Mass STEM Hub, a program of the One8 Foundation, is focused on scaling high-quality applied learning programs in Massachusetts.
Our Mission: Provide schools with deeply supported access to premier, in-school STEM programming that engages students and prepares them for 21st century careers. Our first initiative is implementing a statewide strategy for Project Lead The Way, a premier STEM program.
PLTW Instructional Coach
Mass STEM Hub’s Instructional Coach is an exciting opportunity for an outcomes-driven PLTW educator to impact hundreds of classrooms by working directly with PLTW teachers in schools across the state. The Instructional Coach will help teachers strengthen their instructional practice and master PLTW’s activity-, project-, problem-based learning approach. Given our focus on high-quality programming for students, Mass STEM Hub seeks to provide robust support for teachers; we believe that top-notch coaching is one of the most effective development measures out there. Through co-planning, observation, modeling, and guided reflection, the Instructional Coach will support teachers as they refine and improve their instruction. In addition to coaching at the school level, the Instructional Coach will also help define Mass STEM Hub’s approach to what great teaching looks like in a PLTW classroom. Working directly with PLTW teachers across the state, the Instructional Coach will have the opportunity to codify best practices and develop not only Mass STEM’s Hub approach to instruction, but also work in partnership with PLTW and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) to develop additional supports for teachers (e.g., advanced training, video resources, coaching model, school leader resources).
