Monticello Academy is excited to open a new campus in North Davis county (West Point) for the 2020-2021 school year. We are looking for dynamic K-6 para-educators who are ready to support a fantastic team of teachers.
We follow the Core Knowledge Sequence, which spells out rich content knowledge for every grade level. Students don't just learn bland "skills." They learn real history, science, and literature in every grade level, from Ancient Egypt in 1st grade to Medieval History in 4th grade. Every year students delve into exciting content knowledge that they just don't get in other schools.
In addition, we use Singapore Math, which focuses on hands-on learning, conceptual understanding, and mental math/math fluency (yes, our students know their math facts inside and out!). It is the most successful math curriculum in the world and it is as fun to teach as it is for students to learn.
We are a college-prep school, which means we challenge students; hold them to high, measurable standards; and accelerate learning wherever possible. We also offer rich specials courses that support our Core Knowledge program. Students get consistent, quality instruction in visual art, music, Chinese, and physical education. Our specials teachers collaborate regularly with classroom teachers to integrate with and support the core curriculum.
We are seeking enthusiastic candidates to join our program as a classroom aide.
Candidates must enjoy and respect young children, be reliable, work well with a team and have enthusiasm for learning.
Responsibilities include: interacting with children in a positive manner; maintaining a safe, nurturing environment; communicating with teaching team members; assisting and implementing lesson plan activities.
