Al Ittihad Private School Jumeira is a CIS/NEASC accredited private school serving over 2400  students (mainly Emirati students) from Pre-KG to grade 12. We are rated a "Good" school by KHDA and we follow the American curriculum (California Standards & Common Core Standards). We have a beautiful campus in the heart of Jumeirah. The school's vision focuses on two main parts: maintining heritage and global thinking.

The Literacy Instructional Coach will provide instructional support and coaching to teachers as they work to ensure that each student is able to reach his or her academic potential. The Literacy Instructional Coach’s primary role is to lead building efforts to increase literacy achievement for all student populations and work with teachers to support best practices in using data, provide analysis of school-wide trends in instruction, and make recommendations about potential next steps to address areas of need. As an advisor to teachers and the leadership team, the Literacy Instructional Coach is responsible for four main areas: a) observing instructional delivery and providing feedback to enhance and support the development of each teacher's content area b) supporting teachers in the design of units and lessons for the development of their year-long curriculum, c) analyzing data in order to modify curriculum and forms of assessment to meet students' needs, and d) working with the academic staff (grade level leaders, assistant principals, principals) in the school to support sharing of best practices. 

The Literacy Instructional Coach must take a hands-on approach to improving instruction and effectiveness by working at various grade levels (1-8) to directly improve English Language Learner literacy skills, student learning, and foster teacher development. This may include modeling lessons in classrooms, helping teacher groups plan instruction, creating system-wide literacy policies and procedures, and facilitating professional development.
