Dual Language Elementary Teacher

Our School is seeking an Elementary Dual Language Teacher. We are currently looking for a Spanish teacher for the Spanish component of our dual language model grades K-5th. The classroom teacher will be responsible for providing instruction in English and Spanish is taught in the content areas.

The Dual Language Program integrates native English-speaking students with native Spanish-speaking students for academic instruction, presented in both languages. Social and academic learning occurs in an environment that values the language and culture of all students and sets high standards to ultimately achieve academic success in Spanish and English.

The language used for instruction is also broken down by a 70/30 ratio. 70% of classroom instruction is provided in English, and 30% of classroom instruction is provided in Spanish. Each teacher speaks only in the designated language and communicates using a range of engaging strategies to promote student understanding and language development. Children at this age are adept at acquiring language in meaningful contexts. All students are taught to read, write, listen, and speak two languages.

The dual-language model creates an additive bilingual environment for both groups of students because it allows them to maintain and develop their first language while simultaneously acquiring a second language.
