Community Based Partnerships, anyone?

Greetings,

WHO
Seeking someone gifted in teaching with a potential variety of educational outlets from foreign language immersion, arts & crafts, photography, yoga, music lessons, martial arts, even a unique approach to core subjects like math and reading & writing.

WHAT
Help me create a new program that offers integrated teaching to students of any age or skill level. I work with a lot of children (you’ll need to provide a background check), but open to adults as well. Here’s an example of a program we’ve done in the past:

A Spanish-speaking student was having trouble academically and socially in school when she went from a Spanish-speaking home to a 100% English speaking school. She stopped showing interest in interacting with others, and this was affecting her ability to learn. Her parents brought her to me to take horseback riding lessons, and I used an integrated Spanish/English approach to teach her English It was great!

Or….
I have taught Spanish using fully immersed, communicative language teaching activities to complete Spanish-speaking newbies. Using nature and the outlet of the horse, it was fun, seemed casual, and kept people paying attention.

Or….
We are collaborating on a yoga/riding class. I’ve dappled in this already, but we are currently polishing the program.

SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
If you’re creative, looking to fill some extra space in your day with an activity that will make you stronger physically, emotionally and mentally, and hoping to share your skills in a creative new outlet that can and will turn into a paid gig, then you should send your resume and a cover letter in to us.

PLEASE
Check out www.MaverickHorsebackRiding.com for more information about us. Don’t forget to take a look at our reviews. My goal is two-folded: Two continue offering unique programs and to find individuals who would be a good fit to work as Independent Contractors any day from 1-4 (the hot part of the day) during summer camp.

The current gal I’m running the yoga program with comes and learns about horse safety, handling a horse on the ground, and how to ride. We do yoga sessions together and then collaborate on how to best integrate the two. She produces some writing for me reflecting on the overlapping principles in yoga and horseback riding, and we are brainstorming the final details on how she will fit into the summer camp program. Fun!

I’ve always had a bit of a different way of looking at the world.  That’s clearly why Maverick Riding has developed as it has.  It’s unique:  a trail program with a focus on horsemanship from the ground-up.  We operate on the belief that you don’t need a riding arena to learn how to ride a […]
