The Schoolhouse Learning Center, Inc.
Location: Chittenden County,

The Schoolhouse Learning Center in South Burlington, Vermont has an opening for a teacher in our 4th-5th grade multi-age classroom. We seek a teacher who values mindfulness, enjoys teaching spirited, independent children, is committed to social and environmental justice, and welcomes diversity. You should be willing to examine your own biases, improve your teaching practices, and integrate anti-bias teaching and learning into your classroom. This is an unusual and exciting opportunity to join a team of creative, skilled educators in a progressive academic environment.

The ideal candidate understands child development and is passionate about progressive education. You should have experience with or a willingness to learn progressive approaches to learning and teaching, and embrace our play- and nature-based philosophy.

Schoolhouse is a state of Vermont approved independent school and a licensed childcare center, serving children from preschool through 8th grade. We’re located on 28 acres of protected wetlands, with access to forests, and we partner with a nearby small-scale family farm. We have a long history of offering a quality education which promotes curiosity and independence across a wide range of students and their families. Rather than asking students for answers, we guide them in exploring their observations and thinking. Rather than administering tests, we provide ample problem-solving opportunities, such as displays and presentations developed from students’ interest-led research and explorations. Learning at Schoolhouse is relevant, hands-on, and project-based, and we spend a lot of time outside the classroom.
The anticipated opening for this position is August 2023, with the possibility of paid opportunities to observe and mentor during the Spring of 2023.
