We value our teachers. Our staff receives extensive paid training in Pyramid Plus (our social/emotional curriculum), weekly coaching, and are supported as educators and continuous learners. We offer a competitive pay structure, paid time off, health insurance support, and a part-time schedule that provides holidays and summer breaks off. 

We value diversity of all types and work to create an inclusive environment for children and their families. We are a stronger organization when we have a variety of voices representing a broad range of lived experiences. We are an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified candidates will receive consideration for employment regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law. 


We are always lookings for volunteers. If you are interested in supporting our students and school through volunteering in the classroom, helping out at our events, or assisting with the maintenance of the school, please send us a message.

Substitute Teacher

Substitute teachers are lifesavers in the event we need unexpected coverage in the classroom. If you are interested in becoming a substitute teacher, please message us.
