The Grayson School is looking for a part-time Spanish teacher to join our team in January, 2020! This is a unique opportunity to become a part of the first school specifically designed to meet the needs of gifted students in Pennsylvania. You will have a chance to join the extraordinary faculty of an up-and-coming independent school with a mission to serve as an exemplar for gifted education and educational innovation.

YOU MUST HAVE:
Passion, creativity, and content expertise.
A Pennsylvania teaching certificate or private academic certification (may be in process; we will help qualified candidates obtain certification).
Up-to-date (less than 1 year old) clearances prior to beginning work, including Federal Criminal History, PA State Criminal Record Check, PA Child Abuse History Clearance, Mandated Reporter training, TB test, Act 168, and any additional required clearances.
Sensitivity to and awareness of the social and emotional characteristics of gifted children.
The ability to clearly articulate evaluations and opportunities for our students and school in both written and spoken communication.
