Bilingual Instructional Coach - BES
Basalt Elementary School (BES) seeks a Bilingual/biliterate Instructional Coach for the 2020-21 school year and beyond. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in teaching literacy in both English and Spanish, and will be a strong communicator with exceptional organizational and teaching skills. Basalt Elementary School is looking for collaborative and results-oriented team members that are focused on creating and 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.
