Google is hiring again for the position I filled last school year. If the listing looks interesting to you (and I can't really speak to the particulars of the project anymore) and you're interested in a year-long sabbatical from the classroom, I highly recommend the experience. The management was awesome. You'll have a better sense of where programming fits into math and science education. Plus, you'll get to develop some professional muscles that you likely haven't exercised while teaching. Like creating project specs from scratch, collaborating daily with engineers, forcing your body to urinate even though a bell hasn't told you you're allowed to, and trying to figure out what you're supposed to do with the hours between 5PM and 11PM every day.

    Damn, the commute from NY would kill me.

    Is there a salary or stipend?

    I too would like to know if this is a paid position. If there is, what kind of pay are we talking about?

    This was a salaried internship position last year at Google. Without getting into specifics, the pay was much more than I was making as a sixth-year math teacher in California.

    Darn, I can’t wait when more jobs are an option without having to live in the same city.

    Very interesting idea. I have spent the last year out of the classroom and miss it terribly. Maybe next year I will consider.
