The Associate Kindergarten Teacher will work in partnership with the Lead Teacher, and report to the Director of the Lower School. The position differs from that of Assistant Teacher in level of responsibility as well as reporting structure, in that the Associate will have primary responsibility for overseeing specific aspects of the academic curriculum in Kindergarten – art, science, handwriting and social studies. The Lead Teacher is responsible for literacy, math and technology, although the expectation is that both teachers will support the implementation of lesson plans in all subjects.
The Associate Teacher, along with the Lead Teacher, is also responsible for the general supervision and management of all aspects of a classroom of 16 students, including not only the academic growth, but also the social and moral growth.
