 Elementary After School Camp Staff 

Elementary After School Camp Staff, Milwaukee College Prep 38th Street

We are a K4-8th grade school that offers a "camp" program to our students after school each day from 3:30-5:30pm during the school year (School year begins Aug 27th). We are looking to hire college students studying education to become a teacher. The job responsibilities include the following:

Manage a classroom of 15-25 students 
Assist with daily homework 
Prepare and execute a daily activity for once homework is complete 
Make sure the classroom is cleaned up at the end of camp  
Keep students safe and engaged in a fun learning environment

The pay is $10-$13 an hour depending on experience. It is a great way to gain some classroom experience, build the resume, and a potential foot in the door to teach at a 5-star school. We hire lots of our camp staff to be educational assistants and teachers at our school.

Anyone who is interested should send their resume and interest letter to kami.hagel@milwcollegeprep.com.
