Founded in 1952, Norwood School is a coeducational, independent day school with approximately 450 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. The School sits on 38 beautiful and expansive acres in Bethesda, Maryland, less than six miles from Washington, D.C. As one of the finest PK-8 schools in the country, Norwood sets the bar high and is committed to educating the whole child in a student-centered, challenging, and nurturing environment. We are a diverse and inclusive community where the voice of every student is heard and where adults model a love for learning.
Norwood is looking for patient, flexible and energetic after school proctors to assist in the After School Program for 10- to 14-year-old students. The students are expected to complete their homework and/or read, and proctors facilitate this process by monitoring activity and ensuring a quiet environment in which the students can concentrate. The students may ask the proctor questions from time to time, but subject matter knowledge is not required, just the ability to encourage the students to solve problems and resolve questions on their own.
Ideal candidates will have experience working with students in an educational setting as a teacher, tutor, proctor, aide, or volunteer, and have a passion for creating a student-centered environment for middle school children. Norwood’s After School Program for this age group promotes the healthy social and emotional development of children, as well as academics in a relaxed environment. The ideal candidate will hold MSDE OCC certifications. College graduates and high school graduates pursuing a college degree or associates degree are also welcome to apply.
The position offers competitive compensation, summers off, excellent work environment, and a flexible schedule. The starting pay is $16.50 per hour and the regular hours are from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays. Norwood is located 5 miles from the Bethesda metro station and is accessible via the Ride On bus system. Please email your resume and cover letter to Elizabeth Scott, firstname.lastname@example.org, Director of After School Programs. No phone calls, please.
