PHE Garden Educator Position 

Teach Science and Nutrition in the Garden to K-5 Students! 

Our ideal garden educator is someone with teaching experience and garden knowledge/experience who is part of the PHE or surrounding community.  All teaching is outside in the garden, with the exception of winter cooking lessons, so the garden educator must be comfortable teaching hands-on lessons outdoors. This is a contractual position at $34/hr, teaching two days a week for a total of 32 weeks spread into blocks in the fall, winter, and spring. Garden maintenance is year round.  Days and times are somewhat flexible, but once the schedule is decided, it remains the same for the duration of the year.  Educators will contract directly with Life Lab, the fiscal sponsor of Growing Healthy Kids, and must pass a background check with MDUSD. 

Job Duties include:

Work together with Growing Healthy Kids Program Director and other Growing Healthy Kids garden educators and MDUSD teachers to procure and/or produce garden and wellness curriculum that is integrated and correlated with Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards, Career Technical Education Standards, and other MDUSD curricular and wellness standards, in alignment with the goals of the Growing Healthy Kids program.
