    • I can help with developing the lesson plans and activities.
    • There will be at least two other volunteers in the room helping with classroom management.
    • I can purchase any materials needed for the lesson plan.
    • This will be a workshop rotation model, which means that you will be working with a different age group for each session (prek-1st, 2nd-5th, 6th-12th)
