| St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School is located in Alexandria, Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C. The school educates the whole child by tending to the social, physical, and spiritual needs of each of our students. The atmosphere is positive and collegial, and all members of our community are encouraged and able to pursue professional development on campus and in the larger community. St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School has a deep commitment to multiculturalism and provides to the faculty and administration programs, seminars and discussion groups to enhance awareness and enrich their teaching and work in the school community. |
Due to the opening of an additional Junior Kindergarten class in September 2017, we are delighted to be searching for a dynamic, creative, and collaborative early childhood educator to work as a lead teacher with 4 and 5 year old children. This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with current JK teachers to build and expand on an exemplar child-centered program, meeting the needs of all students by providing rich, meaningful learning and social opportunities in a play-based environment.
The Junior Kindergarten program at St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School welcomes our very youngest students to our school community. The program is experiential, child-centered and inquiry-based. Students are invited to construct their knowledge through intentional invitations and explorations. Continuing our mission to ‘pursue goodness as well as knowledge’ we honor the unique value of each child as we seek to inspire a passion for learning and a curiosity for inquiry. We recognize the capacity of even the very earliest learners to be competent and capable critical thinkers and problem solvers, and we aim to foster a loving, supportive community of thinkers where diversity and individuality is celebrated, and collaboration and cooperation encouraged.
Minimum Experience: Experience working in Early Childhood Education is required. Experience working in Reggio Emilia inspired settings is desired.
Qualifications: Degree: BA
Certification Required: No
