As a member of the Commonwealth Learning Center team, your skills will have a direct impact
on bringing our mission to life. We welcome you to peruse our current openings, below.
Commonwealth Learning Center, an independent nonprofit organization, has served the community as a leading educational resource for over 30 years and counting. We specialize in working with individuals who have learning differences such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and executive functioning difficulties. We work with learners of all ages—kindergarten through adult—in most academic subject areas.
We are seeking a full-time passionate and dynamic educator to join our Needham Learning Center team. The ideal candidate will have a master’s degree in education or, preferably, special education and advanced training in multi-sensory literacy, particularly Orton-Gillingham. Training through AOGPE is highly preferred. We are willing to provide Orton-Gillingham training for an exceptional candidate. Programs that we also use with our students include but are not limited to LiPS, Wilson, Visualizing and Verbalizing, and Project Read. Experienced educators who are highly skilled in written expression are encouraged to apply. Training in executive function strategies is also of interest.
Familiarity with interpreting neuropsychological reports and IEPs is a plus. A solid understanding of language-based learning disabilities is desired. Computer literacy and the technological savvy to work virtually is essential.
Our programs are individually designed to meet the specific needs of each learner, and our 1:1 model is optimal for educators who seek the reward of watching their students make measurable gains and progress to their full potential. Experience working 1:1 with students is preferred.
Massachusetts parents voted Commonwealth Learning Center the best educational support program in the state for five years in a row. To learn more about our programs, services, and our mission to serve our community, we welcome you to visit our website: http://www.commlearn.com/.
Please note that although we are currently delivering services virtually due to Covid-19, we are seeking local applicants only as this position will ultimately be in-house at our Needham location. This position will begin with remote delivery via Microsoft Teams (training provided). We offer a flexible schedule, professional development opportunities, and plenty of guidance and support.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume. In your cover letter, please address how your skill set matches our needs. Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience matching our needs. Benefits include health insurance (covered at 100%), paid vacation, 403b, and a retirement plan.
