The opportunity

Southern New Hampshire University is accepting applications for Student Teacher Supervisors. This is a part-time adjunct position and we are looking for candidates to join us for the fall 2024 semester and opportunities in the future. You will be the liaison between the University and partner schools. Candidates for this role can be teachers, administrators or other experienced professionals who have been or are involved in schools and who hold a valid educator license and a minimum of a master's degree in education or a related field.

What you will do:

  • Attend yearly trainings by the Office of Educator Preparation in our Candidate and Program Assessment Systems.
  • Facilitate honest feedback conversations that encourage and support growth.
  • Assist School-based Clinical Educators (mentor teachers) in guiding the professional development of teacher candidates.
  • Maintain a cooperative working relationship between SNHU's Education Programs and the cooperating schools. You are the liaison between the university and the schools where teacher candidates are placed.
  • Visit the teacher candidates and conference with them after each visit to inform them of their progress and the areas where they need to improve. A minimum of five visits each semester is expected. Additionally, you should communicate either in person or virtually with the school-based clinical educator within the first two weeks of the semester if it is a new placement for the candidate to which they are assigned.
  • Complete all assessments in Anthology Portfolio (online portfolio system) as outlined in the Assessment Calendar.
  • Be available to teacher candidates for questions, discussion of problem areas and support in their placement.
  • Facilitate the exchange of the necessary documentation between the university and the cooperating school.
  • Conference with the school-based clinical educator each time the teacher candidate is visited and be available between visits for phone conferences if needed or requested.
  • In the event there are concerns expressed by the school-based clinical educator or the teacher candidate, it is expected that you will communicate those concerns immediately to the student teaching seminar instructor and the Office of Educator Preparation.

What we're looking for:

  • Master's degree in education or related field
  • Current New Hampshire Educator Licenses (preferably Principal, Curriculum Administrator, Special Education Administrator, or Superintendent)
  • 5+ years public school teaching experience; and evidence of teaching excellence
  • Evidence of coursework, professional development, or experience in supervision, evaluation, and feedback.

We believe real innovation comes from inclusion - where different experiences, perspectives and talents are celebrated. So if you're wondering whether SNHU is right for you, take the leap and apply. You might be just the person we're looking for.
