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 Carolina Zapata
Green Ivy Schools was founded by Dr. Jennifer Jones in New York City in 2012 to serve as a foundational network of schools representing best practices in education worldwide.
The first two schools in the Green Ivy family are Pine Street School (Nursery-8th Grade) and Battery Park Montessori (Nursery-Kindergarten). These are “sister schools” and serve as two campuses in the Green Ivy network.
Both schools offer internationally respected models of education (International Baccalaureate and Montessori), exceptional teachers, empassioned leaders, multilingual instruction and forward-thinking approaches. And both embody the warmth and sense of community that lets you know you are in a Green Ivy School.
Our program of instruction encourages curiosity, supports student agency, and is rooted in our students' experiences of the global world. These pedagogical traits, coupled with our integration of technology, have prepared our students and our entire learning community exceptionally well for Remote Learning.
In our Remote Learning approach, you see that our dedicated faculty create the familiarity and expectations of the school routine in the virtual classrooms with the whole g...roup, differentiated groups, and independent instruction. Our students, as digital natives, are at ease with the online environment, and quickly develop the capacity to present their world and follow through on engaging and intellectually rigorous lessons and assignments. We are proud that we are not only providing rich learning opportunities, but enhancing the depth of the understanding and development that takes place.
