Pine Cobble School seeks an extraordinary kindergarten teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This job is for you if you:
Connect powerfully with young children — you look children in the eye; embrace mistakes as the best learning opportunities; know that passion for learning is contagious; and aren’t afraid to belt out a tune or make up a silly dance if it helps get an idea across.
Understand that children’s greatest intellectual strides occur when you make room for spontaneous joy, creative thinking, and oodles of laughter.
Are a living, breathing role model for empathy, compassion, and respect.
Nurture children’s natural instincts. You encourage them to ask questions, solve problems, explore the world around them, wiggle, and play.
Know that children learn best when their parents and teachers work together. You maintain multiple open, ongoing lines of communication with families.
Are gifted at creating a supportive, wholesome classroom environment in which every student flourishes.
Pine Cobble School has set as a strategic priority amplifying historically marginalized voices in the classroom and ensuring that all intellectual inquiry both reflects and promotes broad perspectives and cultures; candidates who are committed to equity and justice are especially encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please submit your cover letter, resume, statement of purpose and references to Christy St. John at firstname.lastname@example.org, by August 11, 2017.
