The Blake School is looking for a bright and dedicated Lower School Teacher Librarian to provide full-time leadership and expertise in our library media program for the 2019-2020 school year. The ideal candidate will have experience empowering students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skilled researchers and ethical users of information when leveraging both print and digital resources. The teacher librarian collaborates with classroom teachers and specialists to design and implement the effective integration of information resources and digital learning skills into student instruction and to assess student learning. The successful candidate will have an extensive knowledge of diverse voices in children’s literature, a demonstrated ability to promote literacy among students, experience partnering with elementary school teachers, and the managerial acumen to administer library operations, collection management, programming and volunteer opportunities. Candidates must have a bachelor’s degree in a related field such as elementary education.
