Ready to start your journey?
Applicants for the Resident Teacher Program are a diverse group of open-minded, confident, passionate individuals at pivotal moments in their professional lives. They care deeply about children, are excited about learning, have a tendency to be reflective and imaginative, and are serious about becoming teachers.

All applicants must be college graduates with significant coursework in the liberal arts and sciences; a teaching credential and/or education coursework is preferred. Demonstrated interest in and experience working with children is desirable, particularly in a school setting.

The Resident Teacher Program places Residents with a grade-level teaching team in junior-kindergarten through fourth grade classrooms and with a departmental teaching team in grades five through eight (math, history, world languages, science, English, art).

The salary is competitive with similar positions in Bay Area Independent Schools. This is a 1-2 year, full time program. All Residents receive full medical, dental, and vision coverage; a generous holiday schedule; and access to the latest state-of-the-art education technology.
