Teacher Assistant Program

Teacher Assistant Program: Entering Grades 8-12

Summer Program Teacher Assistant Opportunities

Each year as we gear up for our Summer Program at Open Window School, we are looking for interested teens to support the excellent summer program classes as Teacher Assistants (TAs). Some TAs are older siblings or Open Window School alumni and others come for the greater Eastside community. Though TAs may earn Community Service Hours for their high school requirement, (determined by individual TA schools), many agree the TA program is a great way to learn how to help others and have fun!
As part of the TA program, you will be placed with one cohort of students for the week and help the group as they rotate through different activities. Our TA Director will provide individual daily check ins with each TA as well as daily group training sessions where TAs will learn techniques to help them work with children.
