Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School is an independent Jewish day school for the 21st century. From Early Childhood through Middle School, we inspire our students to love learning through innovative teaching, hands-on exploration and discovery. Plus the individualized attention your children will receive is unrivaled; we offer a 5:1 student-teacher ratio—the very lowest in the city. Rigorous general studies and comprehensive Jewish learning are always wrapped in the warmth and values of our unique Jewish community. Our mission is to engage students in a program of rigorous studies through a variety of classroom and real world learning opportunities, to educate students to be active and informed citizens in our pluralistic community, to inspire them to develop Jewish literacy, and to guide them as they embrace their chosen Jewish practice and beliefs. Mission Statement: TO TEACH THEM DILIGENTLY. The words of our mission statement come from the Torah. These words emphasize that teaching and learning are at the heart of every Jewish community and reflect our enduring commitment to education.
We have an opening for a warm, talented Math educator who will serve as a full-time middle school mathematics teacher and advisor. The ideal candidate will be an experienced math educator who loves working with students in grades 5-8, has strong interpersonal and communication skills (both written and oral), is a collaborative team player, and is comfortable integrating math with technology, science, and other subjects when possible. Additional experience in science and technology is very much welcomed! Candidates must be comfortable teaching in person math, but also able to shift to virtual teaching if ever necessary. The ability to inspire in students a passion for learning is essential, as is the ability to develop in them both an appreciation for and deep understanding of math skills and concepts. Additionally, the ideal candidate will be able to cultivate creative problem solving, critical thinking, and higher-order mathematical reasoning skills. An understanding of the mathematical practices identified in the Mathematical Standards and the ability to make those practices a reality are essential. Experience with Understanding by Design as a framework for planning is a plus.
