A successful Assistant Teacher must not only believe strongly in KSL's mission, but also have the ability to adapt, learn, and most importantly, engage kids ages 2-12.
Teaching a KSL is exciting, as classes are typically 6-10 children, and all subject areas come from questions that kids ask, such as why do our feet stink, what's behind the sink, and why can't I mix my soda with milk? At KSL, we inspire kids today, to build a better future tomorrow and as such, it is not just about science, but more about leading kids in their everyday discoveries using hands-on science as a tool for learning.
Please note that our teaching staff at Kids Science Labs typically work Tuesday- Saturday during the academic year and Monday- Friday during the summer months. Candidates must be available Saturdays September- May.
