Our young school is still in its planned growth period and we continue to add talented staff to our team as we grow.
Our teachers are creative, innovative, and excited to implement our progressive, arts-integrated, project-based curriculum. Our school values social and emotional learning as much as it values academics, and we are seeking teachers who can bring these values to life in the classroom. Our teachers are skilled at finding and nurturing each child’s unique interests and learning style.
Teacher applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree, have previous teaching experience at the Early Childhood or elementary school level and meet Maryland teacher certification requirements.
TEACHING FROM OUR CORE VALUES
We are a Community Our school community operates as a family. Our supportive environment allows safe space for teachers to take risks in their practice and grow professionally.
We Connect with Each Other, Our Environment, Our Neighborhood, & Our World Connection with students is critical. One-on-one relationships with students will break down barriers and open doors for deep learning. Our place-based approach uses the built and natural environments around us as a foundation for learning, bringing authenticity and personal connections for students.
We Care Care for one another (among students, families, staff, and school-wide) is at the core of our thinking. As a Community School we are a resource hub for students, families, and our surrounding community that can be responsive to unique needs. We care deeply about equity for all students across racial, socio-economic, and other boundaries.
We Question We build on the inquisitive nature of children to drive our project-based, arts-integrated curriculum, with the goal of fostering self-directed critical thinkers. We also constantly reflect on and adjust our own practice as a school.
We Collaborate Our shared governance structure enables all stakeholders to participate in critical decision-making for our school. Collaboration and peer-to-peer learning is key, and fostered through a schedule that prioritizes common planning time for teams and ongoing professional development. These are also values we instill in our students through ongoing practice in collaborative classroom work.
We Create What one child easily learns from reading a text, another might need to experience differently to fully process. We prioritize art class and music class, as well as arts-integrated study in the general classroom to appeal to all learning styles. Teachers are not required to practice their own art form, but unique creative expression among teaching staff is welcomed and encouraged.
