Pine Cobble School Employment Opportunities

Kindergarten Teacher 

Pine Cobble School seeks an extraordinary kindergarten teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This job is for you if you:  

  • Connect powerfully with young children — you look children in the eye; embrace mistakes as the best learning opportunities; know that passion for learning is contagious; and aren’t afraid to belt out a tune or make up a silly dance if it helps get an idea across.

  • Understand that children’s greatest intellectual strides occur when you make room for spontaneous joy, creative thinking, and oodles of laughter.

  • Are a living, breathing role model for empathy, compassion, and respect.

  • Nurture children’s natural instincts. You encourage them to ask questions, solve problems, explore the world around them, wiggle, and play.

  • Know that children learn best when their parents and teachers work together. You maintain multiple open, ongoing lines of communication with families.

  • Are gifted at creating a supportive, wholesome classroom environment in which every student flourishes.

Pine Cobble School has set as a strategic priority amplifying historically marginalized voices in the classroom and ensuring that all intellectual inquiry both reflects and promotes broad perspectives and cultures; candidates who are committed to equity and justice are especially encouraged to apply.  If you are interested, please submit your cover letter, resume, statement of purpose and references to Christy St. John at hr@pinecobble.org, by August 11, 2017.


Third Grade Teacher

Pine Cobble School seeks an outstanding third grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This job is for you if you:

  • Are an exceptionally well-prepared elementary educator with an established and powerful track record. It’s already a given that you can deliver a rock-solid foundation across subject matters…but you also know a special secret: that the deepest learning is fueled by joy.

  • Believe in high standards…without standardization.

  • Know that children flourish when hard work is punctuated by spontaneous bursts of laughter, and when serious learning becomes seriously fun.

  • Routinely push yourself out of your comfort zone, because you know this makes it possible for students to do the same.

  • Believe that maybe —  just maybe — a giant peach really might be the vehicle for an around-the-world adventure. Or that a spider and a pig can become true and lasting friends.

  • Learned something new yesterday. And the day before that. And the day before that. (Because that’s what lifelong learners do).

  • Are passionate about inspiring not only good students, but also good human beings.

  • Have endless energy, an unbridled passion for teaching, and a terrific sense of humor.

Nutrition Coordinator/Sous Chef

Let’s face it: every school claims to have a nutritious school lunch program. At Pine Cobble School, we take our claims one step further: we’d put our lunches toe-to-toe with the healthiest school lunches in the country. But we want to go further, by integrating wholesome foods into the curriculum itself. We want you to help.  

Every lunch period,  Pine Cobble School students dine family-style in mixed age groups. We offer students made-from-scratch hot meals, with robust salad bar offerings, fruit, and milk. Now we want to bring nutrition and wellness into the curriculum, through classroom activities related to cooking, healthy eating, and an expansion to a garden-to-table program.

We’re looking for a Sous Chef who can also coordinate nutritional programming for students. This job is for you if you:

  • Are dynamic, mission-driven, efficient, and great at multitasking.

  • Can whip up delicious meals for up to 80 children/adults (and sometimes more) daily, using wholesome, whole, ingredients…all while keeping a sense of humor.

  • Possess cooking, planning, and budgeting skills.

  • Can design and teach age-appropriate food education in collaboration with some of the most dynamic teachers you’ll find anywhere.

  • Adore kids, connect well with them, and are excited to make a lifelong impact on their well-being by helping them value healthful foods.

  • Have entrepreneurial leanings, are capable of envisioning all that our food program can be…and are willing to put in the work to get us there.

  • Know that whole foods are about so much more than simply filling bellies; indeed, healthful meals are an extension of your vision for a better world.

We have a newly-renovated kitchen; that’s where you’ll prepare and make the meals, help serve them, and get the kitchen cleaned up and ready for the next day. You’ll also plan and prepare food for special events throughout the year, and be a positive, contributing member of the Pine Cobble School community. If you are interested, please submit your cover letter and resume to Christy Richardson at hr@pinecobble.org, by June 18, 2017.

 

Pine Cobble School is an independent day school, Pre-K through 9, in Williamstown, Massachusetts. We offer an outstanding education, and we actively foster creativity, curiosity, hard work, community, and laughter. We have a 20+ acre campus, weekly skiing/skating in winter, and a healthy lunch program that you’ll have to see to believe.
