EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Elementary/ Middle School Instructional Assistant

Location: Ann Arbor 

MI Employment Type: Full-Time, Hourly  

Description

Honey Creek Community School was founded in 1995 with support from the Washtenaw Intermediate  School District (WISD). Honey Creek has grown from a K-2 charter school with 33 students to a fully staffed K-8  charter school with 250 students and a lengthy waiting list of families eager to attend. Honey Creek Community  School was founded out of the community and emphasizes and maintains our relationship and connection with the  community. The response from the community to Honey Creek is overwhelmingly positive as evidenced by the strong participation of our parents in school activities. Our project based, thematic, integrated curriculum, small  class sizes and strong student-teacher relationships illustrate our uniqueness as a charter school. Our effectiveness is demonstrated through strong academic performance and recognition from various accrediting agencies, including  the Midwest Education Trust: https://midwest.edtrust.org/honeycreek-community-school/
