3rd/4th Grade Teacher
Lansdowne Friends School seeks a full-time 3rd/4th grade teacher to begin in September of 2022. They will lead one of our two 3rd/4th grade homerooms composed of approximately 14-15 students each. The teaching responsibilities include teaching Language Arts to the mixed-grade homeroom group, teaching math to the 4th graders from both homerooms, and teaching social studies to mixed-grade students from both homerooms. Students will study science with the other homeroom teacher at the same time that the rest of the students are studying social studies.
Close coordination and collaboration with the other 3rd/4th grade teacher is critical, as the two homerooms are both separate groupings but also very closely intertwined. In a very real sense, all 28-30 of the 3rd/4th grade students are under your combined care. The position includes communicating closely with families, coordinating field trips, service projects, and leadership opportunities on and off campus, and collaborating with the other homeroom teachers across the school, and with the “specials” teachers who teach art, music, PE, shop, and Spanish.
Key qualities and qualifications sought include:
Salary Range: $39,500 to $51,880, depending on experience and educational background. This position comes with a full menu of benefits, including a retirement plan, health insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, and support for professional development.
