SUMMARY OF RESPONSIBILITIES:
Afterschool Instructors create a safe, positive, environment that supports children’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. They create lesson plans for and lead thematically-integrated enrichment activities within the broader context of larger projects that nurture a child’s love of learning and reinforce the child’s self-confidence through skill-building and character-development. These activities, although not remedial in nature, should nevertheless reinforce the grade-level math and literacy learning that occurs during the regular school day.
