Temple Beth Shalom has an opening for a part time preschool teacher. We are looking for a loving, passionate teacher who loves children to join our team. Part time teaching hours 1-6pm or full time 10am-6pm. EEC teaching license preferred.

The Role of the Teacher
Temple Beth Shalom Children's Center teachers play a key role, setting the tone by valuing each child and family as individuals. By modeling responsibility, welcoming, and caring, teachers foster children's Jewish identity. TBSCC teachers have the educational qualifications, dispositions, knowledge, dedication to learning, and professional commitment necessary to promote children and their families as they learn and develop. Teachers work together with their teaching team to develop, implement, and evaluate the classroom pedagogy, to provide a quality educational program reflecting the goals and values of the school. Teachers monitor the development and learning of the children and partner with families in sharing this information. Teachers also supervise and provide guidance to substitutes and classroom volunteers.

The Dispositions and Knowledge of the Teacher
TBSCC teachers value and promote children's play, are curious about the child's perspective, understand child guidance in a developmental context and are alert to the learning process for each child. Teachers model anti-bias practices and cultural sensitivity, ask for help, accept suggestions, and offer guidance. Teachers maintain confidentiality and are diligent about health and safety. Teachers are lifelong learners and take time for regular reflection and self-examination.

Physical Requirements
Ability to actively participate in children's play and care including frequent reaching, running, and sitting on the floor and in small chairs. Hearing and speaking to exchange information in person and by phone; seeing to read and prepare documents, monitor children for safety, and perform assigned duties; sitting or standing for extended periods of time; dexterity of hands and fingers to operate tools and equipment; kneeling, stooping, bending at the waist, and reaching overhead, above the shoulders and horizontally, to retrieve and store supplies; occasionally lifting moderate weight objects including children.
