Morning Core Instructors

Disciplines sought:  literature, composition, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, biology, chemistry, anatomy, and physics. 
Here at UB we like to offer a more "hands-on" approach to teaching.  In past summers, student projects have included water rockets, hot air balloons, and bubble gum in class, just to name a few!  We believe that learning should be FUN and out of the box.  If you have an idea and you think it may be too crazy, pass it by us anyway, you never know we may just go for it!

English classes will be required to complete a portfolio piece such as a brochure or a personal narrative, so if you apply to teach English please keep in mind that you will need to be familiar with computer software programs so these can be completed.
