We are seeking enthusiastic applicants for our Summer Camp Technology Teacher and Assistant positions!
Tech Academy teaches week-long technology classes throughout Minnesota. We offer Minecraft, Movie Making, Video Game Design, Legos, and Robotics classes for students ages 6-14. Ideal applicants for Teacher positions are college students/graduates with experience with elementary-age children or licensed teachers. Ideal applicants for Assistant positions are tech-savvy high school or college students or those qualified for the Lead Teacher position looking for a more relaxed role in the classroom. Many of our past employees were able to use our positions to satisfy internship requirements.
You must be available for at least 6 weeks this summer, from June 6 to August 26. Classes typically run Monday-Thursday with occasional Fridays, and you will need to be available from 8am to 4pm all week. Some classes run in only the morning or just the afternoon, and sometimes both. We have over 100 locations throughout the twin cities.
As a teacher or assistant, you will be driving to your site, typically a school or community education building. You will be responsible for bringing 2-3 plastic bins of equipment per class, which you will then be set up in a classroom before students arrive.
