Job Description:

GRIFFIN NURSERY SCHOOL IS LOOKING FOR TWO PROFESSIONAL PRESCHOOL TEACHERS



OUR TEACHER PROFILE

We are looking for two kind, mature, sensitive preschool teachers with natural appreciation for and rapport with young children, at least two years of preschool teaching experience each, and the twelve basic ECE units or more.

We would like our new staff members to understand the developmental norms and changes of 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds and to enjoy the variety of their temperaments and learning styles. Our new teachers will skillfully use active listening with children in conflict. You will have keen, quiet, and relaxed supervision skills on the playground. You will also provide the clear limits and the flexibility preschoolers need; and you will be their comrades in exploration. As two among six staff members you will try every day to be communicative, noncompetitive, responsible, detailed, and good-humored. When you fail, you'll pick yourselves up (with supportive people around to help) and try again. You will have artistic and ecological inclinations. And you will want to grow in your jobs and stay awhile.


OUR SCHOOL

Since 1955 Griffin Nursery School has been a play-based, indoor-outdoor preschool in the Elmwood District of Berkeley. We have a year-round program.

Griffin is strongly social-emotional in emphasis, and we think this format makes our graduates truly kindergarten-ready when they leave us. They have spent two years thoroughly undergoing the stages of early childhood socialization: Attaching to another adult outside home and family; making a first friend; sharing their friend with another child; opening up to their own multiplying friendships; working and playing in alternating pairs, foursomes, and fivesomes; and becoming interested in their roles as community members.

Their sociodramatic play has enabled them to cut and paste their thoughts and emotions with other children's in the rich code of language; and through this multifaceted activity they have developed executive functions like drawing conclusions, predicting, and controlling impulses in order to adhere to the rules of the game.

Modest amounts of teacher-directed group times have provided them with time and place to take turns talking and listening; make community rituals and solve community problems; learn through rhythm, music, and movement; author stories and produce story plays; and hear and discuss books, broadening their knowledge.

Numeracy and literacy have been built into their daily occupations. For instance, when a child, approaching the playground, looks at the sign that says '4' and counts the accompanying picture of four faces, she is practicing one-to-one correspondence in the act of determining whether there is room for her. If there isn't space at the moment, she learns to deal with disappointment, create a visualization that she will have a turn, and write her name on a nearby waiting list.

Most importantly, we help our children become good citizens---that is, confident and thoughtful members of a community.
