3/5 Spanish Teacher K-8th grade, 2017-2018 school year

High Meadow School has an opening for a 3/5 Spanish teacher for the 2017-18 school year. High Meadow is a progressive, independent school that fosters creative and intellectual discovery, civic engagement, and personal growth.  Our diverse and inclusive culture honors each child’s approach to constructing knowledge, and encourages risk-taking in academic and artistic pursuits.

The candidate for the Spanish position should be comfortable with a combination of different approaches and techniques to language teaching and learning, including the Total Physical Response in order to support the joy of learning a foreign language for all students. The successful candidate will recognize the importance of developing Spanish conversation in both large and small group formats and will be flexible and able to teach developmentally appropriate lessons from K-8 through the use of hands-on and playful approaches which integrate cultural elements. He/she will understand the importance of encouraging students to take risks, to make mistakes, and to invent and find creative ways to express themselves in Spanish.

Degree in Education and a minimum of one year of teaching experience is preferred. Fluency in Spanish is required.
