Volunteer Opportunities at Hazel Wolf K-8 e-STEM School (just one mile from UW!)
Would you like to gain some experience helping out in an innovative public school classroom? Considering becoming a science teacher? Hazel Wolf K-8 e-STEM school has an excellent reputation and could use your skills, enthusiasm and assistance! We are a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) school that has an environmental focus.
Volunteer opportunities are available to tutor and serve as teacher assistants within the middle school (grades 6-8). Classes this spring will focus on properties of matter (very basic chemistry, atomic structure and the periodic table), catastrophic events (geology) and diversity of life (basic cell structure and function) but all units have an environmental focus. If you have knowledge in any of these areas, or just want to help out in general then you are welcome to volunteer in our school!
General Help: (Weekly/Bi-weekly/Monthly)
- “Stage Manager” Volunteer: (1-3 hrs per visit) help behind the scenes thinking through and setting up labs, grading, ordering lab materials, making photocopies, displaying student work, etc.
- “Classroom Helper” Volunteer: (1-6 hours per visit) assist students during class time to complete assignments, answer questions, organize notebooks, etc. “Super Tutor” Volunteer: (1-2 hours per visit) Provide assistance and guidance to students afterschool with their science assignments, projects, or overall comprehension and understanding of scientific concepts. Note: Classroom Helper and Super Tutor could be combined if you are available between 1:30 and 3:30.
- Topic Specialist: Prepare and possibly teach a specific lesson or give classroom demonstrations for specific topics.
- Content Collaborator: Collaborate with Mr. Ketter (me!) to do background research and/or design and enhance his lessons/curriculum.
- Field Experience Coordinator: Coordinate field trip(s), out of the classroom learning opportunities, and/or the Science Fair event.
- Spring Field Experience Chaperone: Serve as a chaperone during a five-day field trip to the Olympic Peninsula on March 7-11. You could chaperone for part or all of the field trip.
Science Fair is coming up this semester so tutors are especially needed in the classroom and after school to help students with their projects.
Note: Any of these roles can be combined depending on your interest and availability. Minimum volunteer period is one month, preferably two to three months.
School hours are 8:10 – 3:10. After school tutoring and preparation help is needed as well.
