Job Description:

Here at LearnWell, weve dedicated ourselves to making a life-changing impact on the 10 million students currently in the U.S. who live with some type of behavioral health need (depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, eating disorder, substance use). For nearly 25 years, we have provided on-site instructional services within the hospital setting, helping students to continue their academic progress during treatment and successfully reenter the classroom. LearnWell has a network of 180+ dedicated educators that commit themselves daily to embracing our mission and positively impacting generations to come.

LearnWell is currently looking for our next creative and passionate teacher to fill a school year position in New Britain, CT. The certified teacher will be teaching core subjects to a small group of students. All students have a primary autism diagnosis, but we could also see a wide range of the behaviors on that spectrum as well. Facility staff will be present at all times during class to provide additional support that falls outside the scope of educational instruction. Your main responsibility will be to assist students with their academics while they are unable to attend their traditional schools. You will not be required to attend any IEP or parent meetings of any kind. All schoolwork and progress notes will be sent back to the corresponding school district.

Help students one-on-one if extra assistance is needed on their individual school curriculum

Communicate necessary information regularly to students, hospital and parents regarding student progress and student needs
Encourage and monitor the progress of individual students and use information to adjust teaching strategies
Updating daily attendance and creating daily session reports for each student

Most Common Diagnosis: Autism, Depression, Anxiety, ODD, ADHD
Position entails a 40 hour a week commitment. Schedule is Monday-Friday from 7:30-4:00pm. We offer a very generous package of paid time off including vacation time, sick time, federal holidays, and paid school breaks. We also offer healthcare benefits that include medical, dental, and vision. Additional benefits include paid family leave options, 401K, employer sponsored life insurance policies, and annual grants for tuition reimbursement.
