D6 classrooms rely on volunteers to teach and staff classrooms each week.
Lead or Assistant Teacher
Volunteers can serve as either a lead or assistant teacher on either a weekly or every-other-week basis. Ample training is provided to enable volunteers to successfully fulfill their roles. Contact Ami Duvick at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about serving in a D6 classroom.
Volunteers can serve on an every-other-week basis as either a lead or assistant teacher in the Wonderfully Made room (3rd-8th grade) or as a buddy for a special needs student in a Pre-K to 2nd grade D6 classroom. Ample training is provided to enable volunteers to successfully fulfill their roles. Contact Tess Ashley at email@example.com with questions.
In addition to the trained and background checked regular volunteers, D6 also relies upon parents to help keep classroom adult: child ratios optimal during weekend services. We ask any parent whose child regularly attends a weekend class to serve as a parent helper in a D6 classroom twice each quarter. Parent helpers are not responsible for teaching lessons, disciplining children or monitoring restroom trips. They are simply another set of hands the teacher can rely upon to meet various needs within the classroom.
