Grade 5 Teacher – Parental Leave Coverage

Faculty / Temporary

The The Meadowbrook School of Weston, Weston, MA

The Meadowbrook School of Weston, a pre-kindergarten through 8th grade school located in Weston, MA, seven miles west of Boston, is seeking a fifth grade educator to cover a parental leave starting in the fall term (August through February) of the 2023-2024 school year. 

Meadowbrook is a mission-driven school and we invite candidates to familiarize themselves with our mission before applying for the position. We are committed to offering students a well-rounded, rigorous education and our program often challenges students beyond their grade level, particularly in reading and in math.

We seek an educator with a demonstrated background and/or interest in cultural competency, curriculum development, and technology integration. We prefer that teachers have experience and understanding of Reading and Writing Workshop, Singapore Math, and the teaching of social studies. Candidates should also have an understanding of the social emotional development of fifth graders. This is a co-teaching position with two other teachers on the team. Candidates should demonstrate strong communication and relationship building skills, flexibility, and collegiality in promoting a healthy and stimulating relationship.

Meadowbrook’s lower school faculty is a group of dynamic and motivated teachers who are passionate and intentional about teaching lower school students. Recognizing the importance of development that takes place during the elementary years, Meadowbrook’s faculty members are excited to engage fully in all aspects of educating young children; supporting students in their increasing confidence, teaching them how to become self-advocates, helping them to develop a furthered understanding of how they learn, and developing valuable skills related to leadership, responsibility, and citizenship. Meadowbrook encourages teacher leadership and seeks candidates who are committed to honing their craft and are lifelong learners.

At Meadowbrook, innovative, creative, and passionate people join together in an expansive learning environment with rigorous academics and innovative curricula to inspire, challenge, and empower students to achieve at the highest level, connect deeply with a diverse community, and courageously create change.

We strongly encourage applications from people of color, LGBTQ+ educators, or educators from communities that are historically underrepresented in independent schools. We are committed to an inclusive school experience for all those who come to work at Meadowbrook.
