Teaching Opportunities at the Slate School, founded by Yale graduate

About the Slate School

Yale graduate, Jennifer Staple Clark, is the founder of The Slate School located in North Haven (about 15 minutes from Yale). Slate School is one of the only elementary schools in the United States to focus on child-centered, curiosity-based learning. Slate School is working to change the landscape of education throughout the country by building a learning community.

About the Positions

Slate School is hiring, and we are currently accepting applications for Lower and Upper Elementary School Teacher Positions for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Slate School has a time-tested apprenticeship model for educators. Our program is unlike any other, and we’ve had great success introducing educators gradually to the uniqueness of child-led learning in the elementary years. Educators of all backgrounds — oftentimes experienced teachers from other settings — benefit from the immersive and unique experience of Slate School. We find that this gives even our seasoned educators who are new to Slate School greater confidence in allowing the child learner to lead. Explore this opportunity here, including details and application instructions.

At Slate School, we are colleagues, mentors, and friends who are collaborators and thinkers. United by our innovative mission, values, and approach, we challenge and support each other every day. As a deeply collaborative team, we work closely with each other and with our students. We are driven by our creativity, curiosity, and purpose.
