    The Blake School seeks to hire an imaginative, caring and talented educator to lead a pre-kindergarten classroom beginning in the 2023-24 school year. The ideal candidate will have a passion for working with pre-kindergarten students, experience implementing best practices in early childhood education, a lively intellect and a thoughtful approach to education. This is a benefits-eligible, 0.85 FTE position. 

    Blake’s pre-kindergarten is a Reggio-inspired program with an emphasis on reflective teaching, emergent curriculum and documentation of children’s learning. In August 2023, Blake will open an Early Learning Center (ELC), the first of its kind in the Twin Cities. Designed for learners in pre-kindergarten (ages 4 and older), kindergarten and first grade, the ELC will offer a child-centered program in a green facility designed to spark curiosity, joy and growth.

    Strong candidates will demonstrate a creative, joyful approach to learning and teaching and dedication to continual professional learning and growth. In addition, we seek candidates who bring: 

    • Deep respect for children and their potential
    • Collaborative working style
    • Flexibility, confidence and a sense of humor
    • Strong organizational skills; resourceful planning
    • Knowledge of children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical developmental stages
    • Effective classroom management skills
    • Reggio-inspired educational philosophy with expertise in process-oriented learning and teaching

    Blake is particularly interested in candidates who will enrich the diversity of identity, lived experience and thinking that makes our community strong and empowers students to engage productively with those who are different from them. 

    The search committee will begin reviewing resumes on Dec. 15 and welcomes applications after that date as well. Blake covers the travel and lodging costs for finalist candidates visiting from out of town.
