Learning Studio Teacher
In 2020, Our Neighborhood expanded adding the Learning Studio, a P-2 classroom serving children preschool (age 3) through 2nd grade (age eight). Now, we are looking for more teachers to join in our growth. Learning Studio teachers engage with a mixed age group of children. With our older children we remain committed to learning through play in a healthy social emotional environment.
We are looking for energetic, open-minded teachers to foster curiosity, exploration, and respect with young children. One of Our Neighborhood’s values is authenticity. As such, we hope that our teachers will bring their full selves to work, with all their diverse perspectives to share. An Our Neighborhood team member should first love working with children. Teachers act from a belief that young children are competent individuals worthy of a loving engaging environment. Strong candidates have a disposition towards learning and reflection, collaboration skills, and the ability to be self directed.
As a teacher at Our Neighborhood, you will have an opportunity to learn from diverse teaching teams and contribute your gifts to a thriving school. We hope you will join us in positively impacting the lives of young children and families. Our Neighborhood provides many professional development opportunities for teachers to learn and grow; through which you could grow to be the teacher you want to be.
