A Lead Teacher’s responsibilities include:

  • Execution of lessons and activities
  • Teaching lessons and leading activities
  • Modifying lessons as necessary
  • Setting up and cleaning up after each program
  • Communication with Counselors-in-Training (CITs)

  • Updating the Education Coordinator about CITs performance
  • Notifying the Education Coordinator of any issues with program participants

This position pays $11 per hour. Lead Teachers are expected to work Monday to Friday for the eight weeks of our summer farm education programming (running from June 24 to August 23, but NOT including July 1 – 5) and, if possible though not required, the week of April vacation (April 15 – 19). Morning programs shifts will run from 8:30am – 12:30pm (students present from 9am – 12pm) and afternoon sessions will run from 12:30pm – 5:30pm (students present from 1pm – 5pm). Our expectation is that a Lead Teacher would work at least all morning OR afternoon sessions, if not both morning AND afternoon sessions, during the eight week summer program period. On-site housing is NOT available, though there are affordable accommodations nearby.
