Basalt Elementary School is seeking a full-time Special Education Teacher, state-certified for work with Signifficant Needs (or who can obtain such certification) for the 2019-20 school year. State licensure in Special Education or the ability to obtain within the first Quarter is required. This is a full-time position with benefits. 

A person with an elementary background or training is preferred. Bilingualism is a huge plus. Basalt Elementary School is looking for collaborative and results-oriented teachers that are focused on improving student achievement while honoring and building relationships with them.  

Basalt Elementary School is located in the Roaring Fork Valley, between Glenwood Springs and Aspen. There are approximately 700 students in grades preschool through 4th, and we are one big family. We are a Dual Language/Bilingual school which offers rich choice for our families and provides support in learning the English language for our native Spanish speakers. We are proud of our school's achievement on state assessments, in 2013 having our highest achievement scores ever and in 2012 and 2011 receiving the Colorado Governor's Distinguished Improvement Award for student growth. We continually update our programs based on current research and the performance of our students to make sure we are best meeting the needs of all. Teachers are organized into teams and work collaboratively to plan and meet students' needs. Students have a core Literacy class and a homeroom class. They also have an enrichment class (Spanish, English, Reading or Math Learning Lab, Leadership, and Extended Learning) and specials classes (P.E., Music, Library, Computer, Art). Teams of teachers create relevant, hands-on experiences which require critical thinking to create new products for synthesis of learning.
