1st Grade Teacher

Faculty / Full-Time

Epstein Hillel School, Marblehead, MA

Early Elementary Teacher at Epstein Hillel School

Welcome to Epstein Hillel School, a vibrant and progressive Pre-K-8 Jewish community day school. We provide a challenging interdisciplinary curriculum that fosters critical thinking, curiosity, creativity, and a love of learning in our students. We are a tight knit and vibrant community that prioritizes creativity, flexibility, and rich academic experiences to help students meet their potential while strengthening their identity and connection to the Jewish community. Our students not only excel academically, but they also think independently, work collaboratively, and become engaged leaders with a deep sense of Jewish pride. If you are looking for a school where teachers are passionate about teaching and learning and are committed to every child, where the “head of school” is the “head learner”, and where “going to work” feels like “coming home”, then you are looking for EHS. 

EHS is not just a job to us – it is a family. Our warm, joyful, and supportive school culture extends from faculty and staff to students and families. Everyone here has a real passion and calling to work with children. If that is you too, we encourage you to apply.

We are seeking dynamic and flexible individuals who love teaching young children. The ideal candidate has outstanding teaching ability, sensitivity to the social and emotional needs of young children, strong organizational skills, and is driven to explore ways to reach all learners through differentiated instruction in a child-centered classroom. References should speak to the candidate’s ability to develop positive relationships with students, parents, and colleagues. We prioritize strong collaborative and communication skills, a positive attitude and desire to grow professionally, and the ability to inspire curiosity and creativity in young students.
