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.
We are hiring additional smart, creative, dynamic LEGO® Engineering Instructors to deliver our great programs throughout the Atlanta area, with current highest needs including Atlanta, Decatur, Druid Hills, Sandy Springs. 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 and some weekends a must, full weekdays during summer.
- Experience and passion teaching K-8 students in a classroom or summer camp setting. Aftercare program experience welcome!
- STEM related coursework or experience a plus but not required - we provide training!
- Must have a reliable vehicle to transport teaching materials and commute to teaching sites.
- Pre-employment background check is required.
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.
- Part-time: 15 - 20 hours/week
- Training rate: $14.50/hour
- Regular rate: $16.50/hour
- Compensation includes drive time, setup and instruction hours
