Environmental Education Instructor

The most important thing we look for in any person who applies to work at the Sound to Sea Program is a love for children. You must have a strong desire to be with them and help them learn. As an instructor at Sound to Sea, you are in the extraordinarily powerful position of giving many students their first look at the natural world, their first experience of loving learning, their first positive, applied experience in the sciences, or their first thought towards protecting our fragile planet. This position is an honor and a responsibility. Each child who comes through the program will only come here one time, and will see whatever you do with completely new eyes. Class topics vary from island ecology to coastal cultures and human impacts. Instructors create programs and classes for diverse populations and are trained to work with and care for birds of prey and salt and fresh water aquariums. Our instructors not only get multiple trainings and evaluations to help them grow in their teaching, but we also encourage instructors to complete projects that add to our curriculum.  Instructor projects have included painting murals, re-articulating a whale skeleton, or simply developing their own lesson plans.
