Assistant Teacher Program

Saint Andrew's Episcopal School offers an Assistant Teacher Program for individuals interested in exploring a career in early childhood and/or elementary education. The position can be tailored to accommodate the specific professional goals and development of a range of educators - those who are embarking on their first career to those who are switching from a different industry to those experienced teachers seeking exposure in a new grade level. Assistant teachers are dedicated to a single grade level for a year and are guided by the two lead teachers at that grade level. They participate in all activities of the school including weekly grade level meetings, parent-teacher conferences, faculty committees, Open Houses, and professional development opportunities.

The assistant teachers are integral to dynamic, highly functional grade level teams. With the guidance and support of the lead teachers, the assistant teachers:
  • Help create and implement lessons integrating technology, hands-on materials, and creative assignments
  • Practice leading whole group, small group, and individual instruction
  • Assist with formative assessments to identify student learning needs

  • Support and facilitate student conflict resolution
  • Assist with a range of parent communications including conferences, report writing, website entries and newsletters
  • Attend all grade level field trips
  • Recruit prospective families during school tours and the Admission Open House
  • Assistant teachers will also be given a mentor to help them throughout the year.
Assistant teachers will have opportunities to reflect on this daily practical experience and receive ongoing feedback from the lead teachers. They can hone their skills and develop their personal teaching philosophies. If a lead teacher is absent, the assistant teacher assumes the lead teacher role.

Candidates for an assistant teacher opening must have a college degree and experience working with elementary age children. Like all new faculty, they will be fingerprinted and must have a clear background check. They must also pass a TB screening. Assistant teachers attend CPR training, New Faculty Orientation, and Faculty In-Service Week prior to the start of school. They are expected to work on all days when students attend classes, from 8 am to 4 pm, and on all Professional Days with a Non-Exempt employee status.

A complete application includes a cover letter, resume, names and contact information for 3 – 5 references, and a response to the following questions: a) Describe an experience that illustrates your participation in a team effort; b) Describe an experience that illustrates your response to constructive feedback from a colleague or supervisor.
