As a Splash teacher, you can inspire eager high school and middle school students by sharing your passions with them. You design your own class and can teach any topic you think is interesting. You can lead a workshop, give a lecture, teach a skill, or run an activity. You can teach for 1 hour or more, and you set the size of the class.
For ideas on what classes have been taught in the past, have a look at our ideas page!
Right now, we are especially interested in classes targeted at our younger students who are in 7th and 8th grade. Teaching middle school students is an exciting and unique teaching experience, but it can also be challenging, especially for newer teachers. Please click here for tips on teaching middle school students.
What is the time commitment?
Small. Teaching at Splash has a big impact but takes very little time. Besides the actual time it takes to teach your class (fifty minutes), you will be asked to attend a session with Splash administrators to go over teaching strategies, any questions you have, and receive feedback on your class idea. We will provide you with a t-shirt as a token of our appreciation.
