Coursemojo is a leading ed-tech company that helps districts and schools address staffing shortages and expand their course offerings through hybrid courses. Our mission is to radically expand access to education for middle and high school students. By offering hybrid courses, training, guidance, and strategic support, Coursemojo empowers districts to create sustainable, high-quality education models for the future. 

Note: While we do not have any known Physics openings right now, you may express interest in our part-time (1099 contract) Physics teacher position should our needs change and if you would like to be considered. 

Why is this role important?

Our online teachers deliver and teach high-quality courses to our district and school partners. They are experts in online facilitation and in their content area, and they typically teach 5-6 hours per day, depending on their course load and our partner schools’ schedules. They prepare and lead lessons, and they regularly collaborate with in-person “learning coaches” at our partner schools to provide a hybrid experience where students learn a lot and love their experience. 

This is a part-time (1099 contract) role for the 2023-24 school year, and candidates can express how many sections they can commit to for a given year. In a typical week for one section, online teachers can anticipate their core work is teaching (about 5 hours) and planning/grading (about 2 hours). Online teachers also engage in coaching, professional development, and recurring team meetings (typically one hour on average per week, though it varies week-to-week).

The ideal candidate is passionate about delivering inspiring and meaningful learning experiences to students through technology and has experience teaching in a virtual or hybrid environment. Additionally, the ideal candidate is enthusiastic about learning, growing, and developing within an early-stage ed-tech startup. This position will require ongoing collaboration with the on-site learning coaches, school-based staff, and other Coursemojo colleagues.

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
