The Role  

Newsela recently released three more products and is poised to quadruple their customer base. The Professional Learning Manager’s role in this is to collaborate with a team to reimagine what virtual professional learning looks like to drive engagement at scale.  You will work with a portfolio of Newsela’s largest and most complex clients by building relationships with district leaders and providing instructional support to all educators. You will also be an advocate for your customers within Newsela, helping provide product and customer insights, along with your own pedagogical knowledge, to drive greater user engagement. You’ll have the opportunity to develop and deliver professional learning services to all Newsela educators, and champion the best ways for them to get the most out of Newsela through your in-person sessions, webinars, videos, and online courses.

Why You’ll Love This Role

You’ll have the opportunity to utilize your teaching experience, but apply it to a larger audience by helping teachers seamlessly infuse technology into their instructional practice. Educators are always looking for ways to freshen up their lessons, and this role will allow you to experiment with different professional learning sessions based on educator needs and industry best practices. Your work will directly enable educators to deliver authentic, relevant, accessible learning content in their classrooms to over 20 million students nationwide.

Why We’ll Love You

You love presenting to audiences of all sizes, and know how to tactfully leverage your own 3+ years of teaching expertise (ideally in Social Studies) to relate to groups of educators and administrators. You build genuine relationships with customers, and strive to deliver a personalized customer experience to each client in your portfolio. You’re comfortable re-calibrating your approach based on customer needs. A data-driven decision-maker, you draw on your pedagogical knowledge to inform customer interactions and professional development strategy, and you’re always on a quest to find new and effective ways for educators to better serve the needs of their students. You aren’t afraid to think outside the box to help educators break old habits and infuse Newsela into their daily instruction. 

About Newsela
