The New Mexico Public Education Department is looking for talented Level II and IIIA Career & Technical Education (CTE), Computer Science, Health Education, and Physical Education, educators to fill the roles of review team leader and reviewer of record for the 7-12 CTE and K-12 Computer Science, Health Education, and Physical Education instructional material review teams. Core instructional materials for grades 7-12 CTE and K-12 Computer Science, Health Education, and Physical Education will be reviewed June 12-23, 2023 (dates subject to change), with training occurring before the Institute. The review is a rigorous process in which highly qualified teachers review instructional materials for alignment with New Mexico standards and criteria for high quality. Previous reviewers have said the experience deepened their knowledge of the standards and gave them a clearer understanding of what high quality materials should look like. This work is also of great value to the entire state.

A stipend will be provided commensurate with the work completed.

The application deadline is Jan. 30.
