St. Gabriel’s Catholic School is seeking a PK-2nd Grade Spanish Teacher for the 2022-2023 academic year. This teacher will work collaboratively with the 2nd-4th Grade Teacher and our MS Spanish Teachers to plan, organize, develop, and assess a comprehensive and vertically aligned Spanish curriculum. The ideal candidate has experience with, and is knowledgeable about, the cognitive and social-emotional development of children in these age groups and possesses a firm understanding of Spanish language and culture, curriculum and instruction as well as a willingness to develop expertise in project based learning, STEAM instruction, technology-rich, and differentiated instruction. Additionally, this candidate has a strong understanding of classroom systems and procedures as well as how to effectively manage student behavior to ensure all students are fully engaged and learning. They establish and communicate clear objectives for all learning activities and implement meaningful learning opportunities that contribute to a climate where students are actively engaged. SGCS is a co-educational Catholic school serving students from PreK 3-through 8 th grade in Austin, Texas. The Lower School is comprised of Pre-Kindergarten – 4 th grade, and the Middle School houses grades 5-8. SGCS provides a challenging and enriched curriculum that allows graduates to achieve success in the high schools of their choice. Our teachers must possess excellent oral and written skills with both colleagues and the community. SGCS is a 1:1 iPad school, thus teachers are expected to demonstrate meaningful skill with technology in order to create authentic learning experiences for their students. Our faculty listens to student and parent concerns in a responsive and constructive manner that supports our school mission and vision.
St. Gabriel’s is accredited through the Independent School Association of the Southwest (ISAS) and the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department (TCCED)
St. Gabriel’s Catholic School stands apart as a profoundly unique school and community. On our website, you will learn more about the ways St. Gabriel’s customizes the educational experience to match the skills and personality of each student, how we ask every constituency in our community to stretch themselves to their limit and then to go a little further, and how Christ lies at the center of all we do. In the happy faces of our students, you will see the results of high expectations and the joy that safety, affection, and a love of learning can bring.
Less obvious are the crucial relationships that make St. Gabriel’s possible. The rich partnership between faculty and parents not only produces better academic outcomes, but also models for our students the benefits of patience, generosity, and a shared commitment to excellence. We know learning is not a static transferral of ideas, but a dynamic process in which the teacher and student are collaborators and fellow travelers. Equally important is the special way our stu...dents care for one another. They are student leaders and have pride in their school and in each other. Every day I am surprised and inspired by these wonderful children. They are amazing!
I invite you to come see for yourself. Come walk our halls and spend time on our campus. Our buildings and grounds manifest our mission: welcoming, inclusive, and vibrant. You will see our students learning about themselves and the world around them through a potent mixture of technology, expertise, and creativity. Our campus is constantly humming with activity; you are always welcome!
A St. Gabriel’s Catholic School graduate is an accomplished scholar, a confident leader, and a compassionate friend. Yet there is more. Our graduates are grounded in faith and open to the call of God in their lives. They will make this world a better place.
On behalf of the faculty, staff, families, and students, welcome to St. Gabriel’s Catholic School!
