Teaching

Splash 2016 will be held on April 9th this year! If you enjoy teaching or sharing what you are passionate about register to teach by February 27th!

Teacher registration is now closed. If you have already registered a class, please click here to check on your class details. Missed registration? Please consider volunteering!

Who can teach at Splash?

Are you a college student or recent alum? Have a passion you want to share with middle and high school students? Teach for us! What does it mean to teach for Splash? You get to teach the class you always wanted to younger students. Teachers commit to teaching their class on the day of the program, and one preparatory meeting prior to learn important information about the day of the program. That's it! It's as little as a two-hour and fifteen minute commitment (because you need to arrive fifteen minutes before your class).

What commitment am I making when signing up to teach?

We ask that teachers commit fully to teaching their class(es). This means coming to a preparatory meeting, date and time TBD, to listen to vital program information, and arriving prepared to teach at least 15 minutes before their first scheduled class. Students are coming to learn from you, and it is unfair to them if you go back on your commitment. That said, if you’d like to be more involved before, during, and/or after Splash, we’d love your help! Spring, the organization that runs Splash, meets every Thursday at 6 in Chase-Duckett Dining Room B. Feel free to come to a meeting, or hangout during Splash and volunteer. Please email eop@smith.edu with any questions!

Program Essentials

Who are we teaching?
We teach 6th-12th grade students from a variety of educational backgrounds.

How can I become more involved?

We'd love for you to spend more time with us! Help us plan the program, volunteer on the day of, or visit other Splash programs with us. You make your schedule- it's great for busy college students who want to try teaching for the first time or share a fun passion for a break from the norm.

What else do I need to do to teach?

If you haven't already, you need to complete a Child Safety Training and CORI background check. More information can be found about that here.

Don't have an account? You need to make a volunteer teacher account here before continuing! Have some questions before jumping in? Read our FAQs or email spring@smith.edu for help!
