Crestmont School inspires children to be changemakers. We cultivate a learning environment where students become critical and creative thinkers, skillful collaborators, and courageous, compassionate citizens. Founded in 1969, Crestmont Elementary School is located in East Richmond Heights, and our families come from a variety of East Bay communities. Our cooperative structure is based on a strong partnership between staff and families and supports our students’ success.
We are looking for a dynamic teacher to lead our mixed-grade elementary class. The teacher will be responsible for all language arts, social studies, and math for their class.
