Pine Cobble School Employment Opportunities

First Grade Teacher

Pine Cobble School seeks an outstanding first grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. This job is for you if you:

  • Are an exceptionally well-prepared elementary educator with an established and powerful track record. It’s already a given that you can deliver a rock-solid foundation across subject matters… you also know a special secret: that the deepest learning is fueled by joy.  
  • Believe in high standards…without standardization.
  • Know that children flourish with the right balance of work and play, and understand that children learn from both.
  • Routinely push yourself out of your comfort zone, because you know this makes it possible for students to do the same.
  • Are on a first-name basis with Mercy Watson, Elmer Elevator, Amos McGee, and Ada Twist, Scientist. You know how Peter spent that snowy day, what happens when you give a moose a muffin, and where the sidewalk ends….and you’re totally ready to let the wild rumpus begin.
  • Learned something new yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that. (Because that’s what lifelong learners do).
  • Are passionate about inspiring not only good students, but also good human beings.
  • Have endless energy, an unbridled passion for teaching, and a terrific sense of humor.

Pine Cobble School has set as a strategic priority amplifying historically marginalized voices in the classroom and ensuring that all intellectual inquiry both reflects and promotes broad perspectives and cultures; candidates who are committed to equity and justice are especially encouraged to apply.  If you are interested, please submit your cover letter, resume, statement of purpose and references to Christy St. John at [email protected], by May 31, 2019.
