The Packer Collegiate Institute seeks a passionate, experienced, and knowledgeable Science Teacher for Grades 2-4 to teach full-time in our Lower School division for the 2021-22 school year.
Packer’s commitment to diversity requires all faculty members active and thoughtful engagement in work involving identity, equity, and inclusion. We actively encourage applicants with broad and diverse backgrounds to apply.
Through extensive collaboration, Packer’s two Pre and Lower School science teachers connect student learning in the science lab to the world around them. Using a child-centered, inquiry-based and hands-on model, the teachers design relevant, stimulating, and challenging investigations that develop student skills and ability to problem solve, work collaboratively, and think critically. Packer’s Lower School science program emphasizes the development of scientific literacy and depth of understanding rather than the accumulation of scientific facts.
Ideal candidates must have a collaborative spirit, strong understanding of child development and scientific concepts, excellent communication skills, and a commitment to curriculum development and continued professional development.
Requirements include: a Master's degree in Early Childhood, Elementary, or Science Education; a minimum of three years of experience teaching young students; experience with designing science curriculum; and a passion for developing a love of science in young children.
