Pine Street School
Start Date: August 14, 2019
We are a Spanish & Mandarin immersion school, and so native Spanish AND/OR Mandarin is required. Monolingual English positions are available as well. We invite teachers to promote cross-cultural activities and the dual language immersion program in the school and community. You will be expected to help as a native Spanish/Mandarin/English-speaker, modeling for students and helping them maximize their learning by utilizing the target language consistently in the classroom.
You will be responsible for working with your Co-Teacher in best practices with this age group, model those practices, and lead all parent communications. You will work closely with the Head of School to evaluate student progress and support your teaching team. Teaching teams work together to create curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and aligned with our IB pedagogy.
Teachers working with young children are often also working with parents who are new to parenting. Therefore, you must be someone with exceptional communication skills and a nurturing, cooperative approach. Our goal is to guide and support parents through the journey of the early years, helping them foster their child’s independence and confidence.
Through the use of technology, our students develop and apply strategies for critical and creative thinking, engage in inquiry, make connections, and apply new understandings and skills in different contexts. We ask every teacher to embrace technology and see it as any tool that empowers the learner to broaden the expression of an idea (often artistically), innovate, solve a problem, learn something new, verify what they think they know, communicate and collaborate with others, and so much more.
This position requires at least 3 years of experience working with children age 2-5 years of age. You must have completed a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in a related field. Master’s degree is highly desired and Montessori training or experience a plus.
We offer health, dental and vision plans, short and long term disability, life insurance, a retirement plan that includes a matching contribution, eligibility for tuition remission for your dependents, and unique professional development opportunities.

foundational network of schools representing best practices in education worldwide.
The first two schools in the Green Ivy family are Pine Street School and Battery Park Montessori. These are “sister schools” and serve as two campuses in the Green Ivy network.
Both schools offer internationally respected models of education (International Baccalaureate and Montessori), exceptional teachers, empassioned leaders, multilingual instruction and forward-thinking approaches. And both embody the warmth and sense of community that lets you know you are in a Green Ivy School.
What gives our schools the quality you feel the moment you enter are the “pillars” of belief that support them. There are eight core beliefs on which everything centers at our schools

Green Ivy Schools is proud to be a home for professionals with exceptional standards and a deep passion for engaged learning. Our performance expectations for professionals stem directly from our philosophical pillars and are defined by the belief that great teaching can make the world a better place.
We only hire and retain teachers who see themselves as committed professionals and constantly develop skills in planning, classroom preparation, student facilitation and observation/assessment. A Green Ivy Schools teacher is one who seeks collaboration and works tirelessly to improve communication with all school stakeholders. The professionalism of our teachers can be seen in their mindfulness as well as in the courtesy, positivity and solution orientation that they bring to every interaction. Our teachers embody our mission and work to develop our schools into global models of best practice while bringing creative and forward-thinking ideas to the table, including those which encourage the integration of emerging technologies into teaching, learning and assessment.
Our staff members are pioneers by nature and embrace spontaneous opportunities and dynamic growth as a part of the day-to-day school experience. They contribute to this evolving process by applying constant critical thinking and reflection and by bringing new ways of thinking and new connections into the organization, sometimes from non-traditional places.
A Green Ivy Schools employee never tires of growth and is always eager to expand awareness and ability. It is this type of visionary teaching that defines our schools and is often recognized by our parents as our key differentiator.
