Long-Term Substitute Positions: 1st-2nd Co-Teacher and 3rd/4th Teacher

We seek experienced candidates for two long-term substitute positions: (a.) 3rd-4th grade teacher (approximately January 27-April 16, 2020) and (b.) 1st-2nd grade co-teacher, part time (January 2-June 5, 2020).

The ideal candidates will have certification or a degree in elementary education, a proven track-record of collaboration, and experience in teaching the appropriate grade levels. Experience with balanced literacy, differentiating instruction in a heterogeneous classroom, supporting the development of number sense, and inquiry-based social studies and science preferred.

Friends School of Portland is an independent preschool through 8th grade school arising from Quaker faith and practice and built upon long-held standards of exceptional Friends schools. Embracing the Quaker belief in the unique worth of each individual, we seek students from diverse ethnic, economic and family backgrounds. In small, multi-age classes, as well as in afterschool and summer programs, we nurture children’s unfolding development as curious, creative, and compassionate world citizens. We emphasize high standards for independent thinking and personal integrity. We offer cooperative learning in a close community where simplicity, service, stewardship, and peaceful resolution of conflict are practiced every day.
