OUR School Staff

OUR School selects staff members on the basis of interest in and knowledge of how children grow and learn as well as comprehensive state mandates for preschool teacher qualifications.  They are continuously engaged in a staff development program that enhances their skills  and abilities.  Staff is required to receive 15 hours of inservice and ongoing training in the area of child development each year, and all teachers are required to be Infant/Child CPR and First Aid certified to ensure safety if emergency care is needed.  Staff members are also required to have on file a health exam and proof of a negative TB test, as well as fingerprints and CBI background check.  Each teacher on staff has a short biography posted in the entryway of the school, so that you can learn more about their experiences and interests.

If you are interested in joining our team, please send your cover letter and resume to: ourschool@sopris.net.
