We are looking for deeply compassionate and committed teachers who want to help create and support a new progressive school – WeGrow – in New York City.
Our Mission: To Unleash Every Child’s Superpowers
We are looking for incredibly warm and passionate teachers who have a profound respect of education, understanding that we have as much to learn from children as they have to learn from us. We respect the magic, sense of wonder, and curiosity that is innate in all children. We believe that an educational community that values kindness, global citizenship, collaboration, and creativity will unleash the gifts and superpowers of each child. WeGrow educators personalize curriculum for each child based on their needs, interests, and aptitudes. We work with the most skilled teachers in each subject area, always looking for educators and professionals who not only excel in teaching, but also in their humanity. With success defined as happiness and the ability to share in meaningful ways, we support each child as they create their own roadmap towards a profound and love-filled life.
We are looking for co-lead teachers for classes of 3 year olds, pre-K, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2, 3, and 4. There will be two co-lead teachers, for each class. Each class will have approximately 15 students, thus leading to a student-teacher ratio of around 7 to 1.
Competitive Salary and Benefits will be offered.
If you are interested in growing with us, please send a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WeGrow is committed to supporting growth in children’s minds, bodies, and souls through an integrated, individualized curriculum that challenges and elevates all aspects of the child. Our learning originates from each child’s passions and is hands-on and project-based, drawing from progressive educational pedagogies, such as Montessori, Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia. Our goal is to create conscious global citizens, who know who they are, understand their gifts, and approach life with wonder, joy, humility, and a profound desire to share. With a focus on studying life through spirituality, farming as a way to respect and understand the planet, and yoga, meditation, and conscious eating as tools to center our bodies, we delve deeply into cultivating the whole child. Language and STEAM are taught and emphasized as ways to further connect with the world. WeGrow supports the growth of our children’s entrepreneurial spirits through initiatives such as a school-run farmer’s market as well as a collaboration with WeWork. As we begin to identify our students’ passions, they will be paired with employees and members under whom they can apprentice.
