Trinity School, a co-educational, K-12 institution located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, seeks a number of Lower School Associate Teachers for Grades 1, 2, and 3 beginning September 1, 2019.
The Associate Teacher program in the Lower School is designed for college graduates interested in pursuing a teaching career. In most cases, the appointment is for two years, in the same classroom. The Associate Teacher works alongside an experienced classroom teacher, sharing in all aspects of classroom life.
When considering a candidate for an Associate Teacher position, Trinity looks for candidates who are just getting started in the field and are eager to learn from an experienced teacher. Many Associate candidates have one or two years of student teaching experience in either independent, charter, or public schools. They may have completed or be working towards a master’s degree. Every so often, a candidate is a mid-career changer with almost no experience in the classroom but a great deal of life experience to contribute.
Regardless of prior experience, ideal Associate Teacher candidates are eager to learn, flexible in thinking, comfortable working with children, interested in contributing to conversations about instruction and curriculum, and above all, collaborative in nature.
An Equal Opportunity Employer, Trinity School seeks candidates who will add to the diversity of our school community.
