Are you a tinkerer? Do you enjoy taking things apart and then putting them back together? How about playing with LEGO®? Would you like to use a ridiculous amount of LEGO® materials to teach kids how the world works? If so, then this may be your dream job!
Play-Well TEKnologies (http://www.play-well.org) is an educational enrichment company that introduces children in grades K-8 to STEM concepts using LEGO® components.
Our smart, creative, dynamic LEGO® Engineering Instructors deliver our great programs throughout the state with current highest needs throughout the Boston and South Shore area. This part-time position includes teaching daily after-school programs with some weekend birthday parties throughout the school year, and full day camp programs during the summer.
Buckle up - this is hard work! Lugging 40 pound totes in and out of your car, leading excited kids through challenging projects, managing classroom conflicts, cleaning up all that LEGO® - this will be the toughest job you'll ever love!
Availability during weekday afternoons (must be available 3 or more afternoons per week) and some weekends during school year, full weekdays during summer months.
Experience and passion teaching K-8 students in a classroom or summer camp setting.
STEAM experience or coursework a plus but not required - we provide paid training!
Must have a reliable vehicle to transport teaching materials and commute to teaching sites.
Pre-employment background check is required.
Part-time: 15 - 20 hours/week (more during summer)
Training rate: $16/hour
Regular rate: $18/hour
Compensation includes drive time, setup and instruction hours
We highly value our teaching staff, and pay for time spent driving to a site that's farther than 30 minutes away. We also pay a 3 hour daily class minimum rather than just the hour or so spent in the classroom.
