Description

Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation's Capital is an independent, community Jewish day school that currently offers a dual curriculum of General and Judaic studies for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8. The school is distinguished by its commitment to academic excellence, talented faculty, and learning that is joyful, engaging, experiential, and enduring. MILTON is a warm, vibrant, pluralistic Jewish day school where students, families, and faculty mirror the diversity of Jewish practice in the community. The school serves more than 475 students at our Kay and Robert Schattner Center Campuses - the beautiful South Campus for Early Childhood students in Grades PK-1, and the newly renovated and expanded North Campus for Elementary and Middle School students in Grades 2-8.

  • Communicating with parents through conferences and other means to discuss students’ progress and interpret the school program.

Job Requirements

Serving as a teacher at MILTON means more than showing up in a classroom to deliver instruction. Rich mission-aligned content, creative pedagogy and authentic relationships are essential components of a MILTON classroom, as much as working collaboratively with colleagues and placing the students’ interests and experiences at the heart of the MILTON experience are also essential components of the job. We expect our teachers to provide developmentally appropriate and scaffolded opportunities to challenge students academically, physically, and artistically and to establish authentic relationships with the children in and beyond the classroom. We also expect that teachers will engage with colleagues in a collegial, collaborative, and community-minded manner, striving towards a respectful environment that encourages and supports the best in adults and students.
