3rd Grade Teacher (Posted January 17, 2023)

Germantown Elementary is looking to hire a forward thinking third grade teacher who is passionate about education and strives to make learning meaningful and fun for the students. We anticipate the incoming third grade class will have 29 students, thus we will have 2 sections of third grade for the 2023-24 school year. This position is for the second section of third grade.

Now is an exciting time to join our Bulldog family as we are growing. We started a new Transitional Kindergarten Program this year, and we are in the midst of preparing for a major construction project. In the months to come we will break ground for an addition that when completed will include 2 early childhood classrooms and a gym. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a front row seat for all the excitement to come.

If you desire to work in a district with a family atmosphere that embraces creativity and a team approach, this is the job for you. If this isn’t enough to peak your interest, our faculty/staff is given the freedom to dress casually every day of the school year. We work hard, have fun, and dress comfortably at GES.

Interested candidates are asked to send a cover letter, resume, and letters of recommendation to Robin Becker at rbecker@ges60.org or 401 Walnut Street, PO Box 400, Germantown, IL, 62245. Interviews will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
