Physical Education Teacher / Teacher Assistant Job at Paideia Classical Academy – Coconut Creek, FL
Entering our tenth year of operation, PCA is a school fully committed to the classical Orthodox tenets of child education and rearing. We are currently looking to expand our team with a full-time multi-stages (preschool to high school) physical education teacher, who would also undertake a teacher assistant position for 1st-5th grade.
Preferred applicants will be Christ-centered individuals with prior experience conducting physical education programs following a classical approach (calisthenics; integrating fitness with music and discipline and games with rules and virtue-building; various sports – including, but not limited to, soccer, flag football, basketball, dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, tennis soccer).
Additional Desirable Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Aside from the PE classes, the preferred candidate would be a classically-trained person, as for the completion of the full-time position he or she will be functioning as a teacher assistant, assisting the main teacher in multiple classroom subjects. Afterschool soccer and football is also part of the job responsibilities. While having knowledge of classical teaching methods is preferred, we will also welcome as applicants scholars and life-long lovers and pursuers of knowledge and wisdom with less familiarity of the classical education methods.
Candidates must be detail-oriented, have good organizational skills, be able to multitask, have very good academic competence in reading and math and strong classroom management skills, and work well under direct supervision. Compensation may get into the higher end of the specified range depending on qualification, experience, and potential afterschool football/soccer availability.
