Part-Time Preschool-Grade Two Spanish Teacher

Sayre School is currently accepting applications for a part-time dedicated educator who loves Lower School students to teach Spanish in our World Language program to 3 year olds through 2nd graders. Sayre’s World Language program empowers students to explore, comprehend and appreciate cultures and languages as curious and empathetic world citizens.

The candidate should, at a minimum, possess a degree in Spanish, Elementary Education or a related field, an interest in collaborating with a team of teachers, and experience working with 3 through 8 year olds. An active curiosity about kids and their learning styles, passion for language teaching, flexibility and a sense of humor are key. This is a wonderful independent school and a great place to work.

The position includes teaching students in Pk-3, Pk-4, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade.

Students in our classes are engaged in active learning. They develop cultural competency and spoken language for interpersonal, interpretive and presentational communication. The thoughtful use of authentic materials, the regular use of the target language, and vibrant and purposeful engagement with existing and emerging technologies guide students toward building robust second language and general literacy skills, making them better citizens of an ever-changing world.
