March 14, 2018
Olympia Community School (OCS) is excited to announce a special opportunity to join a team of incredible teachers at a small independent school with a 40+ year commitment to progressive elementary education. Teachers seeking an opportunity to work within a school community valuing holistic, student-centered, collaborative education will thrive in this environment.
The teacher will have primary responsibility for teaching a class of approximately 10-14 students aged 8 to 11 in a combined 3rd through 5th grade classroom. The normal workday is 8:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday – Friday with a 30-minute lunch break. On Wednesday afternoons the three teachers meet for two hours (1 to 3 pm) to work on joint lesson planning. In order to carry out OCS’s progressive approach to elementary education described above, the teacher will work collaboratively with two other veteran OCS teachers (teaching grades K-2), and will actively communicate with parents.
