NEW ENGLAND SCIENCE & SAILING
Marine Science, Sailing & Adventure Sports
New England Science & Sailing (NESS) is seeking instructors who have experience working with kids, a strong knowledge base of marine sciences and a contagious teaching energy for the summer of 2015, with the possibility of extended work in the spring and fall. Our marine science curriculum has a strong STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & math!) influence and we thrive at getting kids on and in the water. Instructors are responsible for implementing an active, hands-on, experientially-oriented program including physically demanding work, such as kayaking, snorkeling, surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, body boarding, fishing, boat driving and some heavy lifting. This is a high energy program where instructors spend long days working and teaching in a unique environment. Our summers are extremely busy with ever-changing schedules due to weather, so we are looking for instructors that are adaptable to change. We have high expectations in safety, curriculum development and of course FUN!
Qualifications: Strong communication, decision making, logistical and organizational skills; outgoing and enthusiastic personality; willingness to work long hours during season; BS or BA in marine science, biology, oceanography, or related science; teaching experience; in-water supervision experience. Preference will be given to candidates with USCG 6-Pack license, ARC waterfront lifeguarding, CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer and First Aid.
