STEM Teacher | Part Time | Beginning 2019-2020 Academic Year

Pinewood School is looking for a part-time STEM teacher with experience in coding and design/engineering instruction at the K-6 Level. In this role you would be the primary teacher in grades 3-6 for our Coding classes during one semester, and our Design/Engineering classes during a second semester. Our Coding class focuses primarily on block-based programming instruction using Scratch, Blockly, Swift, and other similar languages. Our Design/Engineering course focuses on the design-thinking process, knowledge of maker-oriented tools and software, and design using TinkerCAD, 3D printers, and laser cutters. In addition to these core courses, the STEM teacher would be responsible for supporting two after-school clubs, one related to robotics on our Middle Campus and another related to maker-ed on our Lower Campus.

We expect that this 60% part-time role would require an 8:00 am - 5:00 pm schedule three days per week with sufficient time built-in for prep and support of our makerspace. There may be opportunity for this role to transition to full-time in subsequent years as our program offerings expand across our three campuses.

Responsibilities

  • Support club offerings in maker-ed and introductory robotics
  • Maintain and support our iMaginarium Makerspace and Maker Carts
