Morgan Park Academy has an opening for a full-time Early Childhood / Elementary Teacher to join our Lower School for the 2021-2022 school year.
Founded in 1873, Morgan Park Academy is a co-educational, college preparatory, independent day school in Chicago dedicated to preparing students to pursue the highest levels of educational excellence with an emphasis on independent thinking and global leadership.
The main objective of the Kindergarten program is the development of the whole child (socially, intellectually, physically, creatively and emotionally). The enhancement of the child’s self-esteem and the growth of a healthy self-image are valuable assets that can be instilled in a child in Kindergarten. The program is tailored to the needs, developmental levels and interests of each individual student in order to provide a positive learning environment that fosters an enthusiastic attitude toward learning.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a four-year accredited institution. Two to five years of teaching experience is preferred, although not a requirement for application. A master’s degree, early childhood certification, or a teaching credential is desirable. We are seeking candidates who are passionate about their desire to teach, eager to embrace and forward the mission of the school, and able to contribute to a teaching partnership and to the direction of the school. Excellent oral and written communication skills are essential.
In addition to a broad range of teaching responsibilities, teachers are expected to serve on committees and attend school meetings.
In addition to a competitive salary, we offer health, dental, vision and retirement plan options
