Maret School is looking for an energetic, engaging, and experienced teacher who loves supporting students in a nurturing and challenging environment. We welcome teachers who are excited about joining a faculty committed to equity and inclusion, creating an anti-racist school, and reflecting Maret's Mission and Core Values. Our Grade 4 Homeroom Teacher is responsible for teaching language arts, math, and social studies to a small class of diverse students who are eager to learn. The ideal candidate will have classroom experience differentiating instructional strategies, strong communication skills, a comfort and nimbleness with technology, and will embrace modeling health & safety protocols in a school setting. Professionalism, maturity, and the ability to deal with unpredictability are vital in this role. This teacher will have the flexibility to work in either a virtual/distance learning, hybrid, or on-campus program. Qualified applicants should have a strong background in education and a minimum of five years of elementary-level classroom experience, preferably on the 4th grade level. The ideal candidate has knowledge of child development, experience with the Teachers College Reading and Writing Workshop, and an ability to work collaboratively with grade-level colleagues and resource teachers. The 4th Grade Homeroom Teacher reports directly to Director of Lower School Chris Appleby and plays an integral role in the Lower School, on the faculty, and transitioning our students into the Middle School.

At Maret, everyone seeks a broader perspective—an expanded understanding of each other, our community, and the larger world. Equity and inclusion are at the heart of all we do. Maret School stands firmly behind the principle that the admission of students, the employment of faculty, the operation of programs, and the governance of the School be open to all who are qualified regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. We believe that this principle is both firmly grounded in the spirit of American democracy and in keeping with the civil responsibilities of an independent school.
