Are you passionate about instilling a love of learning in curious young minds?  Are you inspired by the chance to be an influential member of an innovative educational community?

We are looking for individuals who excel at flexible and creative thinking; who see themselves as learners rather than lecturers; who have excellent content mastery as well as solid teaching experience; who are enthusiastic, highly motivated, committed, and eager to join a community that is passionate about supporting gifted children.

You will be expected to provide core instruction for small-group classes of grade 4-5 students while fostering an effective, engaged, student-centered learning environment. Opportunities for full-time employment, growth, and leadership are significant as the school continues to expand in the very near future.

  • Experience in elementary education.
  • A Pennsylvania teaching certificate or private academic certification (may be in process; we will help qualified candidates obtain certification).
  • Up-to-date (less than 1 year old) clearances prior to beginning work, including Federal Criminal History, PA State Criminal Record Check, PA Child Abuse History Clearance, Mandated Reporter training, TB test, Act 168, and any additional required clearances.
  • An appreciation of both the intellectual and the social-emotional needs of gifted children.
  • The ability to clearly articulate evaluations and opportunities for our students and school in both written and spoken communication.
  • You have an advanced degree in education, English, or literacy.
  • You have experience working with gifted children.
  • You have significant expertise in meeting the diverse needs of upper elementary language arts students, from reluctant readers and writers to fervent bibliophiles and novelists.
