Rossman School is currently seeking candidates for the following positions. Click a link to learn more.

Second Grade Teacher

Substitute Teacher



Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to assume homeroom responsibilities for its 2nd grade for the 2020-2021 academic year.  The ideal candidate will be paired with another 2nd grade homeroom teacher to form the 2nd grade homeroom teaching team.   

Working collaboratively, the 2nd grade homeroom teaching team jointly plans and teaches the language arts and mathematics curriculum. The language arts curriculum focuses on the development of strong reading skills through small group literature discussions, reading comprehension activities and independent book reports. To assist in the instruction of the writing process, Rossman utilizes the 6+1 Traits of Writing program. Additional emphasis is placed on spelling, grammar and vocabulary development.  The mathematics curriculum is based on the Everyday Mathematics program.

The 2nd grade homeroom team forms close working relationships with parents.  Frequent written and verbal communications provide the framework for these close relationships.  Written comments are provided to parents three times a year through a report card.  Teacher-parent conferences occur two times a year.  Other “less-formal” communications occur on an as-needed basis.

The ideal candidate for this position will have at least three years experience working with young children.  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, and a commitment to a child’s academic and socialemotional growth. The successful candidate will be committed to collaborative team-teaching, working with his/her teammate to design effective and challenging curriculum. The ability to work closely with a colleague in the classroom requires flexibility, adaptability, 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. 

To Apply


Rossman School is seeking energetic and responsible substitute teachers who enjoy working with children.
