Communications Associate

Math for America is the best place to work with Math and Science Teachers in the City of New York.

  • MƒA teachers love our work.
    The 1000+ teachers with MƒA fellowships consistently report that MƒA is an organization that trusts and values teachers. We don’t mandate what teachers MUST do or SHOULD do. We provide a wealth of high-quality learning opportunities designed with and by teachers. We provide teachers with choice to forge their own path and to set their own goals for growth and engagement. Teachers are #MfAProud because they know we are working alongside them to change the national conversation about teaching.

  • MƒA staff are talented, driven, inquisitive learners who ask questions first and value learning from one another.
    MƒA staff believe in the mission of MƒA and are committed to supporting the important work done by teachers every day. We know education is a changing landscape so we take time to listen and learn from one another and from the teachers we work with. We take our own leadership and learning seriously, and we stay current and engaged in local, city, and national convenings in math and science education. We are a dynamic, committed, and engaged group, so lunchtime conversation is never dull!

  • MƒA builds a positive office culture and community.
    MƒA offices are conveniently located in the Flatiron section of Manhattan. Our offices are modern and spacious. We think working in a beautiful place with people you like is important. Employees generally work a 40 hour of week with ample flexibility and PTO. We believe in taking time for organizational retreats and social time together. At the same time, our staff all have rich lives outside of work. We think a good work-life balance makes us a stronger team.

  • MƒA values collaboration.
    We know our staff are smart responsible professionals, and we believe that everyone should have a seat at the table when making decisions. We work together to set ambitious goals but don’t seek to micro-manage. Rather, we balance shared decision making with everyone’s desire for autonomy and independence within and across our department teams.

  • MƒA is a non-profit focused on service, not fundraising.
    MƒA is primarily funded through a generous endowment from the Simons Foundation. The primary benefit is that our team focuses on work, not money. Other nonprofits spend a significant amount of time trying to solicit funds. We don’t. We spend all our time building and running the best science and math teacher fellowship in the nation.


MƒA is an equal opportunity employer. Our goal is to maintain a highly diverse staff in an inclusive and progressive working environment that is representative and respectful of the teacher community we serve. We celebrate, support, and thrive on recruiting, developing, and retaining the most talented people from a diverse candidate pool. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

I am the teacher that I am today in part because of the opportunities that MƒA provides me. I have learned from my peers by sharing best practices and resources. It has been such a positive experience.
