Furthermore, the teacher is attuned to the specific learning needs and social and emotional development of each student. As the central figure in the network of adults supporting each child, the teacher maintains ongoing communications, formal and informal, with parents, specialists, and administrators. The teacher is also responsible for:

● Teaching an intentional social learning curriculum.

● Ensuring the safety of each student by supervising arrival, dismissal, recess, lunch, and transitions between classrooms.
● Creating differentiated learning experiences aligned with formative assessments.
● Contributing to interdisciplinary curriculum design and student support strategies with the grade level team and specialists
● Embracing the use of instructional technology

The successful candidate must love working with elementary aged students, possess a nurturing teaching style, and interact well with parents in a supportive manner.
