Creating Opportunities for Physical Activity (COPA) is a physical activity and nutrition initiative in seven K-5 elementary schools.

In addition PE Instructors will demonstrate and teach classroom teachers to conduct Instant Recess (10 minute burst of physical activity) and provide physical activity opportunities for students during the school day. PE Instructors will also be responsible for assisting with data collection and other activities that promote a culture of daily physical activity and healthy eating on the school campus.

The ideal candidate is passionate about physical activity and nutrition and has experience working with K-5 students in a school/after school setting. This individual will also be resourceful, well organized, and creative in promoting and enhancing program needs and services.

This position is 24 hours/week, 10 months/year, and includes health and vacation benefits. Typical schedule is 8:00p-2:00p Monday-Friday plus four additional flex hours at some point in the week. Having flexibility in your schedule is very important.
