Position Description

JOB: 3rd Grade Maternity Sub
DATE: January 2022-March 2022
FTE: 0.8 up to 1.0
Compensation: Determined by Level of Education and Years of Experience

We are looking for an individual to take a three-month maternity position as a 3rd grade teacher.  This full-time position is responsible for the classroom management and daily teaching of all core subjects.

Basic Tasks:
SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP – The teacher is expected to consistently exhibit love, joy, peace, and spiritual maturity before his students and the rest of the school. The teacher is expected to be a student and lover of the Bible, God’s only written Word. He is to use the school’s curriculum guide and the Bible, among other resources, in constructing his daily classes. Active, joyful participation in the life of the school is expected.

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT/ENVIRONMENT- The teacher is expected to maintain a neat, organized, clean, and stimulating classroom environment for his students. This implies that the students will take an active part in cleaning and maintaining the room’s appearance. The teacher should set up simple, manageable class routines to accomplish basic tasks, e.g. homework collection, daily cleaning schedules, materials storage and distribution, etc.

CLASSROOM DECORUM AND DISCIPLINE – The teacher should be very familiar with and able to apply the spirit, as well as the letter, of the school expectations. An orderly (not necessarily silent) working atmosphere is to be the norm. Students should be aware of the class and school expectations and be encouraged to exercise self-discipline. When administrative discipline is necessary, the teacher is expected to accompany the student to the office and give the headmaster an accurate accounting of the student’s offense. The teacher is expected to diffuse and deal with the vast majority of corrective discipline situations within his classroom.

LESSON PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION – The teacher should have a thorough knowledge of and interest in the subjects he is assigned to teach. All subjects should be taught utilizing the objectives, materials, and methods prescribed in the SCCS Curriculum Guide. The teacher is expected to encourage the students to see how all subjects are interrelated, as parts of God’s integrated universe, and expressions of His Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. Clear language and appropriate vocabulary is also expected.

STUDENT LEARNING – The teacher should seek to stimulate and maintain the students’ interest in the material. Recognition and reasonable accommodation for individual needs is also necessary. A variety of techniques (in addition to testing) should be used to measure the students’ progress (see the Lost Tools Chart).

PLANNING AND COMMUNICATIONS – The teacher’s weekly and quarterly plans should reflect creativity and a good use of class time. The Curriculum Guide should be used to establish plans. Emphasis should be placed on getting to know the families well, as well as letting them know what is happening in the class. The parents should feel welcome to visit and assist in the classroom, as appropriate.

PROFESSIONALISM – The teacher is to consistently and joyfully demonstrate pride in SCCS by his work, punctuality, speech, attitude, dress, and attention to duties.
