The successful candidate will be passionate about the benefits of an inclusive learning environment for all students. He/she will have a MA in Special Education or a related field of study. The candidate will feel comfortable teaching and developing curriculum for both Judaic and General studies for a multi-age K-1 learning environment for all children regardless of learning needs.

  • Co­-teach with colleagues at the K-1 grade level so as to create meaningful integration between the Judaic and General Studies curriculum.
  • Admit their own shortcomings and actively pursue their own professional growth as a constructivist educator.
  • Take risks in an environment where the success and failure of all initiatives will be publicly shared so as to advance the field of Jewish Education in North America.

The Inclusion Teacher will work with the Principal and with the school’s consultants to begin training in constructivist pedagogy prior to the 2016-2017 school year. Compensation will be competitive and commensurate with experience.
