TASIS Elementary School is seeking an experienced Elementary School Teacher for Grade 4 and another for Grade 5. Applicants must be fully credentialed/certified for their respective assignments and must maintain both teaching excellence and credentials throughout employment. Writers Workshop is an important part of our balanced literacy philosophy; applicants with experience using the model are preferred. We also prefer a Master's degree and at least 5 years of teaching experience. We seek individuals who are flexible, open-minded, well travelled and collaborative as we work in teaching teams. Our school has a high EAL (English as an additional Language) population and we have a diverse student and teacher population. A background in EAL and familiarity with the WIDA model is advantageous.
Familiarity with Responsive Classroom, Words Their Way, Lucy Calkins Writer's Workshop, and/or Singapore math or Math in Focus would be a positive.
