SUMMARY

With the world changing so rapidly, one thing has remained constant: the importance of education. Children at a young age need well-trained, experienced teachers to develop the fundamental skills that will enable them to tackle more complex problems as they get older. Meanwhile, research has shown that to deliver excellent pedagogy requires not just a practicum of knowledge but also extensive apprenticeship. Thus, institutions that provide both theoretical and experiential training to future elementary school teachers fill a critical role in the larger educational ecosystem.

The Bay Area Teacher Training Institute (BATTI), based in Oakland, California, is a shining example of this complementary approach to teacher training. For two decades, nearly 500 aspiring educators have graduated with a master's degree and multiple-subject credential after two years of intense classroom study and on-the-job mentoring. Since its inception, BATTI has benefited from the able leadership of its founding executive director, who will retire next June after nearly twenty years on the job. Now, BATTI seeks an executive director with not only a passion and expertise for teacher development, but also a systematic and relational mindset for running and growing an association of partner schools, teacher residents, and university instructors. This one-of-a-kind position starts July 1, 2021 and reports to the board of directors.
