Curtis is seeking a Lower Elementary Teacher to join a team-oriented, inclusive, and professional learning community. Curtis School is a DK-6 co-ed elementary school whose mission is to “develop, in every child, a sound mind in a sound body, governed by a compassionate heart.”
We place an equal emphasis on academic, physical, social-emotional, and character education and instill a growth mindset modeled by faculty and staff who are the best in their craft. The Lower Elementary Teacher will be responsible for maintaining a positive learning environment in their homeroom and creating a program that meets the intellectual and emotional needs of each child. The successful candidate will work closely with a co-lead or associate teacher and colleagues in their grade level (Grades DK-2nd) under the supervision of the Director of Lower Elementary to build an engaging curriculum that fulfills Curtis’s mission and values. The candidate must have excellent time-management, organizational, and communication skills, be innovative and creative in instructional planning, dynamic and adaptable to shifting work conditions, and open to feedback. A collegial personality and responsiveness to direction are essential traits, as is a love of working with primary school-aged children.
