We are seeking a Preschool Teacher to join our amazing staff! This individual will be working closely between staff, parents and students. We are a-little like the breakfast club. The majority of us are over-qualified for what we do, and the others have a ton of experience with children and youth. We're all mid 20's early 30's. Each of us have our own unique style/niche we bring to education and our connection to students. We synergize our approaches and bring our passion into education and connection with these kiddos. We use the most contemporary evidence-based practices in early childhood for early learning and language acquisition. We also take a developmental approach to how we're working with youth, and emphasize sensory-motor stimulation through our academic curriculum- (Anything icky, ooey, gooey, solid, sticky, slimey, smelly, bright and shiny).
We each have a love for play. Together, we geek-out almost as much as the kids, and can giggle and laugh at each other when we're in that zone with the kids. We hang-out with each other after-work. We'll go bowling, grab some pitchers- (it's not a "work event," but we enjoy hanging-out with each other too- somewhere in-between our personal lives and our working lives.
We aim to bring-out our best-selves in the classroom, everyday, to enrich the lives of every child in our community.
I believe in a working hard, and playing harder. - and, in this industry, we're lucky enough that we get paid to do both simultaneously.
