Job Description

(Full-time, 7:45 to 4pm, Monday through Friday)

Starting: Friday, August 9th, 2024

Are you passionate about helping young people learn and thrive? Are you interested in joining a collaborative team of educators who believe that the defining features of our daily work are serving the needs of our students, their families, our colleagues and the school community? Are you interested in working in a nationally accredited Orton-Gillingham program, committed to helping students overcome the challenges of print-based reading and written language difficulties. Summit School is seeking an enthusiastic and dedicated 6th-7th Language Arts & Social Studies Teacher to join our team. If you are an innovative instructor who desires to meet the unique learning needs of students with dyslexia and related language based learning differences., we invite you to apply for this exciting opportunity.

Quality of mind, passion for teaching, and a commitment to the education of dyslexic students are essential. Expert knowledge and an understanding of best practices in the field of remediation of language based learning differences are strongly desired. Preference will be given to candidates who have training in the Orton-Gillingham approach to multisensory, structured language education. In addition, the position requires the ability to work collaboratively within a grade level team and to communicate effectively with parents. Please refer to Summit’s Portrait of a Teacher which speaks broadly to the qualities of a Summit School educator. 


Summit’s Upper School

Our Upper School is committed to progressive principles of education. Respect for children and confidence in their natural capacity to learn—and to enjoy learning--are key. The program at all grade levels centers on experiential learning within an integrated curriculum. Our approach emphasizes a nurturing environment and challenging curriculum that includes open-ended inquiry and problem solving, collaborative projects, and exposure to a wide range of learning experiences.  The teacher role is a fully professional one: in addition to taking full responsibility for students’ learning in core subject areas and their emotional growth, classroom teachers individually and collectively are the creators of the curriculum.  The faculty is actively engaged in ongoing professional learning and curriculum development, both as grade level teams and in division-wide initiatives.
