Dear Students, 

A local 5th grader is looking for a tutor especially in Math and English (inspiration for education with learning tools). The student can meet most days from 4 to 5 pm or 6:30 to 7:30 pm anywhere on campus, Sundays will work for an hour any time after 3pm to 7:30pm.   If you’re interested, please contact Thad Stowe.   Check out the SEO off campus job listings for other opportunities to work with children.

Monday, October 10th at 4:30 don’t miss The Empathy Gap: Film screening with Dr. Thomas Keith. The responsibility (and ability) to teach empathy is an important topic in education.

Later on Monday two Middlebury alums will discuss their work as civil rights lawyers and advocates.  At 7:30 in Wilson Hall they will describe their day-to-day work at the ACLU and their views on the current debates in higher education over safe spaces, trigger warnings, racial justice and free speech.

Nadine Barnicle at The Center for Career and Internships arranged for two JumpStart sessions for seniors interested in the field of education.  If you missed the session last night there’s another one scheduled for Monday, details on the right.

Dear Students,

Happy Fall Semester! 

As you get settled in to your routine there are a number of local positions open that involve working with children.  Dustin Hunt of the Middlebury Rec Department is hiring students to work with the after school soccer and basketball programs.  Jenne Morton at College Street Children’s Center is hiring teaching assistants as is Marcy Cram at Otter Creek Child Center. There are also many people looking for after school care and tutoring.  Check them out on the SEO off campus job listings.

Want to share your intercultural interests with local high school students?  Join Language in Motion - an educational collaboration that connects Middlebury’s international, study abroad, and upper level language students with local high school and middle school teachers, students, and classrooms.

With support and training, Middlebury College students prepare and deliver lessons and activities that promote global awareness, cultural competence, and world language acquisition.

We’re accepting 15 new presenters for the fall semester.  The short and simple application is due next Wednesday – Sept. 21st.

Feel free to contact Kristen Mullins with any questions - or come to an information sessions at 7:15 pm Tuesday (9/20) at the Center for Community Engagement Office at 20 Old Chapel Road (across from the Service Building)  You do not need to attend an information session to apply.

We are also offering a Language in Motion mini-MAlt trip over the fall break.  Please contact me (Kristen) if you are interested in applying as a leader or a participant on that trip as well.

Nutrition Outreach and Mentoring a student organization with the Center for Community Engagement is partnering with Mary Hogan and Cornwall Elementary Schools to teach nutrition lessons and offer lunch room taste tests with local students. Volunteer opportunities are once a month at the school and transportation will be provided.  Contact Chelsea Colby for more information.

At Cornwall School, we have a unique HoM schedule that best aligns with what our local growers are able to supply us each month. Middlebury College undergraduates will have the opportunity to visit classrooms at Cornwall School monthly to instruct HoM lessons, including agricultural and culinary education activities.  Each undergraduate will be paired with a teacher and his/her students for the 2016-17 school year and Marble Valley Grows will train students monthly on the curriculum connected to the HoM ingredient.

Mary Hogan Elementary School, located in Middlebury, is a small public school (400 students) serving grades K-6. Home of the Hawks, their motto is “Swift, Strong, and Smart”. The cafeteria, run by the Abbey Group, prides itself in featuring local foods (fruits, vegetables, meats, milk and cheeses). The cafeteria participates in Vermont’s Harvest of the Month program and we are excited to support that program with taste tests in the cafeteria at lunch.

There will be a NOM Training with Marble Valley Grows for all interested volunteers on 9/26 from 7-8 pm in Coltrane Lounge. Snacks will be provided!
