Description

Morningside Academy is a school that provides elementary and middle school age struggling learners the opportunity to catch up, build up, and get ahead. Extensive assessments and research-based methods with proven results are utilized in our unique program. Morningside students have not previously reached their potential; many have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, or ADD/ADHD. All have average to above average intelligence. Morningside is not a school for children with significant emotional problems, behavioral problems, or developmental delays.


Position Summary: Morningside Academy is seeking an elementary school teacher who will be responsible for 10-12 students in each class. Students are grouped by skill level, not by age or grade, so children will range in age from 7 – 11 years old.

The successful elementary school teacher applicant will join a dynamic group that has a "children first" values set.


We will teach you how to plan a lesson that makes the most of research-based teaching practices.
