About

Teaching After School

The details!

Who do we hire?

Our teaching positions are a great fit for:
– Recently retired teachers
– Current or former Substitute Teachers
– College students working on their teaching degree
– Those with experience from another similar job

What will you teach?

Choose from our many different class titles. It depends on what type of class sounds fun for you. You don’t need to be an expert in any of the related STEM fields the classes are based on. All of our classes are introductory and geared for grades 1-2 or 3-5. We have tech (computer/ipad) based classes as well as hands on building, STEM challenge, and experiment based classes.

How are you trained?

You are in good hands!! Niecy Westmoreland will go over the class with you. It only takes a couple of hours to learn the curriculum. We have plenty of support materials and video examples.

Once you know a class you can teach it for half a school year! See our schedule below and you will notice the class for Qtr 1 switches to the other 5 schools for Qtr 2! Meaning, if you teach all year, you only need to learn the curriculum for 2 different class topics.

When are the classes?

Our class schedule follows the school year quarters. Each quarter you will teach a new class that spans 6 weeks, teaching one 90min session per week at each school. You will arrive 20min before class, and stay until all kids are picked up – which is usually immediately.

*Notice Wednesdays are early release days so your class will start a bit earlier. Actual time depends on the school; usually 12:15pm.

*Actual Qtr 1 & 2 Schedule for 2021

Where are the schools?

We are at 10 schools in the Kyrene School district. As we hire more staff, we will expand to Tempe and Chandler school districts.

Why work for Nerding?

You will experience teaching the way you always wished it could be:
– A class full of nerds who are excited to be there and learn
– short and sweet work day
– no grading or paperwork
– excellent support from Niecy and Micah
– room in the curriculum for your own creative ideas
– all supplies ready to go
