My name is Jeanette Ordoñez, I am on the StormFest committee and leading our effort to recruit Station Educators for the Highline school district StormFest spring 2018 event.
You are probably wondering what StormFest is, let me provide some more information.
StormFest is a unique 2-day, interactive stormwater science educational festival for 6th grade students at Highline School District. The event is funded through grants and cities within the Highline school district boundaries. Environmental Science Center has adapted the hands-on Drain Rangers curricula to create 5 different 25-minutes
innovative in-field, experiential lessons focused on local water quality and stormwater solutions that meet Washington State Common Core and NGSS 6th grade standards.
In order to make this event an even greater learning opportunity we are providing training and compensation to undergraduate or graduate students, recent graduates, para-educators, local government employees, non-profit employees or individuals looking to gain hands-on experience implementing environmental lessons. All levels of experience are welcome!
Station educators will be compensated $200 for their participation in a 4-hour training and both days of StormFest, on June 13 and 14. Lunch and free on-site parking will be provided to station educators on both days of the event.
We would really like to find station educators with a passion for environmental science and who reflect the many languages, races, ethnicities and countries of origin within the Highline school district community. As there are many 6th grade students who are English Language Learners, bi-lingual station educators will be compensated an additional $50 for their language services.
I would love to offer this opportunity to students within the UW’s School of Environmental and Forest Sciences as I feel it could be a great fit. If you could share the attached job description or flyer with them it would be greatly appreciated.
I know you may have questions regarding the event, I am happy to provide more information!
