What does AR, VR and AI stand for in your world? How familiar, but mostly, how comfortable are you using these? Pine Street School is welcoming teachers who are highly skilled in technology, with experience using a wide range of digital tools, media and learning environments for teaching, learning and assessing.
The Art teacher is an inspiring artist devoted to students, recognizing and appreciating the nature of incorporating art and technology into the classroom as tools used to explore new ways of expressing and creating. The ideal candidate will provide students with environments for teaching, learning and assessing where these two work as one.
The ideal candidate believes art, design & technology provide opportunities for the transformation of teaching and learning and enables students to investigate, create, communicate, collaborate, organize and be responsible for their own learning and actions.
The Pine Street Art teacher is responsible for generating an environment in which students can create and respond to art in various forms, nurturing and guiding their interests and ability for expression. The teacher will be focusing on using visual arts curriculum and making real connections with the units of inquiry, planning collaboratively with other teachers, accessing materials, and executing teaching and learning experiences which not only teach visual art skills, but also an aesthetic appreciation for the range of visual arts, and the cultural elements of the arts.
Pine Street School has no walls, our teachers are encouraged to navigate the city and research sources, to get real-life experiences.
Teachers work closely with the Head of School to evaluate student progress, support the teaching team and build their practice. Professional development, planning sessions & frequent parent communications are one of our team’s priorities.

About Pine Street School
Green Ivy Schools is the innovative, community-based venture founded by school development expert and Lower Manhattan mother, Dr. Jennifer Jones. Green Ivy offers modern, community-inspired private schools that address the Lower Manhattan school shortage while providing a rich, engaging alternative to traditional private education.
WE HAVE 2 SCHOOLS:
Battery Park Montessori: Nestled among trees and tucked away on the riverfront in South Battery Park City. Certified educators guide students as they explore Montessori materials in an inspiring environment where light, nature and water are ever-present themes. The program enrolls children 2 through 6 years. Our trilingual language program complements a young child’s natural predisposition to new sounds and rhythms. As Maria Montessori’s observations and current brain research has shown, children’s sensitive period to language is from 0 to 6 years old. At Battery Park Montessori, we expose our children to both Mandarin and Spanish throughout the day.
Pine Street School: A Spanish and Mandarin immersion preschool and elementary school, with Middle School launching officially in Fall 2020 with 6thGrade, growing through 8thGrade... year by year. We are Lower Manhattan's only International Baccalaureate (IB) school offering the Primary Years Programme. Our curriculum is inherently STEAM-based, promoting hands-on experiences that fuel innovative thinking and cultivate a culture of teamwork and collaboration in support of global citizenship. Our space is modern and innovative, with creative architectural features that evoke nature and inspire learning.
