Position in Detail:
Interns will serve as assistant instructors for math or English (just one subject area of focus) based classes supporting a veteran teacher in the classroom. Interns will have the opportunity to create lessons plans for daily "warm up" exercises, gaining teaching experience while receiving feedback from experienced teachers. All interns will work closely with the Education Director to help creat effective and engaging summer courses. Interns will also serve as mentors for approximately 15 youth, tracking their progress and chaperoning weekly field trips.
Enthusiastic and caring with a specific interest in education or youth development. Math or English teaching interns should have a strong background in the respective subject, preferably through tutoring or even teaching the subject. Interns should have a experience working with youth (ideally with students between the ages of 11 and 19). Teaching and classroom management experience is a plus but not a requirement. This internship is ideal for graduate education students looking for classroom experience or undergraduate education students considering a career in education. No soccer background necessary.
