PART-TIME SENIOR KINDERGARTEN TEACHER

Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to serve as a part-time Senior Kindergarten teacher for the 2021-2022 academic year. The ideal candidate will work collaboratively with two full-time lead teachers as an integral part of the Senior Kindergarten team from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The Senior Kindergarten teaching team jointly plans and teaches the language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. The primary focus of the language arts curriculum is reading and writing. The Senior Kindergarten team employs a variety of strategies including small guided reading groups, phonics activities, development of sight word vocabulary, and an introduction to a variety of children’s literature. For writing, the Senior Kindergarten team uses the Lucy Calkins’ Writing Workshop program. Through their personal writing projects, the students learn the primary foundation to writing, such as sentence structure, complete sentences and how to write a story.

The mathematics curriculum emphasizes the continued development of number sense and problem solving skills. The Everyday Math Level K program is implemented along with other teacher-designed lessons. These activities provide instruction to concepts, such as addition and subtraction, skip counting, graphing, time, money, geometry, and measurement.

Working from an established curriculum, the Senior Kindergarten team develops and executes developmentally-appropriate lessons in the areas of science and social studies. Students also enjoy specialty classes, including Spanish, library, music, art, science, and physical education.

Regular parent-teacher communication is an expectation at Rossman School. While the full-time Senior Kindergarten teachers assume the main responsibility for this communication, the part-time teacher interacts with the students in an instructional format on a daily basis and is, therefore, considered a source of valuable input. This individual works as a part of the Senior Kindergarten team to complete progress reports, including written comments, but is not expected to participate in parent-teacher conferences or to make parent phone calls.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a minimum of two years experience working with young children. He/she will be committed to collaborative team-teaching and designing effective and challenging curriculum for talented students. He/she will possess a strong work ethic, a love for teaching, the ability to work closely with colleagues in the classroom, flexibility, adaptability, and an overall commitment to a child's academic and social emotional 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. Benefits are not provided for part-time employees.

To Apply

Please email cover letter and resume to jkaiser@rossmanschool.org with “Senior Kindergarten Teacher Search Committee” in the subject line.

 

PERMANENT SUBSTITUTE & EXTENDED DAY SUPERVISOR

Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to serve as a permanent substitute & Extended Day supervisor for the 2021-2022 academic year. As a full-time member of the faculty, the permanent substitute assumes instructional responsibilities for both short- and long-term faculty absences. 

By building strong relationships with colleagues and students, the permanent substitute is able to provide a seamless transition during any teacher’s absence.

Responsibilities may include working with small groups of students, co-teaching a lesson, assessing student work, or preparing materials for a future lesson.

The permanent substitute also helps supervise the school’s Extended Day program. Because of these combined responsibilities, the permanent substitute is expected to remain at school until 4:15 p.m. on a daily basis.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a bachelor’s degree in education, a minimum of two years experience teaching in an elementary school, and strong organizational and communication skills, allowing him/her to balance multiple roles.
