OUR TEACHER/ SUBSTITUTE TEACHER PROFILE

Griffin Nursery School is looking for a kind, mature, sensitive preschool teacher/ substitute with natural appreciation for and rapport with young children, at least two years of preschool teaching experience, and the twelve basic ECE units or more.

We would like our new staff member to understand the developmental norms and changes of 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds and to enjoy the variety of their temperaments and learning styles. You will:

• skillfully use active listening with children in conflict,

• have keen, quiet, and relaxed supervision skills on the playground,

• provide the clear limits and the flexibility preschoolers need,

• be their comrade in exploration,

• have artistic and ecological inclinations,

• try every day to be communicative, noncompetitive, responsible, detailed, and good-humored. When you fail,

you’ll pick yourself up (with supportive people around to help) and try again.

• And you will want to grow in your job and stay awhile.

THE COMPENSATION

Pay begins at $23 an hour and is commensurate with experience and education. All holidays and vacations scheduled on our calendar are paid. We follow the Berkeley Unified School District’s holidays and vacation weeks; and during the summer we take a two-day Independence Day holiday and a one-week staff vacation in August. We offer one paid sick/personal leave day per month, which, if unused, is paid out on the last payroll of the school year.

OUR SCHOOL

Since 1955 Griffin Nursery School has been a play-based, indoor-outdoor preschool in the Elmwood District of Berkeley. Its founder, Elinor Griffin, wrote Island of Childhood (1982), a brilliant study of preschool education based on anecdotes from the school. It was used for many years as a textbook at Mills College in Oakland, California.

Griffin is strongly social-emotional in emphasis, and we think this format makes our graduates truly kindergarten-ready when they leave us.

They have spent two years thoroughly undergoing the stages of early childhood socialization: Attaching to another adult outside home and family; making a first friend; sharing their friend with another child; cultivating multiple friendships of their own; working and playing in alternating pairs, foursomes, and fivesomes; and becoming interested in their roles as community members.

Their sociodramatic play has enabled them to cut and paste their thoughts and emotions with other children’s in the rich code of language; and through this multifaceted activity they have developed executive functions like drawing conclusions, predicting, and controlling impulses in order to adhere to the rules of the game.

Modest amounts of teacher-directed group times have provided them with time and place to take turns talking and listening; make community rituals and solve community problems; learn through rhythm, music, and movement; author stories and produce story plays; and hear and discuss books, broadening their knowledge.

Numeracy and literacy have been built into their daily occupations. For instance, when a child, approaching children at play on four bouncy balls on the playground, looks at the sign that says ‘4’ and counts the accompanying picture of four faces, she is practicing one-to-one correspondence in the act of determining whether there is room for her. If there isn’t space at the moment, she learns to deal with disappointment, create a visualization that she will have a turn, and write her name on a nearby waiting list.

Most importantly, we help our children become good citizens---that is, confident and thoughtful members of a community.
