Job Type: Full Time
Teachers To Go is looking for an experienced in-person state-certified special education elementary classroom teacher to teach an 8 year old autistic girl at her home in Eatonville, WA 98328, Monday - Friday from 9am-5pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for the right teacher: a full-time position (40 hours/week) that pays $80k/year ($75k base salary plus $5k health insurance stipend spread out over 12 months) with paid time off (all federal holidays, one month in summer, 2 weeks end of year, 1 week in spring and 1 week in fall).
Looking for a teacher who meets the aforementioned qualifications who will be responsible for implementing and overseeing a customized homeschool curriculum for an 8 year old girl who is autistic/non-verbal, and who will work with her full-time certified ABA therapist to help further her abilities. At least one other adult will be present on the property at all times to assist (usually two), so the stated work hours of 9am-5pm for the teacher will also include lots of time for administration. Previous experience working with autistic students is required. Any second language ability is a plus, but not required.
Teacher responsibilities will include assessing the child's academic skill levels, establishing long and short term goals for reading & writing and math, designing and developing a customized curriculum to achieve goals, partnering with and identifying related goals for behavior therapists, and partnering with the local school district to identify eventual supplemental opportunities for group integration.
The right teacher will have a warm personality and be patient and flexible (able to make a plan but reactive enough to make changes as needed), good with physical interaction, independent and self-managing yet communicative and a team player, with the ability to add extra-curricular experiences. (Prior experience incorporating musical and physical education activities is a plus, but not required.)
Teacher candidates must have Washington SPED elementary Teaching Certificate and prior experience working with autistic students. Teachers To Go has been offering classroom teachers private job opportunities with flexible scheduling and competitive pay since 2007.
Requirements: Washington state elementary SPED Teaching Certificate and minimum two years experience working with autistic students is required. Must be vaccinated and boosted and willing to wear a mask when ABA therapist is present until state medical requirements change, must have your own reliable transportation and cell phone and be able to consistently come to the home of the student to teach in person in Eatonville, WA 98328 Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm, must have good communication skills and be willing to collaborate with behavior therapists and parents, must be willing to interview in person in Eatonville WA and via live video chat.
