Current Openings

Common Ground is Seeking a Forest School Teacher in the NatureYear Program at Common Ground

This positon is a SHORT TERM commitment to cover the anticipated leave of a staff member. NatureYear connects a small group of children (ages 5 – 13) with a 10 month long intensive experience in nature. Children come for one full day each week instead of attending their traditional classroom on that day. NatureYear teachers use an emergent curriculum that follows the seasons and the interests of the children. Click here to learn more.
