Head of School, the International School of Charlottesville

Location: International School of Charlottesville
Charlottesville, Virginia 22902
USA

Start Date: July 1, 2018

The International School of Charlottesville (ISC) is an independent school located in Charlottesville, Virginia. It offers a holistic French and Spanish language immersion educational experience for young learners ages 2-6.  Children in both the French and Spanish tracks acquire language in all academic subjects from teachers who are native speakers, allowing them to develop both linguistic and cultural fluency while experiencing a rigorous, broad, and inquiry-based curriculum.
Founded in 1998 as the one-room La Petite Ecole, ISC added Spanish as a second language in 2003, and earned its first NAEYC accreditation in 2008. Having just earned its latest re-accreditation in 2016, ISC currently enrolls 130 students aged 2 through 6, and comprises 20 faculty and staff members.  The vitality, creativity, and expertise of the teaching faculty have been instrumental to the school’s identity and success, and the community is enriched by the diverse perspectives and customs they bring from French and Spanish speaking countries around the world, including: Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, France, Honduras, Mexico, Spain, and the United States.  ISC has a strong administrative team and with distributed leadership responsibilities.
Responding to especially high demand during the last three years, the ISC will add a second campus and 40 additional students for the 2017-2018 school year.  At both campuses, ISC leases space from churches in the Belmont neighborhood of Charlottesville; however, with a solid foundation of finances and enrollment, the school is collaborating with the nationally-recognized architectural firm VMDO to prepare for the purchase of land and the construction of new purpose-built facilities. The new Head of School is expected to bring this expansion to realization.  ISC’s Board of Trustees will be a helpful partner to the new Head in these initiatives. 
In addition, the HOS is expected to recruit, hire, and retain a top quality early childhood faculty. He or she will also be responsible for cultivating strong relationships with the community, taking a leadership role in the development of curriculum and program, and ensuring the fiscal health of ISC going forward, while leading the creation of a new campus.

Teachers at Reggio Inspired Jewish Preschool Needed for 2017-18 school year

Location: Ahava Early Learning Center

Start Date: August 16, 2017

Teachers at Ahava value each child and each child’s family members as individuals and as partners. By modeling responsibility, welcoming and caring, teachers foster the children’s growth and development. Our teachers have the educational qualifications, experience working with young children, dispositions, knowledge and professional commitment necessary to help craft a program where children and their families are respected in their individuality and as a part of the community. Teachers work together with their colleagues to develop, implement, and evaluate the classroom pedagogy, to provide a quality educational program that reflects the goals and values of our Reggio Emilia inspired school. They document children’s play and learning and attend to classroom management, including the flow of the day, group dynamics and guide children to develop the social skills necessary to be contributing members of the school community and to negotiate conflicts with other children when they arise. Our teachers are co-constructors, researchers, documenters and advocates for children. Ahava teachers value and promote children’s play, indoors and out, are curious about each child’s perspective, understand child development and guidance in a constructivist context and are attuned to the learning process for each child. While teachers nurture physical, spiritual, emotional, social, and intellectual growth and development of each child, their first responsibility, beyond the safety and well-being of the children, is to be with the children joyfully. They provide care, protection, consistency, and guidance to the children, in the framework of a developmentally appropriate emergent curriculum. Teachers model anti-bias practices and cultural sensitivity, ask for help, accept suggestions and offer guidance. Our teachers are lifelong learners who stay current in the field of Early Childhood Education and take time for regular reflection and self-evaluation.
