Graland Country Day School is seeking a flex teacher to work closely with students in grades Preschool-8. The candidate should have experience working with children and be someone who understands school environments and the unique needs of lower school and middle school students. The ideal candidate thrives on being flexible and filling in wherever help is needed. Flex teachers are the ultimate team players who work collaboratively with both students and faculty and will work on campus Monday-Friday while the school is in an all-kids on campus scenario. Candidates should be prepared to cover for a sick faculty member, take on a class that is doing remote learning, and say “yes” to a range of tasks that promote individual growth while also supporting the school. This may also include supervising faculty and staff children on Professional Development days.
Reports to: Division Head
Status: Full-time, school year; salaried with benefits
A great school never sits still. It keeps going, growing and evolving. Graland Country Day School is an independent school in Denver that serves students in preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school. Since the school’s founding in 1924, Graland has delivered an intellectually robust, character-based educational experience derived from current research about how children learn.
While so much in the world is changing, the school’s focus remains the same: Graland is faithful to the enduring aspects of its mission while seeking new ways to promote character and intellectual excellence. We inspire students to pursue excellence with passion and intent - academically, creatively and in their personal growth as engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders so that they learn to value individual differences and divergent thinking. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our program and keep it relevant for the next generation of students. Guided by our mission, values, Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity Philosophy Statement and strategic plan, we go to extraordinary lengths to give children the best education possible.
Our current enrollment totals 700, and we have just over 100 faculty members, 70 percent of whom have advanced degrees. Graland’s faculty and staff enjoy a collaborative, supportive environment where each member is encouraged to be a lifelong learner. Professional development, onsite childcare, a desirable location in the heart of Denver and other benefits make Graland a dynamic, inclusive and innovative workplace.
Achieve intellectual excellence,
build strong character,
enrich learning through the arts and athletics,
and prepare our students to be
engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders.
