Roots and Fruits Preschool seeks 6-8 substitute teachers with immediate availability to serve in a teacher’s capacity in the remainder of this school year, through the 2015 summer, and the 2015-16 school year in our South Portland location. This is a per diem, paid position.
The purpose of the substitute teacher position is to provide classroom support and instruction when a staff teacher is absent. The responsibilities of a substitute teacher are to provide supervision at all times, and to deliver the educational philosophy and mission of the Roots & Fruits preschool.
Our preschool has a unique emphasis on teaching children to embrace diversity, encouraging them to learn about and honor their own roots (or heritage) and fruits (or gifts), as well as those of others. We build strong connections among diverse families.
Our peace-based curriculum helps children to develop communication and problem solving skills, as well as compassion and understanding towards themselves and others.
