SUMMARY

Live Oak School, a K-8 independent school in the heart of urban San Francisco, believes that the best learning happens when students are actively engaged in the process—thinking deeply, exploring ideas, and trying on strategies for solving problems. The school’s approach to teaching and learning is deeply rooted in progressive tradition and informed by contemporary research. Live Oak anchors its instructional program around the students as individual learners, determined to prepare them for the opportunities that will define the lives of graduates in the twenty-first century.

As the school embraces a new strategic plan and launches several major initiatives, Live Oak has created a new role—director of instructional innovation—that will be integral to the continued growth and evolution of this nearly fifty-year-old institution. The director will have a chance to oversee and grow programs tied directly to curricular innovation, instructional design and educational technology—including the highly anticipated ChangeMaker Lab that comes online fully next fall. The director of instructional innovation will serve on the leadership team and report directly to the head of school.
