9 Dots is a Los Angeles based community of educators, researchers, and engineers aiming to provide K-6 students from Title I elementary schools with the opportunity to engage in a transformative computer science (CS) education. We are especially committed to creating empowering CS experiences for our female, Latinx, Black, and low-income students. We create learning environments that engage every student, foster joy and promote fearlessness in problem solving. And we build sustainably by providing teachers with the support and tools they need to lead exceptional computer science learning experiences.
As a Computer Science Education Fellow, you would be a key player in our direct service offering. You would have the opportunity to:
1. Teach computer science to elementary school students in LA county
2. Support public school teachers as they build their own capacity to teach computer science.
This is a 2 year full-time non-exempt fellowship with full benefits and an optional extension year(s). This opportunity is best suited for outstanding recent graduates and/or new professionals - of all academic majors and career backgrounds - who commit to supporting CS education in Los Angeles-area public schools. We provide all of the professional development and training you will need to teach computer science and support other teachers along the way. You will learn CS fundamentals and advanced instructional techniques in order to support site teachers at our partner schools.
