Who we are 

The mission of ECDS is to prepare and inspire students to THRIVE and create a better world. THRIVE is also an acronym for our core values (Transformation, Heads/Hands/Hearts, Relationships, Inspiration, Vigor and Emotional Intelligence). ECDS is located in Evergreen, just off I-70, with easy access to the city and mountains.  

We are a school of 220 students, Toddler through 8th grade, situated on a beautiful, modern 11-acre campus. 

We are a learning community of dedicated educators where autonomy, collaboration and a growth mindset are valued.  

Our parent community is thoughtful, supportive and engaged in the mission of the school. Throughout the year, our parent organization actively supports the faculty so that they can do their best work for the students in the building. 

The ideal candidate 

  • Has a deep understanding of English language arts, literature, and effective teaching methods tailored to middle school students. 
  • Fosters a positive and engaging learning environment while promoting literacy, critical thinking, and effective communication skills. 
  • Has experience as a student advisor or coach. 
  • Is enthusiastic, positive, and has a passion for inspiring young minds.  

Opportunities to make a difference 

  • Create a joyful, rigorous, and student-centered classroom that inspires students to develop a life-long love of learning. 
  • Engage in opportunities for service learning, outdoor education, and student travel programs (both domestic and international).  
  • Be a part of a PK-8 House system (think Harry Potter), that provides a space for cross-age connections and building relationships outside of the classroom. 
  • Build on our commitment to teaching public speaking and presentation skills. 
  • Be a part of a team committed to teaching the whole child. 
  • Value diverse perspectives, identities and lived experiences. Our community is strongest when there are different points of view at the table and good communication is a priority. 

We hope you will join us in creating an environment where students THRIVE academically and develop a lifelong appreciation for the English language and literature.
