Seeking Staff for James Logan Summer Academy
« on: January 01, 2013, 08:25:16 PM »
I'm seeking debate teachers for James Logan High School's summer debate academy, to be held June 24-July 9 on our campus in Union City, California.  Union City's in the East Bay, about halfway between Oakland and San Jose.  Our students, mostly raw beginners, are from Union City and neighboring towns.  We teach policy, Lincoln-Douglas, public forum, and parliamentary debate, and we expect 80-100 students will enroll. 

This is a commuter workshop; we are at work six days a week, from 8 am to 5 pm.  Evenings and Sundays are unscheduled, and so is the Fourth of July.  We provide housing (for staff who don't live in the Bay Area), a tasty lunch each day (plus a stipend for dinner), and a very competitive salary.  Most of last year's staff absolutely loved teaching at the academy, and most will return, but a few won't (and growth in enrollment may mean we have additional slots to fill). 

Applicants should be able and willing to teach absolute beginners (though some students will have one or two years of competitive experience) and must be willing to participate in curriculum development throughout the spring. 

If you want to know more, please contact me at    Many thanks!
