OPEN to ALL US Candidates! Wonderful dual-working parents with 2 children are looking to hire a top-notch Educator to facilitate learning and fun for the the next year, Sept 2020 – Sept 2021! The family is based in Boston, but will be staying at their Elk Rapids, MI vacation home for the next year due to COVID-19. The family has two children, ages 11 and 15. The eldest child has severe special needs (emotional/behavioral, not physical) – the right candidate for this role will have past experience working with a variety of special needs and is very kind, patient, affectionate and compassionate. The other child is extremely active and loves everything physical including snowboarding, dancing, and riding horses. Both parents have busy careers, travel extensively, and want the best for their children. They are looking for an Educator who can facilitate their school’s distance learning curriculum and build upon it by by enhancing their learning with hands-on activities and academic concepts. It is the parent’s hope that their children can enter the next school year even more advanced due to the hands-on attention and individual learning provided by the Educator.
The schedule is Mon-Fri from 8am-5pm; 8am-3pm will be focused on school work, and 3pm-5pm will be focused on activities including PE (riding bikes, swimming in the lake, obstacle courses in the yard), games, arts and crafts activities, and science experiments. During the summer months the position will be a mixture of teaching and nanny duties, so all candidates should be comfortable with this. You will be seen as part of the family and as a partner with the parents. The family’s Christian faith is very important to them and translates to their value system – they’re searching for a nanny who can understand and respect their beliefs. The ideal candidate will be calm, structured, warm, thoughtful, proactive, and not easily ruffled. Must be able to swim (pool or lake) and be fully vaccinated + willing to get a flu shot annually.
This is a live-out position. Compensation is $90K/yr gross + a health insurance stipend + generous PTO! The family is happy to cover re-location expenses for candidates who are relocating. If you are passionate about special needs and looking for a truly amazing 1-year position – this is a truly exceptional family and we are excited to find them someone equally special!
