We are looking for a unique individual that possesses experience and passion in the area of educational technology specifically for our target age group. This means that you must be knowledgeable about the very latest tools that support technological exploration for the students.

We offer health, dental and vision plans, short and long term disability, life insurance, a retirement plan that includes a matching contribution, eligibility for tuition remission for your dependents, and unique professional development opportunities.

Are you ready for your next adventure in New York City? 

Pine Street is a forward-thinking school learning environment that embraces all aspects of technology and advocates for children ages 5+ to learn coding, robotics, engineering, and to become increasingly familiar with tools and concepts related to virtual reality, artificial intelligence and the ways in which technological innovations can support enhanced learning and problem-solving.

We will look to you to lead and teach our teachers, our students and our families in the use and application of technology for learning at school and beyond. This is a position for someone who is an expert in age-appropriate technology and understands how children at the early elementary level learn best.

We will ask you to support our students and teachers as they collaborate daily in the classroom, and we will ask you to participate in weekly curriculum planning with our elementary school teaching team. You will play a critical role as a spokesperson for our forward-thinking approach to technology during open houses and tours where we invite prospective families to consider our program.

We are proud to be an International Baccalaureate program, which means that learning is dynamic and led by the interests of our students. Work is project-based and rich in authenticity and real-world application. Students build a path of inquiry under the mentorship of their teachers and through an intensely collaborative process that is rigorous and more sophisticated than in a typical school setting. This pedagogical approach lends itself naturally to the use of technology for learning, for sharing and for problem-solving

Green Ivy Schools was founded by Dr. Jennifer Jones in New York City in 2012 to serve as a foundational network of schools representing best practices in education worldwide. The first two schools in the Green Ivy family are Pine Street School and Battery Park Montessori. These are “sister schools” and serve as two campuses in the Green Ivy network. Both schools offer internationally respected models of education (International Baccalaureate and Montessori), exceptional teachers, empassioned leaders, multilingual instruction and forward-thinking approaches. And both embody the warmth and sense of community that lets you know you are in a Green Ivy School.

 

What gives our schools the quality you feel the moment you enter are the “pillars” of belief that support them. There are eight core beliefs on which everything centers at our schools

 

As Part Of Our Team

You will have a meaningful career challenge; an opportunity to work on a project that prioritizes children’s social-emotional development; and a significant role in an organization focused on optimizing the future of the world’s next generation, at home and abroad

 

Green Ivy Schools is proud to be a home for professionals with exceptional standards and a deep passion for engaged learning. Our performance expectations for professionals stem directly from our philosophical pillars and are defined by the belief that great teaching can make the world a better place.

 

We only hire and retain teachers who see themselves as committed professionals and constantly develop skills in planning, classroom preparation, student facilitation and observation/assessment.  A Green Ivy Schools teacher is one who seeks collaboration and works tirelessly to improve communication with all school stakeholders. The professionalism of our teachers can be seen in their mindfulness as well as in the courtesy, positivity and solution orientation that they bring to every interaction.  Our teachers embody our mission and work to develop our schools into global models of best practice while bringing creative and forward-thinking ideas to the table, including those which encourage the integration of emerging technologies into teaching, learning and assessment. 

 

Our staff members are pioneers by nature and embrace spontaneous opportunities and dynamic growth as a part of the day-to-day school experience. They contribute to this evolving process by applying constant critical thinking and reflection and by bringing new ways of thinking and new connections into the organization, sometimes from non-traditional places.

 

A Green Ivy Schools employee never tires of growth and is always eager to expand awareness and ability.  It is this type of visionary teaching that defines our schools and is often recognized by our parents as our key differentiator.
