Middle School Interventionist/Teacher

Durham, North Carolina, United States · Middle School Program · 003


Student U is a college-access and success organization that believes all students in Durham have the ability to succeed. We know that structural racism, poverty and other systemic injustices force our students to face significant obstacles to educational success. We want to change the odds for children in the Durham community. We believe our students are powerful, and that this power will help us realize a Durham where all students can succeed.

The Work

The Middle School Professional Interventionist role is designed for educators experienced in providing structured academic interventions, and believe fervently in the brilliance and potential of our students. Professional Interventionists will work twice a week throughout the school year with small groups of 3-7 middle school students, acting as an instructor in either math or reading skills to help remove barriers from student success at school, and providing necessary support for each student. Professional Interventionists will work on a team with the Student U Learning Specialist. Together, they will support After-School Instructors, Program Coordinators, and Student U staff to ensure that each of our students are receiving the support, intervention, and enrichment that they need to be the most successful academic, emotional, and social versions of themselves during the school year.
