  • Dedication to learning and developing the craft of teaching
  • Very resourceful and adaptive, eager to embrace constant change, growth and learning
  • Bachelor’s degree; graduate degree in early childhood education or related field preferred

  • Frequent feedback and top-notch, job-embedded professional learning 
  • The chance to impact education by demonstrating what's possible
