Do you like to work with kids? Would you like to live and work in a pristine environment that's away from the city, but still not far away? CHOSS is located at Highland Springs Resort, a historic, 2400-acre property, certified organic farm with miles of hiking trails. There is a fine dining steakhouse on site as well as resort amenities.
Join a closely knit and supportive staff. Watch yourself grow as an individual and a teacher as you learn about this amazingly diverse area, research and develop your own lesson plans, design work projects, brainstorm and share ideas with your peers and teach elementary school students a sense of community, responsibility, and sustainability in a relaxed work environment.
CHOSS has an incredibly diverse representation of flora and fauna and not to mention tons of chaparral. We share the property with Highland Springs Resort, and working and living here is definitely an enjoyable experience. We have access to the resorts swimming pool (open seasonally May through Oct) workout room, tennis courts and basketball courts, and best of all The Grand Oak Steakhouse & Bar. Yes there is a restaurant and bar on property!
We are approx 90 miles east of LA & Hollywood, 50 miles from Joshua Tree National Park and even closer 25 miles from Palm Springs. Southern California is an amazing place to work and live and CHOSS is in a great location to explore everything.
