The Nature Preschool at Good Shepherd Episcopal School is hiring an assistant teacher for the 2024-2025 school year. Our preschool operates outdoors September through May, rain or shine. The assistant will work with the lead teacher to guide 12 preschool children, ages 3-5, in a wildlife-rich urban park, on school grounds, and occasionally in the classroom. This is a part-time position, 22-24 hours a week, Monday through Friday.

Summary

The Nature Preschool at GSES is looking for an assistant teacher for the '24-'25 school year. This position runs from September through May, with a few training days in August before classes begin. Hours are from 8:45 to 2:15 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and 8:45 to 12:15 on Tuesday and Thursday. While the preschool is part of a larger Episcopal school, the preschool program is NOT faith-based. Our focus within the nature preschool is to facilitate nature connection, model pro-environmental behaviors and stewardship, and support whole-child growth with a strong emphasis on social-emotional learning. 

The ideal candidate must have experience in early childhood education, a patient and calm demeanor, be comfortable being outside in all weather and physically able to hike and pull a wagon full of materials, and be curious and excited to learn outside along with the children. 

To apply, please submit your resume to preschool co-director Mallory Lape at mlape@gses.org.
