Long-term Substitute Music Teacher for PS-8th Grade
Westside School teachers and staff work collaboratively to inspire creativity, innovation, and to deepen our sense of community. Westside faculty are exceptionally qualified in our fields, committed to being lifelong learners, and are passionate about our work. Our academic structure places a high value on integrated curriculum and project-based learning, with intentional administrative support. At Westside School, we value different backgrounds and ideas. Individuals from all cultures and communities are encouraged to apply. Located in the Arbor Heights neighborhood of West Seattle, Westside serves 310 students in preschool through eighth grade.
The Long-term Substitute Music Teacher is a temporary position (March 8 – June 15, 2021) filling in for our regular teacher who will be out on paternity leave during this time. The successful applicant joins a three-person Arts team (visual & digital, theater, and music arts in Middle and Lower School). This role is responsible for implementing a dynamic age-appropriate curriculum for instruction in music for our Preschool-4th grade general classes and Middle School general music classes. The Music Teacher works collaboratively with classroom and other arts teachers and participates fully in the life of the school, attending meetings, school celebrations, and upholds the mission, vision, and values of Westside School.
Westside has a robust arts program, and is home to a beautiful theater and music space. In the middle school, the Music Teacher will teach one trimester of music appreciation and music history in 6th grade. In the Lower School, the teacher will build an intentional foundation of standards-based music classes emphasizing musicality, music literacy, listening and performance at each level, possibly including end of term showcases. Collaboration and partnership with the arts team is key to success.
Please note: Westside School has just moved from a hybrid model of learning where Lower School students were in school part of the week and learning remotely part of the week, to a fully remote learning environment. We are very hopeful that we will be back in a hybrid model by March 2021. Our music and arts classes will likely be remote in a hybrid model.
