Debate Coach Position - North Star Academy, Newark NJ
« on: March 27, 2014, 02:20:34 PM »
North Star Academy is a high-achieving charter school in Newark, New Jersey, and is looking for a full time speech and debate instructor. This position is both a coaching and teaching position, as debate is an elective class at North Star in addition to a team. The chosen applicant may also be asked to teach a section of US History II for seniors. While previous competitive debate experience is required, teaching experience is not. North Star houses an internal certification and training program for new teachers that interested applicants can elect to take in the event they are not certified. The team currently competes in Lincoln Douglas and speech events, though interested applicants should feel free to take the team in a different direction if they prefer. North Star is committed to having an active debate program, and will invest greatly in applicants who show desire to build the team.

Interested candidates can contact the current coach, Jessica Ehmke, with any questions at, or apply directly at
