Pine Cobble School, an independent day school, Pre-K through 9, seeks an enthusiastic STEAM teacher for the 2018-19 school year and beyond. In this position, you will develop and implement engaging, interdisciplinary project-based lessons to students in pre-K through fifth grade across multiple content areas (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics). You will also work with classroom teachers to integrate design thinking and STEAM learning into everything they do.
This job is for you if you:
Think across boundaries. You’re an innovator and explorer, a maker and discoverer, an enthusiastic lifelong learner. You’re eager to help children construct catapults; engineer robots; calculate the height of trees using only a protractor and a bit of know-how; analyze the exquisite geometry of Sol LeWitt; then make LeWitt-inspired wall drawings of their own.
Can expertly teach not only scientific and math skills, but also how to use these skills to solve real-world problems.
Understand that what children learn in school isn’t merely information to be memorized for a test, but rather tools with which they will remake the world.
Are simultaneously bold and practical, ambitious and in-the-trenches, adaptable and adaptive. You’re ready to take a school with a solid foundation in project-based learning and 21st century learning skills to the next level.
Set grand, reach-for-the-stars goals for yourself and your students, know how to translate these aspirations into a concrete plan, and have the work ethic and drive to get it done.
Understand both the scientific method and design thinking principles. To you, there’s no sweeter sound than a child saying, “what if…” or “how could I…”
Aspire not only to nourish children’s minds, but also to stir their hearts and souls.
Are eager to build a curriculum that makes incredible STEAM learning a signature part of the Pine Cobble experience.
