Religious School Teacher

Congregation Beth El in Fairfield, CT is seeking two Religious School teachers, one for K-1st grade and one for 3rd grade, to join us for the 2021-22 school year beginning in September.

We are: A vibrant, dynamic, and modern educational setting. We take pride in our focus on creating a social-emotional environment where kehila, community, comes first. Our students are active learners who create, explore, and are guided as they discover the relevance of Judaism in their lives. Experiential learning is a large part of our curriculum, as are enrichment activities such as music, dance, Hebrew Through Movement, and games.

Beth El Religious School curriculum begins in Kindergarten with an emphasis on parsha values, chaggim, stories, and songs. Children learn Alef-Bet letters and sounds in lower grades, and progress in grades 3-7 to more complex reading and comprehension of tefillah and blessings. We utilize the Behrman House Shalom Uvrachah textbook-workbook series (primer-Level 3). Each child learns Hebrew with their class as well as in a self-paced learning program with our Hebrew tutors.

A supportive Educational Director and Inclusion Specialist round out our team.

You are: An educator and a life-long learner. Experienced in teaching, preferably in a Jewish setting. A Hebrew reader. Speaking Hebrew is a plus but not required. Comfortable leading a group of students in pre-prepared curriculum and lessons. Able to communicate well with children and adults. Versed in current classroom-management styles and techniques. Continuously striving to improve teaching style and curriculum. Vaccinated against COVID.

We meet: Sundays from 9 AM -12 noon (grades K-6) AND Tuesdays 4 - 6 PM (grades 2-7). There are also several staff meetings and school events throughout the year where teachers are required to be present.

Salary Range: $40-65/hr., D.O.E.
Professional-development funding and time off available.
