About

The E3 Master Teacher position is to be a facilitator between the E3 Team, E3 Faculty and the E3 Teachers. The Master Teacher should be able to draw from his/her own useful experience – in that the Master Teacher possesses prior experiences that are relevant to what the E3 teachers will encounter during the summer program and after in their classes. As such, the Master Teacher needs to be able to help lead the program and give knowledgeable advice throughout the experience because sometimes the vision of the program might not be clear to the E3 teacher. The Master Teacher will draw on those prior experiences to convey the vision of the program. The Master Teacher must be able to adapt curricular advice to E3 teachers who teach subjects other than those of the Master Teacher (e.g., a Master Teacher certified in math should be able to advise an E3 teacher certified in the sciences or career and technical education). The Master Teacher needs to be enthusiastic and approachable, have strong communication skills enabling the Master Teacher to “speak the language of education” when communicating with the participants. The Master Teacher must be a good problem solver and also have the ability to educationally triage participants so that those in need of timely help receive the support that they need to minimize the stress that they will encounter in the research lab.
