The Wilson School, located in Clayton, seeks a stellar educator for our second grade teaching team. Wilson is a close-knit community with 170 students, ages three through sixth grade. Each grade level consists of one class taught by a team of two homeroom teachers. Our second grade teachers provide instruction in language arts, math, science and social studies. Outside the homeroom team, specialist instructors who teach art, music, library, technology, physical education, and French complement Wilson's exceptional academic program.
Wilson prepares students for success in an ever-changing world. In doing so, the instructional practices we use are both classic and innovative. Our commitment to professional development is unmistakable, as we spend more than twice the national average on growth-oriented activities for our faculty.
At Wilson, we assume an ongoing responsibility to act as part of a larger community. In our recruitment practices, we strive to create a community whose members reflect the diversity inherent in the greater St. Louis area, as well as in the world. When children graduate from the school, we hope they will carry with them a strong sense of their identity, a willingness to see the common threads that run through all our lives, and a high regard for the value and breadth of differences.
If your educational values and ambitions align with these beliefs, we encourage you to express your interest to teach at Wilson School. The ideal candidate will have: expertise and interest in instruction of the core subjects; excellent interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills; strong computer skills; and the ability to work collaboratively.
