“It’s wonderful to work in a school where parents take the time to affirm what you do, respect you, and thank you.”

Teaching at Park is uniquely gratifying. That’s because Park’s educators don’t merely teach—they inspire and guide students throughout their Park journey. They serve as mentors and confidants, making a formative impression that students are grateful for well after they’ve graduated.
Exceptional colIeagues make Park particularly rewarding for members of our faculty. Our teachers are experienced, committed, caring, and skilled; and they especially enjoy working with elementary and middle school children. They make up a collegial and collaborative group, working together to create applied learning projects, connect different lessons for context and meaning, and find new ways to make Park outstanding.
Beyond working with inspiring coworkers, teachers appreciate many other aspects of being on Park’s faculty. Enthusiastic students and supportive parents make the work uniquely fulfilling. And teachers enjoy the autonomy and latitude to come up with new ideas and try out new pilots—often with the help of a Parents’ Association grant. Because ongoing professional development is a priority, teachers have many opportunities to gain additional education and training. Their schedules include time reserved for planning and collaboration with colleagues, and thanks to apprentices, assistants, and small classes (a student-to-faculty ratio of 7:1), teachers are better able to accomplish their teaching goals.
If you’re a teacher who’d like to work in this dynamic, supportive, and collaborative community helping students on their journey from PreK through Grade 8, we hope you’ll learn more about becoming part of Park.

“In my professional life, the first most important day was when I decided to teach, and the second most important day was when I was able to say ‘yes’ and come to Park.”
