ACES has two teacher openings

The Aspen Center for Environmental Studies has openings for environmental educators at two of its sites, Rock Bottom Ranch and Hallam Lake.

Education Director Arin Trook said he hopes to have the two positions filled by April 15, with an application deadline of March 15. Both are year-long, salaried positions which carry an option for employment renewal. Employment dates are August 2014 to August 2015.

Trook said the ideal candidates will have both classroom and outdoor education experience, with an emphasis on kindergarten through fourth grade. A background in natural sciences is also a plus, he said.

Hallam Lake staff is based at ACES’ 25-acre nature preserve located in Aspen. Hallam Lake educators primarily focus their classroom time at the Aspen Elementary School. The Hallam Lake position also requires mandatory housing at the Hallam Lake preserve.

The Rock Bottom Ranch staff is based at ACES’ 113-acre ranch located in Basalt. Rock Bottom Ranch educators primarily focus their classroom time at the Basalt Elementary School and Crystal River Elementary School.

Cover letters, resumes and completed applications should be emailed to Trook at, along with indication of which position the individual is applying for. Candidates are permitted to apply for both positions.
