Rossman School is searching for an experienced educator to serve as a part-time Senior Kindergarten teacher for the 2021-2022 academic year. The ideal candidate will work collaboratively with two full-time lead teachers as an integral part of the Senior Kindergarten team from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

The Senior Kindergarten teaching team jointly plans and teaches the language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. The primary focus of the language arts curriculum is reading and writing. The Senior Kindergarten team employs a variety of strategies including small guided reading groups, phonics activities, development of sight word vocabulary, and an introduction to a variety of children’s literature. For writing, the Senior Kindergarten team uses the Lucy Calkins’ Writing Workshop program. Through their personal writing projects, the students learn the primary foundation to writing, such as sentence structure, complete sentences and how to write a story.

The mathematics curriculum emphasizes the continued development of number sense and problem solving skills. The Everyday Math Level K program is implemented along with other teacher-designed lessons. These activities provide instruction to concepts, such as addition and subtraction, skip counting, graphing, time, money, geometry, and measurement.

Working from an established curriculum, the Senior Kindergarten team develops and executes developmentally-appropriate lessons in the areas of science and social studies. Students also enjoy specialty classes, including Spanish, library, music, art, science, and physical education.

Regular parent-teacher communication is an expectation at Rossman School. While the full-time Senior 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 Senior 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.
