Just got this via email:
Word of mouth is a great recruiting tool, so I am inviting everyone in Houston to help HISD recruit tutors for its groundbreaking Apollo 20 school turn-around project.
To join Team HISD as an Apollo 20 Math Fellow, a candidate needs to have a bachelor’s degree and strong math skills, and like working with young people. Successful applicants will work with small groups of sixth- or ninth-grade students each school day at HISD priority schools. For their 10-month commitment to helping students to be successful, Apollo 20 Math Fellows will receive a $20,000 salary and benefits (including health-care coverage). They will also be eligible for a performance and attendance bonus of up to $5,000.
Education is key to the success of Houston’s young people and the entire Houston community. This is a great chance for you or someone you know to make a difference in our students’ lives. We are waiting to hear from you!
Terry B. Grier, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
