Become a Nature’s Classroom New England Instructor this Fall! – locations in ME, NH, MA, and CT
Nature’s Classroom New England is the largest overnight, hands-on, nature/science/SEL-based outdoor education program in the northeast. We provide programming for thousands of elementary and middle school students across New England each year! Each spring and fall we host students at our 7 beautiful sites. During their 1-5 day stay, students participate in an exciting variety of day and night time activities, facilitated by Nature’s Classroom instructors.
Instructors deliver residential, 1 to 5-day environmental education programs to 4th – 8th-grade students. We focus on social and emotional learning, science and engineering skills, and adventure education. The hands-on lessons focus on building critical thinking skills and exploring the connections between the natural and human-made world. Some of our favorite activities include wilderness survival, wood carving, aquatic biology, science fair, and outdoor cooking! Instructors also facilitate team building (initiatives and low ropes) to develop students’ leadership and problem-solving skills. Instructors are responsible for educating a group of 10-12 students throughout the program, including facilitating day and evening lessons. We are committed to providing the highest quality educational experience to our schools and are looking for enthusiastic, dedicated educators to join our team!
