Description

Beth El Preschool (BEPS), located in Bethesda, Maryland, is seeking a Lead Teacher and an Assistant Teacher to join our warm, welcoming early childhood team. BEPS is a play based preschool that provides a nurturing, supportive environment for young children. Our classrooms allow for hands-on exploration, experimentation and discovery. At BEPS we pride ourselves on creating meaningful connections, meeting each child where they are and infusing a love of Judaism into our preschool families' lives.

We are looking for engaging and caring teachers to join our faculty for the 2024-2025 school year. We are seeking a Lead 3s Teacher and an Assistant 2s Teacher. The positions start August 19, 2024 with the school year ending in early June 2025. Core work hours for both positions are 8:45am–1:15pm. The Lead Teacher position is Monday–Friday; the Assistant Teacher position is Monday/Wednesday/Friday with the possibility of working as a “Floater” on Tuesday/Thursday. We also offer additional hours to teach or assist with enrichment classes Monday–Thursday until 2:15pm.

Lead Teacher: The ideal candidate will have experience as a lead or co-lead teacher in an early childhood education setting and/or a degree in early childhood education or a related field and/or the 90-hour course in ECE. Experience teaching grades K-2 in an elementary school setting or as a graduate student in an ECE related field will also be considered. The ideal candidate will be confident working with young children; be knowledgeable about early childhood development and developmentally appropriate curriculum; feel comfortable communicating with parents; and have the ability to both lead a classroom and work as part of a team.

Assistant Teacher: The ideal candidate will have experience working with young children in a school, daycare or camp setting. Coursework in Education or Child Development – or a related field – is a plus. The ideal candidate will have a positive attitude, possess an ability to be flexible and will enjoy working collaboratively with colleagues.

BEPS is a parent-cooperative preschool. Our parents are involved in their children's preschool experience, volunteering regularly in the classrooms and serving on active parent committees. Parents and teachers partner to best serve our children's needs and work together to create a dynamic and welcoming early childhood education program.

Salary Information: The starting hourly rate for the Lead Teacher position is $33-$37, depending on experience. The starting hourly rate for the Assistant Teacher position is $21-$25, depending on experience. Both positions offer additional earning potential for enrichment classes taught outside the core work hours.

To apply: Please send your resume to Lauren Hirt, Preschool Director, at [email protected].
