Benchmark School is offering the opportunity to work as a Teaching Assistant in our Summer Language Arts Program. The Summer Language Arts Program is a 5-week program that runs from July 1 - August 2. (Closed July 4 and July 5.) The TA hours are 7:45am - 12:45pm daily.
Teaching Assistants support Summer Language Arts Teachers in all aspects of the Language Arts Program. An Education Degree is a plus, but not necessary. This is a great opportunity for college juniors and seniors to gain classroom experience.
About Benchmark School
Benchmark School is truly an amazing place to be. It is filled with creative students, supportive parents, and gifted staff members. It is both energizing and deeply fulfilling to help students grow as learners and individuals and then watch as they go on to thrive in school and life. There is nothing better than being committed to a meaningful mission and knowing that you are helping to transform students’ futures by empowering them to succeed.
Founded in 1970, Benchmark School is an internationally recognized independent, co-educational day school committed to helping bright students in grades 1-8 who learn differently (e.g., dyslexia, executive functioning difficulties, ADHD) or have yet to reach their full academic potential. It is located on a beautiful 23-acre wooded campus in Media, PA, approximately 13 miles west of Philadelphia.
Benchmark’s mission is to help our students develop into confident and strategic thinkers, learners, and problem-solvers who take control of their learning. Defining characteristics of the school include our fundamental commitment to excellence, professional development, and research-based innovation. As a result of these emphases, our gradu...ates are self-advocates who approach tasks strategically, think flexibly, demonstrate persistence and resilience, and meet with success in school and in life.
