We are engaged with a Makerspace program, Socratic Seminars, Robotics, Math Initiatives, Project Based Learning, a school-wide Technology support program and a strong Community Engagement program.

This is also an opportunity to be exposed to Spanish as well. (You do not need to speak Spanish for this position.)

Weekends are free to explore the various sections of the country which are uniquely different. It is not expensive and you can travel safely and economically to most all areas.
