Avalon School is seeking a high school policy debate coach! We are a small, project-based learning, teacher-led 6-12 grade charter school located in St. Paul, MN. We started our team in 2016-17 with 2 novice teams and now seek to grow into a full team this year. We are looking for a high energy, passionate debate coach to help us build our program! Avalon students are a diverse, creative, action-oriented and thoughtful group of young people who want to change the world. Debate is right up our alley! We seek a coach for 2-4 hours per week, plus 5-6 tournaments. We have parents that are willing to help with administrative tasks and transportation. Avalon students may receive academic credit for debate if they structure it as an independent project, opening up time during the school day for debate practices and individual preparation.
Ideally we’d like to find an experienced policy debate coach, but we are open to applicants with the relevant skills and debate experience. Please see attached job description, and visit www.avalonschool.org to learn more about our school. Interested applicants should submit a resume and letter outlining experience and skills relevant to our position to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
