Position Description:

POSITION DESCRIPTION Teachers are what bring the The Children’s School mission to life. They make the School warm and welcoming as well as an exciting place to learn for children. Serving as friendly guides, the teachers foster children’s understanding of how important it is that they respect themselves as well as one another. Each staff member has a key role to play in creating this environment, especially given the small student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1.

A sophisticated coaching system provides ongoing professional development as does the School’s commitment to support teachers who wish to further their training and education. In addition, the School’s cutting-edge use of technology means that every teacher becomes proficient in using PDA technologies as well as in the digital production and editing of DVD portfolios.

QUALIFICATIONS A strong commitment to—and love of—working with young children is required. A strong affinity for working in a small school is also helpful. Applicants must possess: -Bachelor’s degree from a 4-year college or university -Professional maturity and confidence -A desire to get to know children and their parents well -Effective oral, written and listening skills -Familiarity with computer software and hardware programs -A willingness to work in a multi-age classroom -Enthusiasm for working collaboratively as part of a team -A commitment to the School’s mission and philosophy -Enthusiasm, optimism and a strong belief in nurturing children’s intellectual, social and creative potential -A genuine love of learning LOCATION Stamford, Connecticut.
