Background: The Administration is seeking position authority for the position of emerging educator.

A Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) emerging educator provides an instructional program for students which is appropriate to their educational needs and developmental levels. The employee is responsible for implementing the lesson plans of the teacher whom he/she is replacing and for meeting the duties of teaching as outlined in the policies and procedures of MPS. The emerging educator participates as an integral member of the instructional team to include tutoring students, assisting in documentation of pupils' progress, and preparation and organization of materials and equipment for instruction. The emerging educator is assigned to a specific school for the duration of the school year, filling in vacancies within that school for up to ten (10) school days per classroom/assignment.

The emerging educators are not teachers of record, but are emerging educators in a teacher-degree-and-licensure program and hold substitute teacher's licenses with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

The position description is attached.
