Learning to Love God and His World

431 W Austin Ave, Libertyville, Illinois 60048

Position Description

North Star Classical Christian School is seeking a Kindergarten teacher. North Star’s mission is to provide a classical Christian learning environment where:
God is acknowledged as both the source and purpose of all knowledge.
The purpose of education is seen not just as college or career training and preparation, but as soul and virtue formation.  Students are equipped to identify what is good, true, and beautiful, and encouraged to seek after goodness, truth, and beauty.
Children are broadly equipped with the tools of learning and intellectual virtues in order to observe and listen with discernment, think critically and logically, reason persuasively and precisely, and clearly articulate goodness and truth compassionately and humbly for the glory of God and the good of their neighbor. They will be prepared and encouraged to live purposefully with a genuine love of learning.

Parents are seen as having the primary responsibility for their children’s education and are expected to participate with and support the school in providing their children with a distinctly classical, collaborative, academically excellent education.
Therefore, classroom instruction should guide students in pursuit of those ends: worshipping God, forming virtue, loving the good, true and beautiful and respecting parents’ integral role in a student’s education.
The strongest candidates will have:
·   A bachelor’s degree or higher
·       Experience teaching with a Classical Christian philosophy
·       Desire to contribute in all aspects of school life and student culture with humility and passion.
·   Ability to interact professionally and cooperatively with parents and members of the school community.
·   A commitment to learning the school’s unique philosophy of education
·   Demonstrated Christian maturity and involvement in a local church.

Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to Academic Dean Kristy Adjei [email protected]
