Help Wanted! That's right, #kinderchat is hiring!

... yup, that is right. The time has come once again for us to hang out the "help wanted" sign, because:


For the 2014-15 school year, we are recruiting chat moderators, and (NEW THIS YEAR) official kinderchat pinners!. The compensation is beyond price (this is a fancy way of saying that we have no money with which to pay you), and includes:

  •  Involvement with something fresh and exciting
  •  Input into our ideas and projects, 
  • Practice with tech tools that may be new to you
  • Stronger connections to the entire #kinderchat network. 
  • Opportunities to grow your own PLN
  • The FUN of being "behind the scenes" at #kinderchat 
  • Depending on how progressive your administrators and/or school district are, your involvement could possibly count as PD hours. 
Ready to learn more?

(We have tweaked the topics and categories a little for next year, so even if you have moderated in the past, it is worth a look at the job description!)

The #kinderchat chat moderator job description is RIGHT HERE.
The #kinderchat official pinner job description is RIGHT HERE. (There are multiple pinner positions available, so don't be shy!)

Ready to dive right in and apply?

The #kinderchat  job application (we use the same application for all positions) is right here.

Looking forward to adding some friends to the backstage party!

#Kinderblog14, week 5: Arts & Entertainment

Holy crippity-crap, it is Sunday, isn't it? And that means you folks are waiting for another challenge.

Ok, here goes:

Arts and Entertainment:

When you spend all day in a room with young children, there is no avoiding the moments where it is all you can do not to bust out laughing.

What are the parts of this job that make you laugh the hardest (or work the hardest to KEEP from laughing)? Share examples if you want -- we all have our stories that should go in a book some day!

Because, let's be honest: it really DOES resemble a circus, some days!

Remember to tweet your post using the #kinderblog14 hashtag, and to post the link in the comments here, and/or on our Facebook page.
