Kindergarten Classroom Teacher

Lamplighters Academy is seeking a dedicated, passionate and outside-the-box thinker to take on a leadership teaching position for its inaugural Kindergarten class in September 2023.

This position might be for you if:

  • You’ve always wanted to be part of building something from the ground up.
  • You see education as a blank slate of opportunities, and not as a list of routines to follow
  • You believe that strong academics needs to be combined with building good human beings in order to be a successful educator
  • Teaching for you is not a job, but a calling, though you appreciate work-life balance
  • You’re passionate about Jewish education and the future of the Jewish people

Our school aims to position itself as an innovative and unique educational environment and requires a classroom teacher that sees education for its potential, and not necessarily as how it has been done in the past.

In being a member of Lamplighters Academy’s first-ever teaching team, the successful candidate will be a part of a trailblazing group of educators, most notably in its approach to teaching and learning, family-centered relationships and educational priorities. Lamplighters Academy teachers will be focused on each individual child’s unique needs, interests and abilities so that each school day can be full of engagement, learning and passion.

Specifically, Lamplighters Academy Teachers are responsible for:

  • Planning integrated, cross-curricular lessons and units using Lamplighters Academy’s one-of-a-kind curriculum.
  • Facilitate personalized and research-backed instruction for children in JK and SK.
  • Liaise with parents to report on child progress and share successes.
  • Work closely with the school leadership team to provide feedback on the curriculum, the program and learn alongside one another to explore best practices.

Candidate Profile:

Teachers interested in this position should be passionate about innovation, thinking creatively about Jewish education and have a specific interest in developing each individual child beyond just their academic skills.

The successful candidate must also have:
  • Bachelor of Education (or equivalent)
  • Ontario College of Teachers certification
  • Primary/Junior qualification Experience working with children between the ages 4 and 6.

The successful candidate may also have the following assets:
  • Master of Education or equivalent
  • Experience teaching Kindergarten
  • AQs in Kindergarten and/or Special Education
  • Experience with curriculum development and/or teacher leadership
  • Knowledge of Jewish practices, history and traditions
  • Familiarity with Hebrew
