MAPCDS is a highly collaborative environment where passionate teachers guide children on a path of joyful learning and discovery through a progressive framework, largely inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Teachers here are thoughtful, curious, flexible, collaborative and self-motivated. Candidates must be comfortable building developmentally appropriate curriculum in response to children’s interests, documenting learning, and nurturing partnerships with parents and with each other. In order to stay current on theories on teaching and learning, modern brain research and best practices, our educators are expected to participate actively in professional development opportunities. Strong interpersonal, public speaking and writing skills are required.
Associate Teachers fully participate in the life of the classroom, sharing the daily classroom roles and responsibilities of the Lead Teacher. This includes tending to the social-emotional needs of children ages 2-5, developing curriculum, creating documentation and children's portfolios, and establishing positive relationships with parents.
We welcome the perspective of new teachers who seek to contribute to the overall quality of our school culture.
Candidates currently enrolled in a graduate school education program as well as those who hold a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in education are encouraged to apply.
MAPCDS seeks to advance the diversity of our community through both hiring and admissions and does not discriminate on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, gender, religion or sexual orientation.
To apply, send a resume and cover letter to email@example.com. Please include a professional writing sample or, if available, a sample of documentation you have created in your current position.
