The DCPS Office of Human Capital establishes and implements the strategic priorities for the recruitment, selection, evaluation, development, and retention of outstanding employees across DCPS, including school-based leaders, educators and administrators, and central office staff members. The Office of Human Capital consists of four divisions focused on Principal Effectiveness, Teacher Effectiveness, Central Office Effectiveness, and Human Resources.
The Division of Teacher Effectiveness works to ensure that a highly effective teacher is in every DCPS classroom. Comprised of two teams – Teacher Effectiveness Strategy and IMPACT – this division is on the cutting edge of the national education policy landscape, looking at teacher and school-based staff quality across our schools.
As part of the IMPACT team, Master Educators work to operationalize the IMPACT performance assessment system by evaluating the instructional performance of teachers in the district. Master Educators have three primary responsibilities: 1) to serve as impartial, third-party evaluators of teacher performance, 2) to provide teachers with targeted, content-specific feedback and resources and 3) to provide instructional capacity to support DCPS reform initiatives.

- Writing detailed reports to accompany each observation. Reports will include explanations of the teacher's ratings, evidence, and suggestions for growth.
- Conducting one-on-one post-observation conferences with all observed teachers which allow opportunity to dialogue about specific areas of development.
- Providing targeted professional development to teachers by providing clear and direct feedback, leading content-specific professional development workshops, and connecting teachers with professional development resources.
- Collaborating with other DCPS departments to further support implementation of the DCPS academic plan, including curricular and professional development design.
- Collaborating with other members of the Teacher Effectiveness team to reach programmatic goals, including school outreach and master educator recruitment and selection efforts.
- Attending meetings and on-going trainings as required.
- Performing other duties as assigned.
- At least 5 years of teaching experience in a low-income school;
- Documented evidence of success raising student achievement in a low-income school;
- Exceptional writing and oral communication skills;
- The ability to work effectively with others at all levels of an organization and to consistently display a high level of professionalism in all interactions;
- An ability to critically assess challenges and identify appropriate solutions;
- Strong organizational skills, including keen attention to detail and the ability to adhere to strict deadlines;
- Excellent time-management and a willingness to work non-standard hours;
- Ability to work in ambiguous situations, while maintaining a sense of possibility;
- Previous experience developing and providing support and training to other educators (preferred);
- Knowledge of adult learner theory (preferred);
- Comfort working with Microsoft Office suite (preferred).
The Master Educator is a DCPS employee who primarily works in the field, conducting observations of, and conferencing with, teachers across the District of Columbia Public Schools system. The position therefore requires significant travel within the city. Master Educators will also work as 12-month employees of DC Public Schools.
The starting salary for the Master Educator role is $90,000. In addition, Master Educators receive a comprehensive benefits package through the Council of School Officers union, which includes health, dental, and vision benefits.
