Are you a passionate educator who is interested in teaching about the environment? Slide Ranch has opened the application process for our 2017 Teachers-in-Residence program for 2017. Our residential teaching internship is a unique, immersive opportunity to expand your skills and experience while living on the wild Marin coast.
Our Teachers-In-Residence (TIRs) lead groups and develop curriculum for school, community and family groups visiting Slide Ranch, using our working farm and and the wild, coastal ecosystem surrounding it to guide hands-on learning illustrating concepts of ecology, stewardship and sustainability.
In addition to flexing their teaching skills, TiRs support Ranch staff by tending the organic garden, sheep, goats and poultry, and maintaining Ranch facilities. TIRs live in individual small residential buildings built by former teachers and ranch staff and share cooking duties along with other residential chores.
The annual internship is 10 and a half months long, beginning in late January. There are also opportunities for 2 and a half month long summer internships that begin in late May.
