Teacher Needed for Meet Your Wild Neighbor!

As the 2019/2020 school year takes off, Santa Barbara Audubon Society is looking for the next elementary-school teacher to teach its Meet Your Wild Neighbor (MYWN) program.

For years, MYWN has brought a curriculum of science education to 1st- and 2nd-grade classrooms here in Santa Barbara.  The program visits classrooms once a week for a five-week series.  Each series includes classroom visits by our live raptors, a neighborhood bird walk, and a field trip to Lake Los Carneros.  The impact of such lessons lasts far beyond the classroom: it’s an opportunity for young people to get outdoors and learn hands-on in nature.

This year will see a strengthening and revitalization of our past curriculum. SBAS is pressing forward to create new partnerships with under-served schools in our community. Now we need a teacher to deliver the program in 1st- and 2nd-grade classrooms.

The ideal candidate is an experienced elementary school teacher, passionate about conservation, and excited to lead experiential lessons in nature. If you are interested, please contact Eyes In the Sky program director Hannah Atkinson at email hidden; JavaScript is required.
