Gesell Institute Part-Time Job Opportunity: Parent-Teacher Liaison

We are seeking 2-3 individuals to serve as Parent-Teacher Liaisons on a grant-funded

program being run in collaboration with the New Haven Public Schools. At least one bilingual

English/Spanish speaker will be required. Liaisons work as part of a team on an initiative

working with preschools and families of four-year-olds in New Haven through the Parent-

Teacher Connection Program (P-TCP).

Liaisons work together to conduct classroom observations, teacher meetings, and home

visits. Training, oversight, and administrative aspects of the work are coordinated through a

centralized office at Gesell Institute on Prospect Street in New Haven, but the majority of the

work is in the field, with parents, teachers, and children at three early childhood locations in

New Haven.

Liaisons are also expected to write case summaries, prepare for home visits or teacher

meetings independently, attend ongoing training and regular team meetings, and enter data

into SPSS. An initial on-site program training will be provided and paid, and will likely span at

least one full working day.

Pending contract and final budget approval, these positions will be funded through June 2011.

These part-time positions are ideal for graduate students or community members seeking 10-

30 hours per week of an applied research experience.

Job requirements

Skills and abilities for this work include excellent interpersonal and communication skills;

exceptional interviewing and telephone skills; meticulous organizational skills; persistence;

and the ability to multi-task, troubleshoot, and work well both independently and on a team.

Spanish language skills are a major plus. Because this position requires travel, a valid driver’s

license and a reliable vehicle available for regular use is preferred, though most locations

should be accessible by public transportation.

Hours, compensation, and benefits

Some evening and weekend hours will be necessary, but variable based on the schedules

and needs of program participants. Hired as hourly employees, liaisons may work between 10

and 30 hours per week, with the potential for more or less some weeks. For the most part,

liaisons set their own hours, scheduling visits directly with teachers and parents around

mutual availability. Pay rates range between $13 and $17 per hour, commensurate with skills

and experience. Fringe benefits are not available for these positions. Mileage for home visits

is reimbursed; the office environment is excellent and the work rewarding; and training,

preparation, and travel time for classroom and home visits is paid.

For more information or to apply for this position

Please send an e-mail inquiry with subject line “P-TCP Liaison Position” and current resumé

attached to Marina Pappas, Project Coordinator for the P-TCP. Applications will be reviewed

as received and interviews will be scheduled with the most qualified candidates in late April or

early May. Anticipated start dates will be in mid May or early June.

Seeing Rural America Through a Clearer Lens

In an interview with Shelterforce editor Miriam Axel-Lute, Jim King of FAHE in Appalachia and Bill Bynum of HOPE in the Mississippi Delta, two longtime LISC partners, discuss the challenge of persistent poverty in rural communities. Investing in rural areas—and dispelling stereotypes about them—they argue, is critical for the health of the entire country.

The Warmth of Family, the Taste of Mexico

We launch our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month this year with the story of the Villegas family, owners of Los Originales Tacos Árabes de Puebla in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Natives of Puebla, Mexico, Merced and Alfredo Villegas run one of the city’s most beloved food trucks, and are emblematic of Hispanic immigrants to the U.S. who have not only enriched the cultural, social—and culinary—terrain of this country, but stoke the economy through their energetic entrepreneurship, creativity and resilience.
