The ideal candidates will have experience teaching in two-dimensional disciplines, and specifically photography (both traditional film and digital). Applicants should be able to process film and operate a darkroom, as well as have the knowledge of transferring and manipulating digital photo files. A candidate with strong drawing skills and experience in painting techniques is a plus.

UPPER SCHOOL DIRECTOR

Rossman School is seeking an experienced leader for its Upper School (grades 3-6), beginning August 1, 2019.  The Upper School Director works closely with the Lower School Director and Head of School to fulfill the school’s mission – Rossman School provides a strong, well-balanced education in a nurturing school community committed to excellence — and to uphold Rossman’s guiding principles of kindness, honesty, respect and responsibility. 

The Upper School Director works collaboratively with the Lower School Director to ensure that the school’s curriculum and programs support the school’s mission and standards of excellence.  The Directors provide leadership for curriculum reviews, maintain the Curriculum Guide, and support the faculty’s implementation of all curriculum. Rossman School uses Educational Records Bureau Comprehensive Testing Program 5 (ERB CTP-5) as a tool to assess the progress of individual students and classes as well as the overall academic program.  The Upper and Lower School Directors carefully analyze school-wide test results on an annual basis and share their findings with the Board, faculty and parent community.  They engage in regular professional development in order to stay abreast of current best practices and thoughtfully apply this knowledge to the school’s curriculum.   

Strong relations between the Upper School Director and faculty are critical to the school’s continuing growth.  The Upper School Director supports homeroom and specialty teachers for grades three through six by observing classes and providing consistent feedback.  The Upper and Lower School Directors encourage the growth of all faculty members by organizing in-service workshops, leading division meetings, and informing the faculty of external professional development opportunities.  They also support teachers new to Rossman School through the New Teacher Program.

Rossman School believes in meeting the needs of individual children.  The school’s unique team teaching model supports this goal by lowering student-teacher ratios and enabling teachers to differentiate curriculum on a daily basis.  The Upper and Lower School Directors work collaboratively with the faculty to develop productive “team teaching” as defined by the school and maximize differentiation of curriculum.  Additionally, the Upper School Director works closely with the Learning Specialist and Upper School faculty to meet more specific needs of individual children.  This work includes facilitating student review meetings, communicating with parents, providing a historical perspective of children’s progress, and determining action plans for individual students.

The Upper School Director oversees the After School Enrichment and Extended Day program including planning all enrichment classes, hiring assistant teachers and serving as the faculty & parent liaison. The Upper School Director consistently checks in with all extended day staff to ensure they are aware of student learning differences and best strategies to work with students, as well as to promote positive behavior management.

Additional responsibilities of the Upper School Director include:

  • Participating in the interview and hiring process for open faculty positions
  • Participating in secondary school admissions/placement process
  • Hiring and supervising substitute teachers
  • Planning and executing Parent Education programs
  • Coordinating weekly student gatherings and periodic school assemblies
  • Leading Student Council

The ideal candidate for this position will have experience as a teacher of school-age children and in leadership roles.  He/she will possess a background in teaching.  He/she will collaborate with other teachers/administrators to further the school’s mission.  He/she will possess strong written and verbal communication skills as well as the ability to successfully and wisely navigate challenging conversations with students, parents and teachers.  The ideal candidate will demonstrate a strong work ethic, flexibility, adaptability, poise and an overall commitment to a child’s academic and social 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.  A master’s degree in school administration or leadership is preferred.
