The position I have held for 21 years is available.

I am retiring from a PreK -8th grade Elementary school.

Currently I have a fixed schedule and teach each student in grade preK-6 once a week.

I visit and maintain 2 libraries: one newly renovated with state of the art technology for grades 3-8, and another classroom size school library for preK-2nd graders.

There is an anticipated renovation for the smaller library as the district is expecting a population increase over the coming years.

The PTA is fully supportive and the curriculum I wrote encompasses 3 main units: Research and Reference, Innovation, and Career Readiness.

If interested contact the superintendent, Dr. Jennifer Brower,


and/or the district principal, Mr. Colin Winch
