Teacher Leader Summer Shuffle 2018
In a collaborative effort between Impact on Education and Boulder Housing Partners (BHP), Summer Shuffle was created as a summer literacy program designed to ensure that all children enter BVSD schools prepared for kindergarten. Literacy skills and language development are strengthened through targeted opportunities to read, write, speak, listen, and explore. In addition, the whole family is explicitly engaged in hands-on, integrated literacy and language experiences that empower them to encourage and support literacy in the home.

Summer Shuffle specifically targets children that are between 3 to 5 years old, who live in a BHP development. The program will run from June 11th through July 19th*, occurring every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00am to 12:00pm** (class runs from 9:30am to 11:30am). Additionally, every Thursday evening there will be a family engagement night from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Teachers will be paid hourly, at a rate of $42.00 per hour for a total of approximately 90 hours including training, curriculum planning, and on-site work.
