Special Education Teacher - Small Groups and One-on-One
Teach at a school where students' individual needs are the cornerstone of every program.
Yellow Wood Academy is the school for students who operate outside the box of traditional education. Our community of teachers and educators spend time with our students to develop a hand-crafted plan for each student and then we teach them either one-on-one or in tiny classes designed for peer learning. Our 100% special education inclusive environment integrates students of all areas of ability, learning challenges, and acceleration so they can learn at their own pace and in their own style while growing into a community of learners together.
Teachers must be prepared to teach on campus or online.
