4th/5th Grade Classroom Teacher
Keystone Adventure School and Farm, located in northwest Edmond, is looking for a qualified and experienced teacher for our multi-age 4th/5th Grade classroom beginning August 8, 2022. Keystone is a small, accredited private elementary school whose focus is on whole-child learning and individualized instruction. Our school has a working 15-acre farm and animals with whom the kids interact daily. We also have a spring-fed creek, pond, and ample outdoor play and learning spaces.
We prioritize individualized instruction, where a teacher engages some children to work independently while the teacher works one-on-one throughout the day. Our classrooms, intentionally small and between 12-18 students, are full of busy, interactive learning.
Keystone knows that after the full Keystone experience of 3-y-o through 5th grade, our kids are ready for more. Keystone works to balance the social, emotional and academic needs of each student, and by 4th/5th grade, the balance leans towards preparing them to step into a middle school environment. Children are also ready to become the leaders of the school. Their teacher must be an experienced educator who is capable of guiding them through this transition.
A Keystone teacher must first love children, approach them with empathy, and treat them with respect. They must be good question-askers to help children guide themselves through the learning process. They must be a team player with the faculty as they work together throughout each day. They must be truthful, kind, and respected by their peers.
If you are looking for a school that respects students and faculty, then we would love to connect with you.
Qualified applicants with 5 or more years of experience may submit their cover letters and resumes for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org.
