Spring Garden Academy is currently hiring lead teachers and assistants for our North Philadelphia and Spring Garden locations. We are looking for qualified individuals who are committed to a holistic view of education in a high-risk community. We place a high focus on meeting the needs of at-risk and trauma-impacted families and encourage a collaborative approach to teaching and support. 2-5 years experience required. BS or BA in early childhood or a related field strongly desired but we will consider candidates with significant coursework or experience in the field. Strong commitment to differentiated instruction, spiritual development, child-focused learning, standards-based reporting, ongoing formative assessment, professional growth, and understanding of at-risk communities, and a school family model of education highly desired. Familiarity with Conscious Discipline, NAYEC accreditation, ASCI accreditation, and/or Keystone Stars are a plus. This position is for March-June but may be renewed for our camp program or if Spring Garden Academy continues with Philadelphia’s PreK program this fall.
Interested candidates should review our websites, www.springgardenacademy.org and www.nextgenministries.us, to learn more about our mission and philosophy before applying on our website.
