Hiring an Instructor for Missouri River Scientists

MRR is Hiring a Part-Time Education Instructor!

Missouri River Relief is seeking a passionate and experienced educator who will work directly with the Missouri River Scientists program to provide instruction that builds students’ and teachers' knowledge of the Missouri River.

  • Status: Seasonal/Part-Time
  • Start Date: End of February 2022
  • End Date: Middle of May 2022
  • Location: Columbia, Missouri
  • Salary: Hourly, $15 per hour.
  • Application Deadline: February 4th, 2022

Position Purpose

The Education Instructor works directly with the Missouri River Scientists traveling trunk program to provide instruction that builds students’ knowledge and understanding of the Missouri River. This will be achieved through hands-on lessons designed to deepen the students’ connection to and understanding of how various groups (i.e. scientists and farmers) perceive and experience environmental issues.

The “Missouri River Scientists” (formerly Missouri River All-Stars) program is an educational curriculum for 4th graders that includes four lesson plans about the recovery and management of the endangered Pallid Sturgeon on the Missouri River.

The position’s goal is to support classroom teachers and their implementation of the curriculum using a gradual co-teaching model. The co-teaching model could look something like this:

  1. Lesson One: Missouri River Relief instructor teaches the entire lesson. The teacher will observe how the instructor leads the lesson.
  2. Lesson Two: Missouri River Relief instructor teaches most of the lesson and teacher leads either the beginning or end of the lesson plan.
  3. Lesson Three: Missouri River Relief instructor teaches half of the lesson plan while the classroom teacher leads the other half.
  4. Lesson Four: The teacher leads the entire lesson plan on their own, with the Missouri River Relief instructor acting as classroom support.  This program is not structured for the Education Instructor to do all of the teaching as much as it is to support and encourage the classroom teachers that participate in the program.
