Join our team at SF Day! We are seeking an experienced classroom teacher who likes and understands children, knows and communicates the subject matter well, and who hopes to play an active role in the SF Day community.
At San Francisco Day School, we believe that when intellect and imagination are intertwined, students delight in the discovery of connection: in their academic and creative pursuits, in their relationships, and in all that they experience here. Every day we help our students emerge as flexible and resourceful learners. Because when we do, our students light up with the call and capacity to take on the complexities of their day and of a diverse world.
