Our Class Garden Educators use nature-based lessons and activities to teach students in first through fourth grades during the school day. These are regular seasonal, part-time positions that work weekly generally from late August to early November, mid-March to early June, and one week in January. Weekly work hours can be as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours depending on your availability and our schedule.
We currently have openings on school campuses in Loveland and at Stewart Elementary School in Sharonville.
Teaching and/or gardening experience is helpful but not necessary. We provide a schedule of activities and detailed lessons, as well as on-going training to insure you are prepared to lead classes. The ideal candidate enjoys interacting with children, is dependable, organized, and enthusiastic, and likes working outdoors. It is a plus if the candidate has experience working with large groups of children, has teaching experience and/or some hands-on knowledge about gardening.
