School Overview
Ventana School is a Reggio-Emilia inspired school where learning becomes a joint venture between children and teachers. Our teachers are passionate about supporting children’s exploration, inquiry, and creative and critical thinking.

Physical Education Teacher Position

Ventana is seeking a Physical Education teacher to work with students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Our P.E. program has a strong emphasis on social emotional learning, collaboration, inclusion, and participation.

In Ventana’s PE program students move through three developmental stages: body management and listening skills; fundamental motor skills; and technical and tactical game skills. In the PE class, students are given an appropriate level of challenge and comfort to ensure risk taking; a necessary element for skill growth in game play. This balance is achieved through lessons centered around non-traditional sports and modified traditional games. Physical education students at Ventana become confident in their own abilities and develop an appreciation for all players’ contributions.

We welcome applications from dynamic teachers with elementary teaching experience.

Hold, or are working towards, a CA Multiple subject teaching credential or Master’s degree in a related field.
Minimum of two years’ experience working with elementary age students
Documented success in weaving social-emotional learning into PE classes
Exceptional written and verbal communication skills

Desired Qualities:
Knowledgeable of the Reggio Emilia philosophy
Passionate about refining and growing their teaching practice
Capable of taking initiative, risk-taking and experimentation, resiliency and flexibility

Essential Job Functions:

Duties include, but are not limited to:
Planning engaging, developmentally appropriate PE lessons for students K-5.
Weaving social-emotional skills, such as risk-taking, communication, and self-regulation into PE lessons.
Supervising student unstructured time during morning and lunch recess periods.
Collaborating with colleagues.
Making learning visible to students by documenting their learning through videos and photos. Sharing this documentation by creating blog posts and bulletin board displays.
Writing individual student progress reports.
