WORKING at the LP

Michael-McCord-e1329848392974-150x150Dear Fellow Educator,
Thank you for your interest in The Learning Project.

The Board of Trustees of our school has always had a strong commitment to the people who work here, both faculty and administrators. This commitment is reflected in the salary and benefits that are highly competitive within independent schools and in the school’s commitment to providing working conditions that support excellence in performance and in professional growth.

As a result, our school does not have a high rate of turnover, but when positions open up, we are eager to receive resumes from qualified candidates. We prefer that candidates for Head Teacher positions have several years of classroom teaching experience at the level for which they are applying and their Masters degree in education. Candidates for the Intern position should have a Bachelors degree and, preferably, some experience working with elementary-aged children.

Faculty and Staff openings for the following school year will be posted as they occur. We usually know of openings by January or February. Please take careful note of both the application for employment and the instructions for applying. Typically, interviews for next year’s faculty openings begin in February and continue through the spring and sometimes into the summer. The Learning Project is particularly eager to review employee applications from candidates of diverse backgrounds.

I am pleased that you are interested in elementary education and our school in particular. If not here, I hope you find a position that makes good use of your talents and interests and pleases you as well. Teaching at the elementary level is a wonderful way to spend a lifetime.

Sincerely yours,
Michael McCord
Head of School
