    Expanded Impact Teacher:

    The Expanded Impact Teacher plans and delivers in-person instruction for multiple classes in a school where students rotate between a paraprofessional and the expanded impact teacher. While one class of students works with a paraprofessional to cover basic knowledge and skills, the Expanded Impact Teacher teaches another class of students, focusing on delivering personalized and enriched instruction. The teacher is responsible for planning, preparing, and delivering instruction, and monitoring student progress to determine instructional needs. The teacher is also responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of the paraprofessional’s instruction and making or recommending changes. The teacher collaborates with team members, such as other teachers, tutors, and assistant teachers, to review student progress and change instruction as needed to ensure high-progress, enriched learning for every child. The team leader variation combines this role with multi-classroom leadership, and includes input into choosing and managing team members and digital resources.
