Free Teacher Workshops

SCRAP offers teachers and educators free monthly workshops to learn how to incorporate sustainability and creative reuse in their everyday classroom practices! Each workshops comes with a $25 gift certificate to SCRAP. 

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM  |  Thursday, January 18th

There are countless ways to use supplies from SCRAP and items from your own recycle bin to spark creativity in your students. In this hour-long workshop, art instructor Petra Schumann will introduce five such projects, let you try them, and show you where to find the supplies you’ll need at SCRAP. No art experience necessary! The projects are geared toward K-8 classrooms, and all teachers are welcome.

Our Free Teacher workshops also qualify as Prop G hours!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR AN EDUCATOR TO HELP US WITH OUR FREE TEACHER WORKSHOP PROGRAM!


We are seeking a SCRAP-loving teacher to assist in teaching our workshops for SF educators. We seek applicants with experience teaching in K-12 classrooms (preferably public school) as well as some background providing professional development to adult learners. Curriculum is focused on hands-on projects and creative reuse to enliven the classroom and deepen student engagement. Applicants should come with ideas for projects as well as an open-mind towards collaborating with other instructors.


Workshops take place after school, evenings and sometimes weekends with a small group of educators in our SCRAP classroom. Materials are sourced from the SCRAP depot; the instructor will select materials to be used in the workshop and to inspire participants towards greater use of SCRAP as a classroom resource. All grade-levels (K-12) and subject areas are welcome. We prefer applicants with a range of creative ideas and demonstrated enthusiasm for hands-on joyful learning experiences.

TO APPLY, EMAIL DANIELLE GRANT/danielle@scrap-sf.org with your CV and brief letter of interest.
