Virginia Beach Friends School seeks experienced, full-time early childhood educators for both Lead Teacher and Assistant roles for ages 2.5 through 6 to begin in July 2019.
The ideal candidates must have a genuine calling to engage with the early school-aged child and a desire to teach within the Quaker pedagogy. Teachers at VBFS are integral to modeling the Quaker Testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. The preschool program is largely emergent, responding to the needs and interests of the children in the classroom, yet grounded in progressive Quaker education.
The successful candidates will work collaboratively with other early childhood teachers, the learning resources team, and with other specialists to engage with and meet the needs of our youngest students. We seek experienced educators who are flexible in their approach and seek to willingly collaborate with colleagues to create a dynamic early childhood program. VBFS is looking for educators who are comfortable teaching in a mixed-age classroom who can foster independence while allowing each child to excel at their own pace.
