Job description

Great Minds, a rapidly growing challenger brand in the PK-12 instructional materials space, seeks experienced Wit & Wisdom PD Fellows to join our dynamic Humanities team.

COMPANY PROFILE

Great Minds, a mission driven Public Benefit Corporation, brings teachers and scholars together to craft exemplary instructional materials that inspire joy in teaching and learning. Our English curriculum, Wit & Wisdom®, Eureka Math™ and PhD Science™, all support teachers as they take students beyond rote learning to provide a deeper, more complete understanding of the humanities, mathematics, and the sciences.

OUR MARKET POSITION
