Do you like creatively working with kids? Is working in a team something you enjoy?
Our students learn to think critically, question each other, learn from mistakes, and discover individual passions for their future ahead. We look to our teachers to be confident and caring leaders in the classroom, to guide our students through our intentional and balanced curriculum and motivate them through high expectations in a collaborative and fun learning environment. Our purpose is to enhance student learning with creative and energetic educators who share their love of learning with students and colleagues.
A little about us
Our School is an independent private school founded on the belief that education is a significant influence in the life of a child. Our mission is to create a school community that inspires children to realize their full potential, while providing a safe and nurturing school environment.

Stratford offers an accelerated curriculum with an emphasis in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) that incorporates music, physical education, foreign language, and social skills development. Together, we provide the best possible learning environment for our students.
A little about you
You are a positive, motivated, and energetic person who enjoys working as part of a team. You bring creativity to all that you do. Listening and being patient is second nature to you and encouraging others is your strength.
A typical day
You are responsible for carrying out all the duties necessary for the day-to-day elementary extended day operations. Supervise students in indoor and outdoor play, crafts, and snacks. Also embedded in the time is an opportunity for our students to work on their homework under your guidance and supervision. Working in a highly energized setting while maintaining a safe and educational learning environment is a must.
Teachers who are inspired in their approach, who stretch the boundaries of learning, are typically the most successful. We encourage enthusiasm and support our instructors to demonstrate the thirst for knowledge to our students.
We are looking for teachers who stretch beyond textbook teaching and bring together instruction methods to ultimately help a student delve deeper into a subject.
