Rohan Woods School is searching for an experienced, elementary Science specialist to serve in a full-time capacity for the 2023-2024 school year. By virtue of the school’s mission, Rohan Woods has one classroom per grade level. Rohan Woods is a Project Approach school, teaching children how to critically think, problem solve, and work collaboratively with peers.

The new hire will plan and teach our articulated science curriculum to students Junior Kindergarten – age 4 through Middle School (Sixth Grade). Instructionally, a variety of strategies are used to teach this curricular strand including, but not limited to, hands-on activities, online platforms, and whole and small group instruction. The science curriculum complements Project Approach instruction, further providing opportunities for exploration, critical thinking, and problem solving.

The Science Specialist’s management responsibilities include:

  • Overnight travel with students to further learning with real world, hands-on experiences
  • Supporting an indoor beehive
  • Maintaining an outdoor garden and pond
  • Instructing a Health curriculum for Fifth and Sixth Grade students

Parent communication is of the utmost importance at Rohan Woods. Building partnerships with parents sets the foundation for successful students. Core and specialty teachers communicate directly with parents to build a cohesive team that supports each student. The school year is divided into trimesters, with report cards and conferences taking place within that structure. 

Candidates who have a passion for science education, a willingness to explore, and a strong growth mindset will find this opportunity rewarding and exciting. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of two years experience working with children. 

This is a full-time salaried position with a comprehensive benefits package including medical insurance, generous Paid Days Off (PDO), life insurance, short and long term disability, and a 401K match. Daily lunch is also provided during the school year.
