Teachers

Our interesting and well educated teachers are our strongest assets at SSCS. They bring their hearts, souls, and knowledge to school each day to help create the magic environment where children explore, discover, and learn how to live as creative and capable individuals in a vibrant community.

The staff at Second Street Children’s School are uniquely qualified to work within a child-centered program. All teachers work in co-teaching teams. In the morning program, one or both of the team members have a BA degree in early childhood education, elementary education, or a closely related field, or AA or CDA certificates with extensive teaching experience. Support teachers and afternoon program staff have a minimum of a high school diploma and previous successful work with young children. The Atelierista (a specialist with extensive visual arts experience and education) works with the other teachers and children to develop long-term art-focused learning experiences in the atelier (studio-ramada). Each staff person is required to participate in a minimum of 18 hours of continuing education per year. Every effort is made to insure staff stability and retention.
