Orange County Department of Education
Application Deadline: 3/5/2014 12:00 AM Pacific
We are currently recruiting for energetic professionals to serve as Instructors for the OCDE Inside the Outdoors - Outdoor Science School (OSS) Program. OSS offers four and five day overnight programs for fifth and sixth grade students at various sites in the San Bernardino Mountains. Our sites are adjacent to the San Bernardino National Forest and provide a unique opportunity to study the natural environment. We place emphasis on earth and life sciences, environmental study, and related activities that enrich normal classroom programs. The week long experience also provides an ideal atmosphere for the development of social skills and self-esteem. Both students and teachers leave OSS knowing more about the natural world and themselves. Our Instructors are responsible for supervising and monitoring an assigned group of visiting fifth and sixth grade students attending our week long program. In addition to leading hikes on nature trails and providing science instruction, our instructors engage students in a variety of craft, recreational, and camp like experiences. Our programs run from September to June and our Instructors live on-site during camp operations, EXCLUDING HOLIDAYS AND WEEKENDS. We currently have openings at various sites and this recruitment will be open until all positions have been filled. For more information, please visit www.insidetheoutdoors.org. We thank you for your interest and look forward to receiving your application.
