Kindergarten Teacher


The Park School is seeking a Kindergarten teacher for Fall 2023. The new faculty member will partner with a current teacher in working with a group of 15-20 children. 

The Kindergarten program is an integral part of Park’s Lower School, which includes 275 students and 40+ faculty members in Pre-Kindergarten to 5th Grade. Park welcomes and celebrates diversity in our student body and in our faculty, and is committed to providing an education for all of our children, Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12, that instills in them a respect, understanding, and appreciation for the many races, cultures, religions, family structures, and ethnicities, that make up our complex and diverse world.

Devoted to intellectual inquiry, a collaborative spirit of learning, and an appreciation for the diversity of human experience, The Park School of Baltimore is a community founded on positive expectations of our students and respect for individual differences. 

We cultivate children’s innate curiosity by nurturing their interests and engaging them as active participants in their own education. 

We support young people in becoming confident questioners and responsible citizens of the world.

The Park School is a non-sectarian, independent, coeducational day school of 845 students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. Founded in 1912 as one of the early progressive schools, The Park School continues to practice a distinct educational philosophy. The core values today, as in 1912, are a belief in children’s capacity to love learning, to grow academically and emotionally when inspired by highly qualified, caring teachers, and to develop self-discipline, confidence, and creative problem-solving skills through deep exploration and constant challenge. At every grade level, from Pre-Kindergarten through Upper School, Park actively encourages questioning and conversation as essential elements of the learning process. The school philosophy emphasizes a belief in positive expectations and expects that students, as they mature, will take increasing responsibility for their own learning. 

Our program includes one Pre-Kindergarten class and two Kindergarten classes. Each section is staffed by two teachers. Special area teachers provide instruction in art, music, physical education, library, science, and Spanish. Lower School Learning Resource Teachers and a Lower School Counselor work with teachers at all grade levels. The Kindergarten is located in a separate building, which includes a multi-purpose room and an adjacent playground.

The goal of education in Park’s Kindergarten is the healthy growth of children’s intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and moral powers. To this end, the program involves children in a rich array of learning experiences in an environment that respects children’s individual interests and varying rates of growth. Play — as a means for children to explore and construct an understanding of their world — is at the core of the program. The integrated curriculum includes substantial and varied activities in language and literacy, mathematics and science, the arts, and physical skills. Support of children’s social and emotional growth, with attention to the major developmental tasks of each age group, is also a priority.  Kindergarten faculty members establish close relationships with families, involving them as volunteers in the classroom and, more broadly, as partners in supporting children’s growth. 


Passion for teaching and commitment to the education of Lower School children are essential. Ability to work collaboratively within a grade level team and to communicate effectively with families are also key qualifications. In addition:

Park salaries and benefits are highly competitive with those in other leading independent schools. For new appointments, salaries reflect experience and training equated to Park’s scales.

In addition to normal retirement and health benefits, the school offers the following distinctive programs:
