TEACH KIDS TO CODE!

At Coding with Kids, we are inspiring the next generation of innovators for the STEM careers of tomorrow! If you love kids and coding, you will love being a part of our growing team.

Coding with Kids is a national academy teaching computer programming to K-12 students. We teach thousands of students and collaborate with hundreds schools. Our partnership with the Amazon Future Engineers program enables us to reach students across the communities and enables Coding with Kids to make an even bigger impact.

As an instructor, you will be responsible for delivering our high quality curriculum, building relationships with your students, helping those with minimal skills and challenging those who are ahead. We provide curriculum and lesson plans, but leave room for creativity, adjustments and FUN!

We are looking for part-time instructors for our after-school program to teach our coding classes to elementary and middle school students in the Portland Public, Beaverton, North Clackamas, and Lake Oswego School Districts.

The job:

We provide the curriculum, computers, and students. You bring your experience and creativity to teach our curriculum, build relationships with students, parents, and school administrators, and have fun impacting the next generation of coders.

The commitment:

We are offering more than 100 classes from October to December 2019. Each class is approximately one hour, once a week, for 10 weeks. Instructors are paid an additional hour for classroom and curriculum prep time per week per class. Depending on your availability, you can teach 3-8 classes a week (average of 5 classes), earning 6-16 hours per week. All our classes take place after school between 2:00 PM and 5:00 PM, so there are no morning, evening, or weekend shifts!

The reward:

Our students are fun and eager to learn from you! As you share your knowledge and passion for coding, you will witness them develop the skills to become adept coders. Depending on the level you teach (K-2, 3-5, or 6-8 graders), you have the ability to advance their tech skills to new heights and gain valuable classroom teaching experience, which looks great on any resume! Since our partner schools are located all over, you will also have the opportunity to connect with various communities in Portland.

Pay:

Instructors receive hourly rate plus quarterly bonuses as well as paid training. Additionally, instructors teaching 4 or 5 days a week receive increased pay.

The person we are looking for:

We are looking for instructors with a combination of tech/coding skills and teaching/leading experience with children. Since the position requires traveling to different schools daily, the ideal candidate will be reliable, have access to a car or good public transportation, and is able to commit to the 10 weeks of classes - our students depend on it! Of course, since you’re working with children, unpredictability is part of the job, so having a sense of humor and an ability to go with the flow is also extremely helpful!
