Sheridan is seeking an experienced upper elementary/middle school Spanish & French teacher. Our goals include content-rich classes mostly conducted primarily in the target language that are joyful, developmentally appropriate and integrated with other subjects and school routines. More detailed program goals are available for interested candidates.
The successful candidate will have specific interest in working in these grades, strong instructional and classroom-management skills, strong English speaking and writing skills, experience in curriculum design and student assessment, and an interest in collaborating closely with colleagues and parents. Sheridan’s world language program emphasizes both language acquisition and cultural understanding, is aligned with ACTFL standards, and is based on the Organic World Language (OWL) instructional approach. Additional responsibilities include regular communication with families, participation in department and staff meetings, and lunch, recess and dismissal duties several times a week.
Please note: We are in the process of transitioning to teaching Spanish to all students but will continue to have French classes for two grades for the next two years. Ideally, we are looking for one full time teacher who can teach both languages but we are also interested in hearing from candidates who can only teach Spanish.
