Join Our Team - Education Advocacy Director - Full-Time
TDP seeks an Education Advocacy Director to listen to and organize teachers, parents and community members around one or two TDP campaigns. Campaigns involve working with a team of teachers on school level projects, and, at the same time linking school level projects to each other, to training opportunities, and to TDP policy work. Current TDP campaigns include: social justice curriculum development, school climate change and restorative practices, democratizing school and district decision making.
This position requires researching policy and education history to help inform campaigns, providing support as needed to project teams and attending meetings that occur during the day when team members may be teaching or unavailable, representing team perspectives at meetings, school board meetings and identifying partners and strategic connections. Because TDP has a small staff, this person must also be comfortable assisting with some tasks that pertain to day-to day operations.
