St. James' Episcopal School is a diverse, joyful, and inclusive community of learners. With a focus on academic excellence and attention to the needs of each child, we strive to instill in our students intellectual curiosity, compassion for others, and respect for all of God's creation. We are a preschool thru sixth grade, with a student body of 370 students and a faculty of 70.
Our preschool is in need of some helping hands! Separated by one city block, the preschool is housed in a separate location from the elementary school, and you will be greeted daily by a kind and friendly staff of 14, along with 60 students, ages 2 1/2 to 5 years, and their enthusiastic parents, some of whom serve as volunteers for extra support.
Though we are best known for our traditional educational approaches, we also believe that children should have the opportunity to construct meaning as they assimilate knowledge. Rather than merely providing rote learning in our classrooms, we encourage our teachers to stretch the children's ability to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate what they learn; to apply their learning to new situations; and to present confidently and in a variety of formats what they have learned.
The qualified applicant will have a minimum of twenty-four early childhood education units, and at least three years of preschool teaching experience. He or she will be active in the classroom and work with other teachers on every aspect of the day, engaging with the children as they explore their learning environments and encourage learning through play.
Must be able to work well with colleagues, administrators, and other professionals in the community. The operating hours are 8:00am-5:30pm and the position is full-time, Monday-Friday, beginning July 1, 2018. Compensation is competitive with a full benefits package.
If you love children, and are innovative, collaborative, energetic and imaginative, with the credentials to match, please submit your application today. For more information, or to apply now, please visit our website.
