Child Care in Central Square

Our nine-year-old son takes Taekwando on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in Central Square, Cambridge, starting at 4pm. He can get there on his own, but we need an adult who can be present while he is in class for an hour and then walk home with him about 10 minutes away.

We would ideally like someone who can do both Tuesdays and Thursdays but would be open to just one day if we can find someone else to do the other day.

Please contact us at jeremy@rothmanshore.com if you would be interested in learning more.

Babysitting Opportunity in West Medford

We are Tufts grads in search of a student (or a few students!) who could babysit for us occasionally–nights and/or weekends to free us up for date nights or errands.  Our schedule is very flexible but we are also willing to set up regular bi-weekly or monthly sitters if that’s easier and/or preferred.  Our daughter Frances will be 2 months old in January so we’d prefer someone who has experience with infants. We also have a 2 year old pup who is easy and loving so must be comfortable with dogs as well! We are just a 5 minute drive from Tufts but we can also provide transportation if needed. 

Compensation is $20/hr. 

If interested, please email Jessica Schiller at jschiller19@gmail.com

Billion Oyster Project
The Billion Oyster Project (BOP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to restore oyster reefs to New York Harbor through public education initiatives. We lead a large-scale marine restoration effort to restore one billion live oysters in New York Harbor by 2035.

BOP engages the community through its restoration-based STEM education programs for
middle and high-school students, its collection program with NYC restaurants to collect oyster shells for reef substrate, and its volunteer program, which enables New Yorkers to get involved in hands-on community science restoration work.

Billion Oyster Project was born out of the New York Harbor School (NYHS), a public high school which provides a college preparatory education built upon New York City’s marine & maritime industry. NYHS remains Billion Oyster Project’s flagship education partner, instilling the ethics of environmental stewardship and the needed skills for careers on the water. As sophomores, Harbor School students enroll in one of seven career and technical education (CTE) programs including Aquaculture, Vessel Operations, Marine Biology Research, Professional Diving, Ocean Engineering, Maritime Policy & Advocacy, and Marine Systems Technology. Each CTE program has a role within the work of Billion Oyster Project, extending students’ education from
the classroom into a real-world context.


Our Vision
A future in which New York Harbor is the center of a rich, diverse and abundant estuary. The communities surrounding this complex ecosystem will help shape its vitality and in return enjoy its many benefits, including endless opportunities for work, education and recreation. The harbor is a world-class public space, well used and well cared for—our Commons.


Our Ethos

Restoration through Education
We believe that restoration without education is fleeting. To ensure the long-term health and productivity of our natural environment we must teach young people to care for, monitor and restore their Harbor.
Education through Restoration
We believe that students learn best when applying their studies to a large-scale ecosystem restoration project that challenges them to become active participants and takes them out of the classroom, down to the water’s edge to experience the ecosystem first-hand. We prioritize educational programs that are site-specific, project-based, and inquiry-based and that integrate a field work component.


Position Overview

The Billion Oyster Project is seeking a Digital Product and Curriculum Specialist to develop computational science training and curriculum for NYC public school teachers and students and to coordinate product management for the project’s web based digital platform.

This position is funded through two three year National Science Foundation grant awards with the primary goals of: increasing students’ NY Harbor restoration and STEM content knowledge, confidence in doing field research activities, and interest in STEM careers; increasing teachers’ NY Harbor restoration and STEM content knowledge, instructional skills, and inquiry-based field research practice, and; increasing underrepresented students’ motivation, interest in and preparation for pursuing STEM careers.

This position offers the opportunity to create unique restoration-science STEM curriculum while overseeing the development of an innovative web based learning platform.


Required Qualifications
● Master’s degree in a relevant science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM)
field or a Bachelor’s degree in a STEM discipline and a master’s degree in Education.
● Professional experience developing middle and/or high school student curriculum in
computer and data science
● Professional experience delivering middle and/or high school teacher professional
development training in computer and data science
● Experience managing web based projects, including overseeing the work of one or more
programmers
● Experience using computers for complex data analysis


Desired Qualifications
● Teaching experience in NYC middle or high schools
● Working knowledge of programming languages such as Python or other programming
languages suited to data analysis, API development and data management
● Knowledge of environmental restoration, environmental science or marine biology
● Ability to work in a team environment with collaborative and inclusive approaches

Billion Oyster Project is fueled by the passion and commitment of its growing team. Enthusiasm for the work of engaging students, teachers and the public in the restoration of their natural environment is an expectation for the position. Candidates should be adaptable, resilient and comfortable working collaboratively on complex projects with various stakeholders.
