TransformEd is Currently Hiring

Whole Child Development Specialist

Transforming Education (TransformEd) seeks an expert in whole child development and the science of learning to effectively translate research findings to actionable guidance to support educators in fostering the development of the whole child so that all students, particularly those from underserved populations, can thrive. The Whole Child Development Specialist will serve as an internal expert, providing colleagues with relevant and evidence-based information to support their work in the field, while also ensuring that all field-facing materials have a lens of equity, inclusion, and anti-racist practice to support systems-level change in districts and schools nationwide.

This is a full-time, remote role; salary is expected to be $75,000 – $90,000. While experience as a classroom educator is valuable, the ideal candidate will have direct experience translating research findings into actionable guidance for educators across multiple schools / districts.

After further reflection, we decided to modify the original Practice Specialist position and have replaced it with this Whole Child Development Specialist position. If you applied for the original Practice Specialist position at TransformEd, we have received your application and will review it for this updated position description. There is no need to re-apply.
