Congregation Beth Shalom Early Childhood Center – Pre-School Teacher
Imagine a work environment in which you are part of a team. An environment where you are encouraged to be yourself and use your individual skills. A place that values its teachers and works together to create a homelike environment for teachers and children alike. We go above and beyond to make this a positive place to work. Beyond the friendships teachers build with each other, frequent teacher treats like doughnuts and pizza during the workday, and supportive and empathetic leadership we also offer about 28 paid days off every year and an entire week of paid teacher in service training every fall. AND we also pay for teachers to attend conferences both locally and out of state to help them feel inspired and get fresh perspectives on the important work we do with young children. If that wasn’t enough we ALSO have the ability to have your schooling in Early Childhood Education (including certificates, Associate’s degrees and Bachelor’s degrees) COMPLETELY paid for.
We are a school that works hard to view children as competent problem solvers and to guide them through a play based curriculum designed specifically for each class. Our school includes five classrooms from babies up to pre-kindergarten. Feel free to read more about them: https://bethshalomseattle.org/ecc/about-the-ecc/
We are looking for some teachers to add to our family-like staff. The most important qualities we look for in our teachers are adaptability, dedication, and respect. Please let us know if this is you. We have a few part time positions to fill and we would like to add some subs to our sub list.
We look forward to hearing from you. Please e-mail your resume, references, and a description of why you would be a good fit for our school to firstname.lastname@example.org .
