ESL and Digital Literacy Instructor

Posted by SEAMAAC on January 29, 2019

SEAMAAC welcomes applications for the position of ESL and Digital Literacy Instructor. SEAMAAC is a nonprofit organization in Philadelphia, with the mission “To support and serve immigrants and refugees and other politically, socially and economically marginalized communities as they seek to advance the condition of their lives in the United States.” SEAMAAC envisions a strong and unified society, where immigrants and refugees work alongside other Americans to build shared political, economic and social power. We envision a community where the contributions of each generation of Americans, whether Native to this land, immigrant, or brought against their will, are equally acknowledged, valued and embraced, and where all people live whole, healthy lives with joy and dignity.

SEAMAAC offers adult education classes including weekly English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, English For Citizenship Classes, and Digital Literacy Classes. These activities are held at SEAMAAC’s Community Outreach Office in Southeast Philadelphia. All students are non-native English speakers who come from various countries and have various degrees of English ability. The ESL and Digital Literacy Instructor will market and recruit for classes, write and implement lesson plans, facilitate classroom instruction, conduct pre and post-testing of students, maintain student records, collaborate with volunteers, and enter program data into our organizational database. All students are screened at registration to determine which class level is most appropriate for them. The Instructor will teach these classes and oversee the computer lab. Each class consists of one 1.5-hour session weekly for the duration of 12-week cycles, and the number of classes offered during each class cycle could vary depending on the availability of funding.
