This dynamic and exciting course is taught in our flexible “thinkering” lab, often in partnership with the PK-2 maker/thinkering teacher. As a specialist teacher for grades 3-5, this teacher works closely with our PK-2 science teacher and our PK-2 maker/thinkering teacher to take discreet skills taught in those classes in the lower grades and deeply integrate them in grades 3-5.

As a member of the science team, the “thinkering” team and the 3-5 grade level teams, the ideal candidate will have demonstrated experience collaborating with colleagues, designing inquiry-based curriculum and integrating content areas. The ideal candidate will demonstrate the ability to collaborate with colleagues and an ability to lead as well as contribute to new ideas and projects. As a teaching community, The Carey School teachers value collaboration and regular communication to both create integrated projects as well as monitor and support students, the ideal candidate will have an aptitude for this close communication and will be able to quickly contribute to our faculty endeavors. A true fondness for challenging and engaging students, as well as previous experience with the Next Generation Science Standards and the principles of making, the design process and elementary engineering skills are a must.

At Carey, we work to create classroom communities that support learners in becoming joyful, engaged, thoughtful, metacognitive learners that can make their thinking visible. Candidates must have a strong understanding of children’s developmental level and practice utilizing differentiated instruction strategies to meet the needs of all learners. The Carey School is committed to being an inclusive environment that supports the social-emotional growth of all constituents and seeks candidates who value this endeavor.
