Group Leaders engage with students in grades ranging from Kindergarten through 5th grade.  This job requires you to work with each grade level rather than just one specific grade.  The work hours are Monday 1:30-6:00, Tuesday 2:30-6:00, Wednesday 12:00-6:00, Thursday 2:30-6:00, Friday 2:30-6:00.  Up to 23 hours per week

- Communicate thoughts, issues, ideas, etc. well with students and parents

- Possess a desire to participate as an active listener, contributor, motivator, and leader

 

Each Group Leader will have a primary grade for whom they will be accountable for during check-in, snack time, outdoor activities, and homework/quiet time.  At enrichment time, you will often rotate grades to ensure all grades are partaking in various activities.  For example, if you are the Group Leader in charge of the enrichment activity titled "Creative Art" you will develop and carry out a lesson plan for the week relating to art.  Your lesson plan should be modified for each grade level depending on which day of the week they are with you.
