Job Description

Description and Responsibilities

Roots and Wings provides our homeschooling communities with small group instructions and support by providing a holistic curriculum and a Roots and Wings trained teacher to nurture whole individuals and encourage critical thinking. The curriculum used incorporates Waldorf, Forest, Montessori, Reggio, and meditation.

The teachers are provided with the curriculum and the necessary resources so that little planning is required and more time is spent on being active and engaged with the children. For mid and upper elementary we use the Overall Expectations outlined by the Ontario curriculum to drive our instruction and extensions and also weave in meditation, yoga, and emotional regulation strategies.

Our education pods have a ratio of 1:6 to meet the government guidelines and the learning space is in a client’s home or in a Micro School setting. A Micro School is when more than one pod is under the same roof, to allow for collaboration between teachers and meet the demand of the community.

Requirements

We are currently seeking a Holistic Educator who hold a Bachelors of Education or training in an alternative model such as Waldorf, Forest or Montessori. The aligned candidates will have experience working within the Special Needs space, a love for teaching in nature, and an openness and comfortability with modeling meditation and yoga. Teachers must be able to commute to the learning spaces. It is important that teachers are knowledgeable in working with the Overall Learning Objectives from the Ontario curriculum and have the ability to scaffold and differentiate learning skills.

We will provide training for Yoga for Kids, and the holistic curriculum prior to starting. We also provide a Forest inspired teacher training.

We hope to connect and attract the right individual to meet the above requirements.
