REQUIREMENTS (TEACHER & ASSISTANT)
Our after school program, Toyology: Science Through Toys, is seeking part-time TEACHERS and ASSISTANTS to facilitate learning in local elementary schools throughout the East Bay and San Francisco. Multiple positions are available for the upcoming school year. This job is a perfect opportunity for college students, teachers in training programs, retired teachers, and individuals who love working with children. This job will provide you with the skills to teach science in a fun, hands-on, and dynamic way.
Toyologists learn on the job classroom management skills, and practice the warm and fuzzy Sarah’s Science approach to teaching and interacting with children. We foster an inclusive and positive learning environment by ensuring that every student builds a working toy based on our science lesson during every class.
Those who wish to join our team must have demonstrated leadership/teaching experience, excellent communication skills, and a positive and energetic attitude. Experience working with children is a must. A background in science is not necessary; we will provide you with all of the necessary training. You MUST have your own car and be reliable. Upon being hired, you must be willing to pay for and obtain Live Scan clearances (fingerprinting background checks) and receive a negative TB-Test result both of which are eligible for reimbursement after the completion of a full session.
Founded in 1987 by Sarah Shaffer, our goal at Sarah's Science is to provide kids ages 5-15 a unique and exciting approach to learning about the wonderful world of science and nature. We offer kids a joyous experience and show them that learning can be fun and easy.
Our programs feature hands-on projects built by each child to engage and delight them while making it easy to understand even complex science concepts. We strive to make our projects fun while providing a great educational experience to our students.
We offer after school classes, various camps during school breaks, as well as evening and weekend workshops all throughout the Bay Area.
