Pine Cobble School seeks an outstanding third grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This job is for you if you:
Are an exceptionally well-prepared elementary educator with an established and powerful track record. It’s already a given that you can deliver a rock-solid foundation across subject matters...but you also know a special secret: that the deepest learning is fueled by joy.
Believe in high standards...without standardization.
Know that children flourish when hard work is punctuated by spontaneous bursts of laughter, and when serious learning becomes seriously fun.
Routinely push yourself out of your comfort zone, because you know this makes it possible for students to do the same.
Believe that maybe -- just maybe -- a giant peach really might be the vehicle for an around-the-world adventure. Or that a spider and a pig can become true and lasting friends.
Learned something new yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that. (Because that’s what lifelong learners do).
Are passionate about inspiring not only good students, but also good human beings.
Have endless energy, an unbridled passion for teaching, and a terrific sense of humor.
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 14, 2017.
