Salary: $65,000 a year
Job Type: Full Time
Teachers To Go is looking for an experienced nature-based elementary teacher to teach a small group of 2-10 students in-person Monday-Friday from 8:30am-3:30pm (or 9am-4pm) at a private farm school located in Peoa UT, 84061. This is a wonderful opportunity for the right elementary teacher: a full-time position teaching a nature-based curriculum on a farm to a small group of kids (just two students to start) that pays $65,000/year plus health insurance and paid time off (8 weeks in summer, major holidays and 1 week in spring and fall).
Looking for a nature-based, learner-led elementary teacher (Montessori experience preferred), who would enjoy and embrace the opportunity to teach full-time on a farm with organic produce and medicinal herbs. The right teacher will be able to act as the sole teacher and administrator of a small group of elementary students, and observe, guide, supervise and assess the children while they learn. Teacher should be able to develop and teach lesson plans using independent learning exercises, and nature-based, learner-led curricula.
The right teacher will be calm and even-tempered, flexible, peaceful, compassionate yet firm when necessary, organized and responsible, supportive, and harmonious with nature. Looking for a teacher who can help with emotional intelligence and teach life skills, and who is self-motivated (ie: a self-starter who is self-disciplined). Prior inclusion experience and/or knowledge of multi-sensory methods is a plus, but not required.
Teachers To Go has been offering classroom teachers private job opportunities with flexible scheduling and competitive pay since 2007.
Requirements: Minimum two years of nature-based or learner-led elementary classroom teaching experience is required. Montessori experience is preferred. Prior experience with outdoor education (wilderness, survival, farming, field trips) and hands-on techniques would be most closely aligned for this position. Must have your own reliable transportation and cellphone, and must be able to come to the location of the private school in Peoa, UT 84061 to teach Monday-Friday from 8:30am-3:30pm (or 9am-4pm). Must be willing to collaborate with the parents and have good communication skills. Must be willing to interview via live video chat and in person in Peoa, UT.
