“Educating all of our children must be one of our most urgent priorities.”— Nelson Mandela

Learning Sciences International (LSI) works with educational partners to eliminate generational poverty through systemic change in K-12 education. Do you see yourself as a change agent of this most urgent priority? Will you join us on this mission?

This position is located in the Four Corners area of the Southwest USA. Candidates must have documented experience as an instructional coach and expertise at facilitating professional learning sessions. Preference for educators with experience in serving indigenous cultures.

LSI is a leading provider of professional learning solutions for schools and districts who strive to ensure that all students not only have access to a rich and rigorous, equitable learning environment but also have the skills and knowledge to ensure the outcomes that provide for their future. The pathway is provided to our partner schools through professional development, coaching, and research-based pedagogy. We do this through the guiding principles of LSI’s Applied Research Center. Our approach is measurable, replicable, and reliable.

Candidates should have experience as a teacher leader, K-12 building level principal or district/central office instructional leader. Passion for the work should be evident in their approach to self-learning and the learning of others.

Your LSI Experience: LSI’s mission drives our culture. Our work is focused on elimination of generational poverty through education. Parallel to that mission is our internal commitment to our own authentic and inclusive environment. We are committed to our own growth on this journey. We have the opportunity to participate in learning opportunities that allow us to be better stewards of instructional equity as individuals and as a team. One example of this commitment is a focus on formal and informal methods to ensure experience, voice and contributions are shared, heard and valued.
