Education Department Intern
Texas Discovery Gardens is seeking an energetic, outgoing, detail oriented individual to become our next part-time, paid Education Intern for Spring 2015. Applicants will be responsible for implementing programs we offer to school children and general visitors. Internship duties will also include teacher communication, representing the Education Department at various festivals/fairs, some animal care, curriculum development and other various tasks. We are seeking one intern for fifteen weeks, beginning in mid-February. Hours are typically Monday-Friday, with a few additional weekend days.
Applicants should have a basic understanding of life science, experience working with children, and able to be on their feet for 6+ hours. This can be a fast-paced job, and employees are expected to move quickly and efficiently. First Aid/CPR certification, and being Spanish Bilingual are preferred, but not required.
Training is provided for the programs, but the Intern should expect to be teaching classes within a month of being hired. You will gain valuable experience as an Environmental Educator at Texas’ first certified public organic garden.
