Are you passionate about sharing knowledge with eager young minds? Are you inspired by the chance to be an influential member of an innovative educational community? Grayson School students are advanced, curious, and eager to learn. We are looking for individuals who excel at flexible and creative thinking; who see themselves as learners rather than lecturers; who have excellent content mastery as well as solid teaching experience; who are enthusiastic, highly motivated, committed, and eager to join a community that is passionate about supporting gifted children.
You will be expected to teach small classes across all grades while fostering an effective, engaged, student-centered learning environment. A central pillar of a Grayson education, Projects classes engage our students in challenging, experiential, hands-on-learning activities. Cross-disciplinary topics allow students to collaborate, lean into their strengths, and work as a team on complex, design-oriented outcomes. Our projects classes inspire our gifted students to expand their creative problem-solving skills, constructively deal with failure, and bring their incredible ideas to life.
This position is preferrably full-tim. Opportunities for growth, professional development, full-time employment, and leadership are significant as the school continues to expand in the very near future. We have a competitive benefits package and want to invest in our teachers. This is a unique and exciting place to work for individuals who want to take initiative with their teaching!
YOU MUST HAVE:
- Experience in project management and/or teaching project-based learning.
- Experience teaching cross-curricularly.
- An interest in leading classes through deep, student-centered learning.
- A Pennsylvania teaching certificate or private academic certification (may be in process; we will help qualified candidates obtain certification).
- Up-to-date (less than 1 year old) clearances prior to beginning work, including Federal Criminal History, PA State Criminal Record Check, PA Child Abuse History Clearance, Mandated Reporter training, TB test, Act 168, and any additional required clearances.
- An appreciation of both the intellectual and the social-emotional needs of gifted children.
- The ability to clearly articulate evaluations and opportunities for our students and school in both written and spoken communication.
IT WOULD BE AWESOME IF:
- You are a polymath.
- You are fluent in safety protocols and various tool usage including routers, 3-D printers, and various power tools.
- You have experience and/or interest in theatre tech or set design.
- You have studied project management as a discipline.
