Apply for this job


At Avondale Meadows Middle School (AMMS), we believe all children deserve access to high quality educational opportunities. Many neighborhoods in the city of Indianapolis lack excellent school options. Together, we’re providing an equitable education that will ensure our scholars are prepared for college and beyond. We’re looking for mission-driven individuals who are committed to student success.


AMMS is looking for a skilled, knowledgeable team member dedicated to helping all students succeed in our school. This person may work in 5th-8th grade classrooms as well as within the resource/special education room, supporting students with varying levels of need and disabilities. The special education assistant will collaborate closely with resource teachers to support behavior and academic needs with a focus on providing students meaningful access to the core curriculum and the educational environment. They will assist in the preparation of instructional materials and implementation of lesson plans and provide routine support. 


An ideal candidate excels in relationship building and has the desire to be a part of a larger team to support kids. At AMMS there is a strong focus on collaboration, so it is essential that all team members are reliable, timely, and punctual with all expected assignments and duties. The special education assistant should have a strong desire to learn best practices in providing social, emotional, and academic support to students. Oftentimes the special education assistant will be tasked with thinking outside of the box to help develop solutions for students who struggle to meet behavioral or academic expectations. A candidate excited to help provide opportunities for success to all students is encouraged to apply.



The ideal candidate for this position will meet the following qualifications:

  • An associates degree or equivalent work experience
  • Experience working with children, especially students who have struggled to build the academic or behavioral skills fundamental to school success
  • The management tools and the temperament necessary to provide diverse students at varying skill levels with a safe, supportive environment to grow and do their best work
  • Experience involving families (parents, grandparents and guardians) as well as the community in support of children’s academic and social development
  • Excellent writing and overall communication skills
  • A cooperative, energetic disposition and capacity to work in concert with a team
  • The capacity to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment relentlessly focused on high standards and achieving ambitious goals for our young students
