Joining CPE1's Staff
CPE1 is hiring for 2019-2020. Please send a resume to CPE1's principal, Gabriel Feldberg: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working at CPE1
To “educate children to become thoughtful citizens of a democratic society,” you have to be thoughtful and democratic. To facilitate an education that “expects responsibility” in learning and social behavior, you have to expect responsibility in yourself. Everyone in the community holds each other to those high expectations.
Working at CPE1 is demanding… and rewarding. Staff put in long hours. Most teachers eat lunch while they work with children. They make themselves available to connect with families. Adults often clean up around the school because children deserve inviting spaces to learn, and adults go outside in the cold because children deserve fresh air and exercise. Everyone discusses big decisions and everyone gives extra to make the school run. That’s hard work, and the work pays off.
Working at CPE1 involves six big commitments:
Commitment to Children
Working mindfully to achieve individual capacity
Commitment to Childhood
Contributing to a community in which childhood development and happiness are inalienable rights
Commitment to Families
Developing deeply respectful partnerships with families to support children
Commitment to Colleagues
Valuing time and work with staff members of every title and role
Commitment to Practice
Engaging actively in activities to strengthen pedagogical growth
Commitment to School
Acting in accordance with core CPE1 beliefs
CPE1's hiring committee meets with strong candidates for positions in our school. Before meeting with the hiring committee, it's important to spend time visiting. Before any formal interview, we ask all candidates to spend a day in classrooms and around CPE1, observing the school and how we work together.
