Assistant Teacher (Pre-K)
TPS Assistant Teachers are aspiring educators looking to develop new skills and build an enriching career in early childhood education. Assistant Teachers provide consistent support and connection to a classroom of students throughout the day and with guidance from a Lead Teacher, create and deliver a joyful learning environment. You will also get the opportunity to build relationships with all students in a grade level, and observe other teaching styles, as you might be asked to support in different classrooms within the grade level throughout the week. Additionally, Assistant Teachers play an active role partnering with families, TPS staff, and health providers in delivering on our system of coordinated care for children. On a daily basis, Assistant Teachers move seamlessly across the many different demands of their day -- from preparing classroom materials, to setting up for nap, to leading morning circle, to lesson planning, to analyzing student performance data, to discussing socio-emotional outcomes with parents and Parent Coaches, to following up with the Medical Director about a student health need. Beyond the scope of daily instruction and integration, TPS Assistant Teachers also play an active role in the continued development and evaluation of The Primary School model.
