Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to teach science to Senior Kindergarten, first, second, and third grade students and social studies to third grade students.
The Lower School science curriculum allows students to explore their natural curiosity and develop an enthusiasm and love for science. Students broaden their current understanding of the world by actively participating in inquiry-based experimentation and hands-on activities. The curriculum exposes children to content in life and physical sciences, while building a strong foundation in the scientific process.
The third grade social studies curriculum has a strong emphasis on U.S. geography and the state of Missouri. Historical and cultural studies are included within this study. The third grade social studies teacher has the unique opportunity to integrate science and social studies concepts.
The teacher forms close working relationships with parents. Frequent communication provides the framework for these relationships. Written comments are provided to parents three times a year through a report card. Parent-teacher conferences occur two times a year. Other “less formal” communications occur on an as-needed basis.
The ideal candidate for this position will have experience teaching within an elementary school setting and a background in science and social studies. 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 growth. Experience in an independent school is not required. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with other area independent schools and an applicant's experience. The selected candidate will assume his/her responsibilities on August 1, 2019.
