Join TheEdCollab family as an Associate member.

A rigorous, one-year commitment to contributing to and learning with the organization.

The “Associate” position is a rigorous, one-year commitment to learning with and contributing to the learning of the organization. “Associate” is a role as a junior member, somewhat akin to an internship, that allows you the opportunity to work closely with us and help to lead our thinking and work forward. In turn, we believe this opportunity will provide you with a memorable and long-lasting learning experience.

The Educator Collaborative purposefully seeks a diverse range of experiences, identities, and expertise, all under the umbrella of “literacy.” Our members span a variety of roles, including: classroom teachers, literacy coaches, administrators, university professors, and authors. They bring expertise across the breadth of literacy experiences, including reading, writing, digital literacy, and Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy.

We especially encourage literacy-related classroom teachers, as well as all literacy-related educators from historically underrepresented groups, to apply. …Because we only change the status quo by changing it.
