St. Francis is currently searching for a Program Head Coach & Motor Development Teacher for the 2021-22 school year. Search committees will start reviewing applications by the end of March 2021.
The Program Head Coach/PS Motor Development Teacher reports directly to the Director of Athletics and is an essential member of the Athletics and PE department, and Primary School faculty member. The Program Head Coach will complete the design and management of their sport including coaching and developing players. The Coach will provide leadership and organization working to build and grow the program into a 6th grade through varsity level sports program. All full-time athletics/physical education department members will coach three seasons or coach two seasons and teach one additional class. The Motor Development Teacher will work to introduce and strengthen fine and gross motor movement patterns and core strength for children in the Primary School, ages 2-5.
At St. Francis Episcopal School, we educate boys and girls from Pre-Primary through eleventh grade. In their time here, children advance through critical stages in the development of language, attention span, social skills, and problem-solving capabilities. They build study habits, self-discipline, and strengths in abstract thinking. They internalize values that will always stay with them and graduate as poised, confident young leaders.
We see the chance to guide children through these important years as a remarkable educational opportunity, and we apply best practices for engaging them during each phase of their growth. We offer an innovative, research-based curriculum; nationally acclaimed faculty; small classes; and a remarkable degree of personal attention.
We love our work and the children we teach, and we find that this spirit inspires a true love of learning in our students.
