TeachSIM instructional coaches provide remote instructional coaching for preservice teachers as they practice discrete skills in 5-minute simulated scenarios.

  • Gather data using TeachSIM surveys and assist team in using this information to improve quality.
  • Implement coaching sessions that support a focus on improving pedagogical practices in simulated teaching environments, in a manner that is inclusive, equitable, and multicultural.
  • Develop and maintain positive working relationships with internal working teams.
  • In addition to the above job responsibilities, other duties may be assigned.


  • K-6 teaching experience
  • Ability to commit 10-20 hours per week with occasional evening and weekend availability
  • Flexibility to work both independently and cooperatively within a team
  • Strong written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills
  • Proficient with Zoom platform
