Pine Point School is seeking a part-time French teacher who understands the cognitive and developmental needs of young children and adolescents and who has the ability to differentiate instruction. The successful candidate will have the ability to collaborate with colleagues in a progressive learning environment and be dedicated to the Pine Point School mission of helping students engage in developing a strong academic and ethical core, a lifelong curiosity about their world, and a commitment to reaching solutions creatively, collaboratively, and compassionately.
Instruction is provided through a collaborative, active and engaging curriculum focused on developing language skills and an appreciation for other cultures. Lower school students develop proficiency in oral and written communication in French through the integration of language skills and concepts taught in the content areas.
Lower school students are introduced to vocabulary and grammar through our integrated program, while middle school students continue learning with a more formal study of French. The position includes writing report cards/comments, conferencing with parents, and maintaining consistent communication with colleagues and parents of students. Participation in our school environment such as advising, coaching, leading co-curricular programs and field trips is expected.

From the earliest stages of learning, we cultivate meaningful social and emotional growth and provide an engaging learning environment. Arts, athletics, service learning, and technology are integral components of our developmentally appropriate curriculum. Both on campus and beyond our walls, we build relationships to nurture the whole child while developing core values and ethical citizenship. By providing a safe and supportive environment, we inspire confidence and develop self-esteem. We encourage our students to welcome challenges, learn from their mistakes, and apply what they learn to improve their world.
