating fellows to be concurrently enrolled in classes and/or academic programs.
The ATI Fellowship is a full-time position. Fellows cannot be employed in another full-time position during their commitment.
Building deep, multi-year relationships with students is critical to our programmatic success. For this reason, all ATI Fellows are expected to serve for two years.
