Teach with Story Pirates
Story Pirates in hiring for the 2015 - 2016 season!
Story Pirates (www.storypirates.org) is an education and media company based in New York and Los Angeles, which pairs experienced teachers with talented artists to collaborate with schools and community organizations in creating exciting, dynamic classes covering a broad range of academic topics. The majority of our classes are writing workshops in a variety of genres, though our teaching methods are highly arts-integrated, incorporating drama, music, visual arts, etc.
We are currently looking for new teaching artists to work in our New York-based after-school programs and in-school residencies. Prospective teachers should have at least 2 years of experience working with kids, either in a classroom or alternative educational setting, and should be VERY comfortable being dramatic, silly, and ready to think on their feet. Our teaching artists work as a team to engage kids using our curriculum, which is packed full of Viking costumes, giant plush monster attacks, secretive extra-terrestrial organizations, and evil monarchs bent on taking over your classroom. Experience teaching writing is not required but is highly valued, so please highlight any such experience in your cover letter.
Spanish speakers (and other dual language speakers) are especially encouraged to apply. Please make a special note of your language skills when e-mailing us.
