Job Posting: K12 Project Coaches for E3 Project
Insight Education Group is an international educational consulting company that works with education leaders to develop the strategy and confidence to lead bold change—and provides the boots on the ground to make it happen.
As former teachers, coaches, school leaders and high-level district and state administrators, we appreciate the challenges, nuances, and opportunities of implementing large-scale change and we know the keys to making them stick.

- successfully turning around chronically under-performing schools,
- training aspiring and current leaders to be strategic and get the right things done, and
- helping to change the culture of teacher growth to one of trust.
