Sheridan is an independent, co-educational, K-8 school located in northwest Washington, DC, offering a progressive, mission-aligned, concept-based curriculum that includes Reading and Writing Workshop, Math in Focus and Responsive Classroom. Each grade has about 25 students in one homeroom with two teachers. Departmental classes are taught in smaller sections outside of the homeroom by content specialists.
Sheridan's mission is to create an inclusive, vibrant learning community. About 25% of the 225 students are from diverse backgrounds, and the school is fully committed to fostering its multicultural community. Sheridan values continued professional growth, offering fully-funded faculty development opportunities and a mentoring program for new faculty.
Candidates should have a related degree, classroom experience, and/or relevant experience with elementary or middle school-aged children. We are eager to consider applications from traditionally underrepresented groups. Interested candidates should send a resume along with a cover letter describing an understanding of and an interest in Sheridan's program to the Faculty Recruitment Coordinator.
