Cornville Regional Charter School, Maine's first Elementary Charter School, is seeking to add energetic and positive teachers to its teaching staff. CRCS is located in Central Maine and will continue to expand and in 2017-2018 we will be reaching approximately 226 learners ages 4-14 (PreK-9). We have a PreK building (Skowhegan) and Middle School/High School building (Downtown Skowhegan) and we will be advertising for the PreK seperately from this post.
Teachers interested in joining our team at the Cornville Campus (ages 5-14) must be avid believers in customized learning, meaning everyone learns at different rates of time and in different ways as well as deserve a setting that is shaped according to their individual needs. The mission of the Cornville Regional Charter School is to create a safe, respectful, nurturing, and active learning community where every child is given the opportunity to thrive academically, to be accepted, to celebrate accomplishments, and to develop a lifetime love of learning. Our goal is to customize the educational experience and break down traditional barriers and structures that can prevent a truly student-centered environment.
We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the excellence of our academic community through sharing their research-based practices, teaching, and/or service. CRCS teachers must have a growth mindset, seek to work in collaborations, be flexible, utilize technology as an essential tool for learning, and desire continuous professional improvement. Teachers must also be willing to embrace the professional development opportunities offered and view them as the essential resources in maintaining a cohesive, vision-centered community. Every obstacle must be met with “how can we solve this problem?” and every solution must enhance and support our mission, vision, and principle of Cornville Regional Charter School.
We know it is essential for teachers to have competency/proficiency-based and research-based practices in which they teach, and we are seeking this in our candidates. Prior experience in a school would be preferred but we are open to having our campus be the first education experience for highly-skilled, dynamic teachers who believe in our mission and vision.
