Capitol Hill Day School seeks a full-time interim second grade teacher. Teaching and learning at Capitol Hill Day School is rooted in a Progressive Education tradition. The School has an experiential approach to education, apparent through hands-on activities that stress in-depth inquiry, and an arts program that is integrated with studies. Emphasis is placed on cooperative learning activities, inquiry based lessons, and problem solving. This is a co-teaching position, and teachers are expected to collaborate with each other in planning and implementing curriculum. This is an interim position, opening at the end of August and running through November, resulting from a maternity leave vacancy.
The mission of Capitol Hill Day School is to deeply engage a diverse community of students in connecting the classroom to the larger world, supporting each child in developing the confidence, compassion, and intellectual capacity to live a life of purpose and value.
Capitol Hill Day School is an independent, coeducational school for students in prekindergarten t...hrough eighth grade. Together, its academic day program and auxiliary programs in the late afternoon and summer reflect the School's commitment to create a community of students from varying backgrounds in which individual differences are respected and valued.
