SUBSTITUTE MUSIC TEACHER
Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to teach music from January 16 through March 9, 2018.
The person in this position teaches the music curriculum for the entire school – Junior Kindergarten through sixth grade. Students learn through a variety of methods and techniques, employing aural, visual and kinesthetic modes. The elements of music – rhythm, melody, harmony, form, style, and timbre are presented sequentially as the children are exposed to written music notation and sing, chant, play, and create various styles of music. Movement, listening and creative dramatics are also important parts of the classroom experience. In music class, children are part of an ensemble, whether playing instruments, singing or creating a role in a classroom drama; they discover the interdependence of group members in the learning process.
The ideal candidate for this position will have at least two years teaching experience and a background in music. This individual will demonstrate a dedication to honesty, kindness, respect and responsibility – the pillars of Rossman’s character program – in his/her interactions with children and adults. He/she will possess a strong work ethic, a love for teaching, an ability to effectively interact with parents, a good sense of humor, flexibility, adaptability, poise and an overall commitment to a child's academic and social betterment. Experience in an independent school is not required. Salary will be commensurate with other area independent schools and an applicant's experience.
