Milton Gottesman Jewish Day school is looking for a 5th Grade General Studies teacher for our Elementary Division. Teaching responsibilities include Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Social Studies. Milton is a team based environment where teachers have a lot of input on crafting their curriculum.
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.
Requirements: Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and at least 1-5 years teaching experience. Master’s in Education preferable. Experience with readers and writers workshop and Responsive Classroom preferred.
