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.

We are seeking Hebrew & Judaic Studies Teachers for the 2024-2025 school year in our Early Elementary Division.

The ideal candidate will implement multiple approaches to the Hebrew language and must possess advanced, superior, or native speaking Hebrew skills. The ideal candidate will possess outstanding teaching skills, be familiar with best practice in teaching Hebrew studies including a proficiency approach, as well as have experience with a diverse population of learners and be able to instruct using differentiated instruction. The Hebrew teacher will work together with a team to develop an exciting, innovative, and creative curriculum. 


  • Minimum of 3 years of teaching
  • Education/Certification:
  • BA required
  • Master’s degree preferred but not required.

Special Knowledge/Skills:

  •  Familiarity and experience in teaching Hebrew with the proficiency approach is preferred.
  •  Knowledge of future-ready/21st century skills and success in focusing on them in the classroom 
  •  Familiarity with best practices for student engagement and classroom management 

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.
