This position requires at least 3 years of experience working with children PK-6thgrade as an Art Teacher. You must have completed a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in a related field. Master’s degree is highly desired.
We are a Spanish and Mandarin immersion school, and so native Spanish and Mandarin fluency is highly desired.
The Pine Street Art teacher generates an environment in which students can create and respond to art in various forms, nurturing and guiding their interests and ability for expression. You will be focusing on using the PYP visual arts curriculum and making real connections with the units of inquiry. You will plan collaboratively with other teachers, access materials, and execute teaching and learning experiences which not only teach visual art skills, but also an aesthetic appreciation for the range of visual arts, and the cultural elements of the arts.
Through the use of technology, our students develop and apply strategies for critical and creative thinking, engage in inquiry, make connections, and apply new understandings and skills in different contexts. We ask every teacher to embrace technology and see it as any tool that empowers the learner to broaden the expression of an idea (often artistically), innovate, solve a problem, learn something new, verify what they think they know, communicate and collaborate with others, and so much more.
