POSITION SUMMARY
At TRCS we like to consider ourselves slash teachers—meaning that we are all
teachers/counselors/field coordinators/CTE instructors etc. This position is for a Social
Studies/Language Arts teacher that offers a unique opportunity for a high energy individual with
vision and creativity to develop cutting edge curriculum that integrates classroom and field
experiences for students. Teachers use the outdoors as an instructional vehicle that leads students
to high school completion while also fostering good character and environmental awareness.
Teachers also plan and facilitate residential “spikes”, camping trips that combine fun, education,
community, conservation work, and teambuilding. We want a social studies teacher that can help
students explore the intersections of Race/Class/Gender and Nature, help prepare students to be
active participants in democracy and foster a sense of purpose and belonging that extends from
our classrooms into the local community and beyond.
