At ACE, we look for teachers who are creative, curious, and full of ideas.
ACE teachers value questions more than order; they are not afraid of a child who is smarter than they are. With humor and imagination, they work at being flexible, but they are almost always described as “intense.” They tend to work very hard and try to do their very best, but they don’t count their minutes in the classroom or live for the weekend— like our students, the opportunity to learn and do seems to go by all too quickly each day.
ACE teachers must also be excellent communicators, verbally, non-verbally, in writing and electronically. Your intense, gifted colleagues appreciate your tact as much as your intelligence, and involved parents expect prompt and articulate responses to their queries. Your ability to positively communicate and collaborate with your peers and parents is equally as important as your ability to communicate and collaborate well with your students.
