The Hamlin School seeks a dedicated teacher to supervise students in our outdoor and indoor drop in play spaces after school. Our Extended Day Programs are centered around the idea of students having space for free play and free choice after school. The Extended Day teacher should be comfortable interacting with students from grades K-8, be willing to jump in and solve issues as they arise, and be willing to work with students by keeping their social emotional needs at the forefront of all encounters. Hamlin teachers are caring, compassionate, collaborative, and are dedicated to the education of girls.
