Job Description

Still looking for a teaching job this hiring season? Worried about the impact of COVID-19 on work opportunities within schools? 

We hear you and we’re here to help. Our new service offering - Scoot at Home - can help connect you with a family or families who are looking for stellar educators to lead their home-learning pods. 

We've received strong interest from many families in the Bay Area, so read on and if it sounds like the right opportunity for you, apply now!

What is a home-learning pod?

Home-learning pods, currently also referred to as pandemic pods,  are an alternative learning model to supplement the virtual model schools are currently offering. Students are still enrolled and attend their schools, but supplement this by having an in-person educator to provide academic enrichment and engagement. The educator also facilitates peer-to-peer interactions to continue children's socio-emotional development.

Home-learning pods can have up up to eight students across up to three families. These students receive 5 hours of in-person learning & supervision every day from a Scoot at Home educator. Safety and learning all from within the family home!

What are the benefits?
  • Reduce your exposure to COVID-19
  • Support with a small group of students
  • Continue consistent employment throughout these trying times
What does a typical day of learning look like?
  • 4 hours of academic enrichment
  • 1 hour of supervision
  • 1 hour of preparation and planning time 
Schedules are set in consultation between the families and Scoot at Home educator to fit in with the school hours of the students and work hours of the parents.

What are the requirements?

Each pod is unique and requires different skill sets. That being said, if you meet all of the below criteria you will be a strong candidate to become a Scoot at Home educator across a multitude of home-learning pod models. 
  • CA Multiple-subject credential OR 12+ ECE credits (preferred but not mandatory)
