Almaden Country School (ACS) is now accepting applications for a 5th grade homeroom position. The current teacher will be on maternity leave from January – June, 2014.
We seek teaching candidates who are well versed in developmental pedagogy and differentiated teaching methods, and who are committed to providing individualized attention to our students and parents. A collaborative work style and a receptive attitude toward cooperative efforts are required in our small school. All positions involve additional required duties, such as field trip supervision (including overnights for upper elementary and middle school grades). Teachers are held to high expectations for meeting the needs of our children and families.
The school's mission is to "discover the gifts in every child." ACS promotes the belief that children learn best when instruction is age-appropriate, highly individualized, and joyful. Homeroom teachers teach language arts, math, and social studies, and students go to specialists for science, art, music, PE, foreign language, and drama.
If you are a dynamic and caring educator, passionate about children, and prepared to work very hard (and have fun!) with amazing young people and wonderful peers, send a letter of interest and résumé to: Cecilia Robb, email@example.com. Qualified candidates will have classroom experience. Interviews begin immediately and remain open until filled.
