Located six miles from Washington, D.C., St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School, a JK-12 Episcopal School, educates the whole child by tending to the academic, social, physical, and spiritual needs of each of our students. Named as the #1 best workplace in Washington, D.C. by the Washington Post, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes is a positive and collegial community with a commitment to our mission to pursue goodness as well as knowledge and to honor the unique value of each of our members as a child of God in a caring community. SSSAS combines a rigorous academic program with outstanding opportunities in the arts, athletics and service learning for our students. SSSAS has a deep commitment to creating an inclusive community which values diversity and multiculturalism, and we seek candidates who have this same commitment. The diverse student body is 28% students of color, and 22% of our students receive financial aid to create a socioeconomically diverse community.
Our culture promotes lifelong learning, and our faculty have a wealth of opportunities available to them to continue expanding their knowledge of both their disciplines and the field of education. Summer study grants, a 6-week multicultural seminar for new faculty, support for graduate studies, and conferences and workshops are just a few of the ways in which we support and encourage our teachers to continue to grow and learn.
We are seeking a part-time (7:50 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. daily) assistant teacher for Kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year. Assistant teachers support lead teachers in implementing all aspects of the curriculum, including reading/writing workshop, phonics, and mathematics explorations. Assistant teachers teach whole group, small group, and individual students.
Candidates should be collaborative, flexible, patient, and nurturing with children. Candidates should possess a strong comfort level with integrating technology in the classroom and a passion for learning and growth. This is a wonderful opportunity to work closely with experienced teachers and to hone pedagogical skills in a supportive environment. Candidates must have a degree in Elementary Education or certification in that area.
