Dynamic teacher for outdoor learning pod in Cambridge

We are two families looking for creative solutions to our childcare and educational needs. Collectively we have 2 kindergartners and 2 second graders in Cambridge Public Schools who will need assistance with their online school assignments as well as enrichment and socialization, while we parents work. We consider this an incredible opportunity for an aspiring or experienced teacher to develop and implement their own curriculum, as we would highly prioritize any curiosity-driven, outdoor, social justice-minded in person programming over more the district provided screen time.

Looking to meet exceptional individuals to start a conversation. Hours are flexible and pay will be determined based on experience, but certainly fair and generous.

Cambridge School Volunteers’ Art and Science in One brings fourth- and fifth-grade students to Fresh Pond Reservation for a structured program in nature journaling as a gateway to engagement with science learning and science practices.

The program provides each student with an adult volunteer who mentors the student over the course of two 1-hour and three 2-hour sessions. Mentoring is specifically designed to support students’ development of a scientific practice—honing their observation and data collection skills.

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.
