Description:

A heart-filled, worldly family based in Atherton and Santa Cruz, CA is seeking a flexible, experienced, and adventurous private educator for their two school-aged children!

This trilingual family is passionate about learning and languages, and speaks English, Spanish, and German in their home. They are excited to continue expanding their 7 and 5-year-old children’s worldview and knowledge through homeschooling! Before the pandemic, they attended a German immersion school that utilized an international baccalaureate curriculum and are presently in 2nd grade and kindergarten. The family lives an active, outdoorsy lifestyle and love to bike, surf, ski, and travel whenever possible. They look forward to spending the summer in Europe and winter in Costa Rica, amongst other adventures! Their current private educator has had a family emergency and will sadly need to leave. She has done a great job setting up the materials and the classroom environment, ensuring they are ready to be transitioned into another exceptional educator’s hands on day one!

This position is flexible to be a temporary appointment until May 31st, or continue on into the next school year. This role is ideal for a candidate who is flexible and open-minded, enjoys adjusting to new environments, and has a love for the outdoors! While the family has been mostly exposed to IB and Montessori curricula, they are flexible in their education style and are very open to working with their future educator’s teaching style that works best for their children and their lifestyle. A candidate who is passionate about meeting children at their level and utilizing project-based learning and the world as their classroom will thrive in this position. While not required, strong fluency in Spanish is desired to provide an immersive environment if possible. The family is committed to the safest health practices as the pandemic unfolds, and above all, wish to protect their educator’s health and wellbeing. They desire to find a candidate who is like-minded in their safety precautions during their off-duty hours, and open to having regular communication around these procedures as the country begins to reopen.
