Assistant Teacher Internship at PS 9

A highly successful public elementary school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan is seeking applicants to intern as assistant teachers for grades K through 5 classrooms. The internship will start September 5, 2019 and will end on June 26, 2020. Work hours are between 8:30 am to 2:40 pm daily, requiring about 30 hours per week. The pay is approximately $450 per week, depending on the number of hours worked. Health benefits are not provided with this position.

This internship provides valuable classroom experience. Assistant teachers work under the direct guidance of a veteran teacher. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to providing one-on-one and small group support after a lesson has been delivered, conferencing with children to track progress over time, teaching small group lessons, supporting children socially and emotionally, and completing administrative tasks.

Although this internship is for the upcoming 2019-2020 academic year, it is possible to continue the internship through the following school year as well (2020-2021).

Candidates should have either completed a bachelor’s in education or be enrolled in a master’s program for education.

Please note: this is not a Department of Education “teaching assistant” or paraprofessional job posting.
