JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN PART-TIME TEACHER

 

Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to serve as a part-time Junior Kindergarten Teacher for the 2019-20 academic year. The ideal candidate will work collaboratively with two full-time teachers as an integral part of the Junior Kindergarten team.

 

The Junior Kindergarten teaching team jointly plans and teaches the language arts, mathematics, science, and art curricula.  A primary focus of the language arts curriculum is the development of pre-reading skills.  The mathematics curriculum emphasizes the development of number sense and problem solving skills. Working from an established curriculum, the Junior Kindergarten team develops and executes developmentally appropriate lessons in the areas of science and art.  Students travel to specialty classes for Spanish, library, music, and physical education.

Regular parent-teacher communication is an expectation at Rossman School.  While the full-time Junior 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 Junior 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 at least three years experience working with young children and bachelor’s or advanced degree in the field of education. He/she will be committed to the notion of collaborative team-teaching and designing effective and challenging curriculum for talented students. He/she will possess a strong work ethic, a love for teaching, a good sense of humor, the ability to work closely with colleagues in the classroom, flexibility, adaptability, and an overall commitment to a child's academic and social betterment. Experience in an independent school is not required. Salary will be commensurate with other area independent schools and an applicant's experience. Benefits are not provided for part-time employees.

Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to teach music for the 2019-2020 academic year.

The person in this position plans and teaches the music curriculum for the entire school – Junior Kindergarten through sixth grade. Students learn through a variety of methods and techniques, employing aural, visual, and kinesthetic modes. The elements of music – rhythm, melody, harmony, form, style, and timbre are presented sequentially as the children are exposed to written music notation and sing, chant, play, and create various styles of music. Movement, listening, and creative dramatics are also important parts of the classroom experience. In music class, children are part of an ensemble, whether playing instruments, singing, or creating a role in a classroom drama; they discover the interdependence of group members in the learning process.

Under the direction of the music teacher, the entire student body participates in two major choral performances, the Holiday Program and the Grandparents’ Day Program. These annual programs, which incorporate aspects of the music curriculum, are important traditions at Rossman School. The music teacher is responsible for planning the programs, preparing the children, and directing the performances.

 

The music teacher forms close working relationships with parents.  Frequent communication provides the framework for these relationships. Written comments are provided to parents three times a year through a report card.  Teacher-parent conferences occur two times a year. Other “less formal” communications occur on an as-needed basis.

The ideal candidate for this position will have at least three years teaching experience and a background in music. This individual will demonstrate a dedication to honesty, kindness, respect, and responsibility – the pillars of Rossman’s character program – in his/her interactions with children and adults.  He/she will possess a strong work ethic, a love for teaching, and an ability to effectively interact with parents, a good sense of humor, flexibility, adaptability, poise and an overall commitment to a child's academic and social betterment. Experience in an independent school is not required. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with other area independent schools and an applicant's experience.
