Long-Term Substitute Spanish Teacher, Grades 7 & 8

Green Acres School is seeking a dedicated full-time 7th and 8th grade Spanish teacher to substitute for a teacher on temporary leave. The job should last at least until Thanksgiving and could stretch past that. The approach to teaching languages that we embrace, based on research in language development, is highly communicative. Teachers conduct classes in Spanish as much as possible, balancing work in the Pearson Realidades textbooks with authentic conversations, listening and speaking exercises, skits, written stories, and other engaging activities to get the kids both learning new skills, vocabulary, and concepts, and also honing their ability to genuinely use the language through receptive and generative practice. The teacher will also work towards preparing the students for the National Spanish Exam. Our 7th graders take level 1 of the exam and our 8th graders take level 2. Green Acres School enjoys a friendly and collaborative working environment, and engaged, motivated students. This teacher will also serve as a student advisor.

Requirements:
Green Acres seeks a Spanish teacher who has a background in curricular and pedagogical innovation, as well as some teaching experience relevant to this position. The successful candidate will have native or native-like fluency in the Spanish language, and will have the skills to provide differentiated instruction and to integrate technology into the curriculum.
