2021 Instructor applications are now closed.
Kode With Klossy, in partnership with Teach For America, is looking for instructors who are passionate about teaching and inspiring others. Kode With Klossy instructors have some exposure and/or experience with computer science and are willing to step out of their comfort zones to learn something new and exciting. We look for logical thinkers and quick learners, and instructors who love working with others (all of our classes are co-taught). Most of all, we are looking for instructors who see the best in others, and can bring fun, passion and excitement to the classroom to motivate the next generation of tech leaders. Teaching experience required.
