Spring Garden Academy is currently hiring an Elementary Language Arts teacher for our North Philadelphia school. We are looking for qualified individuals who understand our vision and mission and are committed to a holistic view of education in a high-risk community. We place a high focus on meeting the needs of at-risk and trauma-impacted families and encourage a collaborative approach to teaching and support.
The candidate should have a strong commitment to differentiated instruction, spiritual development, child-focused learning, standards-based reporting, ongoing formative assessment, professional growth, an understanding of at-risk communities, and a school family model of education highly desired. Familiarity with Conscious Discipline and/or Keystone Stars are a plus. This teaching position is ideal for a grad student or someone entering teaching in a non-traditional way.
