Located fifteen minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Mill Valley, Mount Tamalpais School (MTS) is a k-8 co-educational independent day school serving 240 students. At MTS “Learning is revered, and education is joyful.” We lead with kindness, honor childhood, and practice active inclusion. In our rich program, we celebrate the journey and encourage all learners to ask, “What’s possible?” MTS students, well-prepared for their future while remaining young at heart, bring a multitude of diverse and unique backgrounds to our community. They are motivated learners who love engaging in learning.
MTS Professional Community members are passionate about both what they teach and who they teach. Our departmentalized program allows all teachers to share their passion while focusing their professional growth. Regardless of department, MTS educators are dedicated to the social-emotional development and wellbeing of our students. Likewise, all adults on campus share a continual commitment to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive school community.
MTS is committed to a diverse and inclusive community. We are seeking a person to add to, and enhance our work in diversity, equity and inclusion as well as cultural competency. A successful MTS educator is collaborative, flexible, creative, organized, passionate about their teaching subjects, is a lifelong learner, is a clear communicator, utilizes culturally responsive and identity safe teaching practices, and cares deeply about each individual student.
MTS recognizes that many highly-qualified candidates may not check every criteria listed and that many experiences and qualities that promote exceptional teaching are not included in this list. If you meet many of the requirements and bring authentic passion for teaching lower elementary students, you are encouraged to apply. MTS values opportunities to connect with candidates who bring their individual experiences and perspectives to our teaching team and community.
