FOURTH GRADE TEACHER

Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to assume homeroom responsibilities for its 4th grade for the 2020-2021 academic year. A small by design school with one class per grade level, Rossman’s strong academic program challenges and stretches each student through team teaching with two experienced educators at all grade levels. Working collaboratively, the fourth grade homeroom teaching team jointly plans and teaches the language arts and mathematics curriculum.

This homeroom teacher must have strong expertise in teaching language arts. Rossman’s language arts curriculum focuses upon the development of strong reading skills in multiple genres through the use of high-interest novels and reading comprehension materials to cultivate a love for reading in young adults while teaching essential reading skills. The writing process is a critical focus of the language arts curriculum as well. Rossman School utilizes the 6+1 Traits of Writing program and Writer’s Workshop to assist in the instruction of young writers. A strong language arts teacher recognizes the importance of teaching and adapting to individual student needs and will have experience in utilizing tools and resources to support small group, differentiated learning in both writing and reading. Spelling, grammar, and vocabulary development are important facets of the language arts curriculum as well. The mathematics curriculum is based on the Everyday Mathematics Program.

The ideal candidate for this position will have at least three years experience teaching elementary children and have demonstrated 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, and a commitment to each child’s academic and social-emotional growth.  The successful candidate will be committed to collaborative team-teaching, working with his/her teammate to design effective and challenging curriculum, while also creating opportunities for interdisciplinary learning with specialist teachers in science, social studies, art, music and Spanish. The ability to work closely with colleagues requires flexibility, adaptability, confidence, and a sense of humor.

Experience in an independent school is not required. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with other area independent schools and an applicant's experience.
