Organization: Irvine Nature Center
Job Type: Part-Time
Location: Owings Mills, Maryland
Salary: $16.50 per hour
We are currently hiring a part-time educator to assist in our Forest Explorers homeschool classes. With their co-teacher, Forest Explorer teachers facilitate mainly outdoor classes that nurture a child’s connection with and understanding of the natural world through developmentally appropriate play, trail walks and games, land art, nature-study, and child-led discovery. Teachers create communities in which students feel safe to be themselves, take risks, and develop skills at their own pace. They encourage students to ask questions, explore, and take the lead.

The ideal candidate will have a variety of life experiences and skillsets in local naturalist knowledge, nature-based learning, emergent curriculum, and practical outdoors skills. This individual must also be dedicated to personal self-reflection and evaluation of their pedagogy while ECE staff continue their journey in anti-bias work to improve ourselves and programming.
