Instructional Staff, 2017-18

HoLa is growing... Come grow with us!

For the upcoming 2017/18 academic year, we expect to hire one or two certified elementary bilingual (Spanish) teachers for our elementary program. As our middle school program is growing, we also expect to hire two or three certified middle school or secondary subject-area teachers (one or more - Math, Science, SS, Language Arts). HoLa is interested in hearing from strong, committed, and certified teachers who are bilingual, and who feel an alignment with our philosophy and goals, and who can teach in Spanish.

Strong candidates will be inspired educators  committed to ensuring that every child succeeds; inclusive educators who embrace multilingualism; nurturing instructors committed to teaching and reaching all children; critical thinkers who inspire children to think deeply; dynamic team players who understand that working with others benefits their students, their school, and their own practice. 

We review and consider applications on a rolling basis.
