21st Century Teachers Network Now Hiring!

The 21st Century Teachers Network <http://www.21ct.org> is a growing
movement of teacher leaders helping themselves and their colleagues develop
new skills for using technology in their teaching and learning
environments. Over 6,000 teachers have already volunteered; over 100,000
will eventually be recruited. 21st Century Teachers was announced by the
President, is supported by leading education organizations, and is guided
by The McGuffey Project. The McGuffey Project is a non-profit organization
committed to the effective integration of technology in the classroom. We
are looking to hire dynamic leaders to lead this effort and fill these
positions immediately.


Project Director - The Project Director will oversee all aspects of the
21st Century Teachers Network. This person should have experience leading a
non-profit organization or directing an extensive education project. While

communicate effectively with others inside and outside educational
constituencies and direct staff. This person will require boundless
enthusiasm, strong leadership skills, and the ability to build an
organization from the ground up.

Director of Development - The Director of Development will be primarily
focused on raising resources to meet the Project's budget, helping build
the Board of Directors, and soliciting contributions from a wide variety of

as software resources, rewards for 21CT Network members, office space for
group leaders, use of training facilities, etc.

Government Resources Coordinator - This senior level position will have
two primary roles with the Network: 1) keeping federal, state, and local
public leaders informed about the success of the Network and get them

Network's Intranet and outreach functions.

central outreach and support representative from the Network to Opportunity
Group leaders. They will work closely to develop programs and provide
materials for group leaders, coordinate events in the field, recruit

(particularly in states), and develop partnerships in the field with public
and private programs.

aspects of the user documentation and content portions of the Intranet site
("Site Editor"). In addition to building content, events, and activities
into the site, this person will work to ensure that all users can access
and find value in their use of this community. This position will require
strong Web-based skills such as knowledge of HTML, as well as experience
working with education technology Web sites.
