North Shore Country Day, a progressive, academically rigorous, co-ed, JK-12 independent school near Chicago, seeks candidates for a lower school co-lead teacher opening beginning at the start of the 2021-2022 academic year. The incoming teacher will serve as homeroom teachers and deliver instruction in English/Language Arts, mathematics, social studies, and social/emotional learning along with their co-teacher and an Assistant Teacher who is shared with another homeroom class. North Shore is eager to consider applications from groups traditionally underrepresented in independent school communities.
While a bachelor’s degree is required, a master’s degree in education is preferred. Candidates should have two or more years of teaching experience. Additionally, we seek candidates with an interest in working in a highly collaborative team environment and who demonstrate keen insight into the development of their students as individuals and learners. Ideal candidates will have a track record of being passionate advocates for their students, effective classroom managers, and cultivators of the ‘growth mindset.’ This individual must also partner well with parents, demonstrate excellent written and oral communication skills, be a collaborative, valued colleague and a life-long learner who is committed to their ongoing professional development.
NSCD competitive salaries that are commensurate with experience. Additionally, North Shore provides an excellent employee benefits program, including health and retirement benefits.
