I. Qualifications:

Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in Spanish Language/Teaching

II. General Teaching Responsibilities

Curriculum Directors (CDs) are responsible for creating and delivering effective subject area curriculum to students. CDs are teachers, and they are the experts in their respective fields. Their curriculum should be designed to meet all modalities of learning: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. The Mead School’s philosophy requires that faculty create a partnership with students and other teachers in the learning process. Teachers are responsible for working in tandem with Home Center Directors (HCDs), who serve as Advisors, to deliver the appropriate curriculum and learning experience for each student in their individual classrooms. The duties of teacher include creating lesson plans, preparing classroom activities, organizing teaching materials, evaluating student performance, maintaining classroom records, meeting with parents, teachers and other professionals, and participating in campus events. Mead School faculty is expected to participate in the community by joining committees, taking an active role in meetings, engaging in Center specific activities that further the program, and being supportive of the close-knit community that defines The Mead School. Faculty will be asked to participate in bus duty, community, department & weekly staff meetings, evening or weekend events, pre- and after- care coverage and Center trips as they pertain to the age group taught. Teachers are also expected to participate in Open Houses, Parent Orientation Evenings, State of the School presentations, Staff Development experiences, and Diversity/Multicultural events or workshops.

III. Specific Teaching Responsibilities

Spanish is an exposure based, experiential curriculum at Mead. The Spanish Curriculum Director is responsible for presenting age appropriate curriculum to students in kindergarten – eighth grades. Working in conjunction with the Home Center Director, the Spanish CD will present material in a varied and accessible style. As with any curriculum area, the CD is expected to bring current teaching pedagogy, as well as solid understanding of the curriculum to the teaching process.

The Spanish teacher works in direct partnership with the kindergarten through eighth grade students to create a curriculum that meets the needs and abilities of the students. Goals for this program will be vetted with the student, HCD, and family, via the goals conference with the HCD. The Spanish teacher also serves as a resource to the Early Learning Centers, to help ensure Spanish language exposure beginning with students in Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten.

It is expected that the Spanish teacher will participate in Language Arts Department and Home Center meetings and provide feedback to Home Center Directors about the progress of students in a timely way. In addition, the Spanish teacher will participate in Parent Conferences and will provide written reports for students and families twice yearly.
