Teaching Positions: Spanish Teacher

The successful candidate is committed to working on a highly collaborative team in a multi-age learning environment with teacher-created, integrated curriculum based on students' needs, abilities, and interesets.

He or she must be an excellent teacher who is resourceful, enthusiastic, organized and able to navigate the educational terrain with grace and flexibility.

Our teaching staff recognize the innate potential that lies within every child. We encourage students to approach learning with an open, inquisitive, and critical mind and to go beyond the "facts" toward understanding the "why" and "how". At Wingra, children are deeply known by a supportive circle of adults as well as multi-age peers. Our community is one where students are accepted as their true selves, comfortable to explore, and confident to challenge themselves to try new things; a community where curriculum is flexibly designed to meet the students' unique needs, interests, and abilities; a community where students feel ownership of their educational journey and where their innate motivation to learn is sparked to life and fanned into a strong flame.

Our Spanish teacher will work with children ages 5-14, 60% FTE (3 days/week) All students at Wingra School receive instruction in Spanish. The goal of our program is to for students to learn a foreign language, and to understand the value of this knowledge. Student achievement is developed in four areas: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We also seek to increase knowledge of the culture of the countries in which the language is spoken and to support the school's multicultural curriculum. Students learn through music, movement, children's literature, art, videos, theatre and games. All of these activities foster a strong working vocabulary, understanding, and pronunciation of Spanish.
