Employment with Turning Sun
Turning Sun has found that many of the best educators come from different backgrounds and levels of experience. For this reason, degrees, certifications, and experience are a plus, but not required to apply.
- Solid character which shares TSS’ values.
- Evidence of a good work ethic, self-motivation, and passion.
- A natural ability to connect with children.
TSS verifies these qualities by exploring each candidates references, active history, social media, and through live classroom observation.
Once hired, all Turning Sun staff progress though TSS’ Educator Development Program which features several levels and a broad spectrum of specialties, including the Reggio Emilia curriculum, classroom management, project and place based learning, positive and anti-bias language, etc. Participants observe and learn from multiple educators and specialists inside and outside of Turning Sun, which provides them with several experienced and approachable mentors for the future. In addition, new ideas are constantly being added to our evolving program, from both new and tenured educators. TSS also sponsors several off site activities each semester for staff to bond and have fun with each other away from school.
Turning Sun offers opportunities to work as substitute or permanent educators for half or full day, as well as 2, 3 or 5 days per week. TSS also promotes from within, so educators are frequently promoted to Lead, Coordinator, and Director levels, and may be able to work as specialists (e.g. Environmental Education).
Turning Sun is also exploring opportunities to open new TSS locations in 2017 which would be independently owned and operated.
