SoulShine Schools, an educational organization in Atlanta, GA that offers preschool education, has released a blog post that shows 4 easy steps to find preschool teacher jobs in Atlanta. While looking for preschool teacher jobs may seem tricky, the task is much easier if the people searching know what they are looking for. At SoulShine Schools, which is currently looking for teachers, they might just find the kind of working environment they are looking for and enhance their career in childhood education.
The first step is to examine one’s skills and qualifications and determine which employer is suitable. For instance, for those who have recently graduated with a degree in early childhood education and have no experience yet, it may be better to choose a private school where the salary will be higher than that in a public school. To look for the best fit, people may need to research the various schools that are of interest to them online. It would also be a great idea to look at their curriculum. Knowing the curriculum will give people an idea of whether they will be able to effectively teach the children in their care if they get accepted there.
The second step is to determine the position desired. Preschools offer many roles, such as preschool teachers, substitute teachers, assistant teachers, director-level jobs, and paraprofessionals.
The third step is to search for available positions and the kind of preschools desired. Preschool job seekers can do this online, using several popular websites. These include: Atlanta preschool jobs on Google, Indeed, Atlanta preschool jobs on Twitter, LinkedIn, or go directly to the SoulShine Schools website since they are currently hiring.
The fourth and final step is to choose a particular school. Some schools will require a cover letter and a resume for their application process. Others will simply ask applicants to fill out an online application. Many schools will also ask for the applicant’s teaching certificate and other qualifications. Also, preschool teachers in Atlanta will need a bachelor’s degree. Thus, it is essential to mention this in the resume. For those who require a TEFL or TESOL certification, it is advisable to have the proper documents before going to the school. And before going to the interview, it is a good idea to practice answering common interview questions.
Meanwhile, another blog post explains how SoulShine applies Reggio Emilia principles in Atlanta, GA. Reggio Emilia is a child-centered approach that considers the environment an educator, backs multi-teacher experiences, promotes the visualization of teachings, collaborates with participating families, offers in-school kitchens, and more. SoulShine Schools in Atlanta utilizes the Reggio Emilia approach in its unique learning centers. Their three schools in Atlanta apply the said approach to provide a school environment that allows the children to engage with their environment actively. The classroom environment offers an open floor plan with lots of room for exploration. And the children are encouraged to play and explore in this environment, allowing them to discover things for themselves and learn. The role of teachers is to serve as facilitators of this learning process, guiding children in trying to solve problems by asking questions rather than simply providing the answers
Founded in 2006, SoulShine Schools started as an after-school program to serve a small group of parents looking for a unique, ecologically aware, heart-forward approach to learning and development for their children. At present, they have evolved into a developed educational organization, which has three locations, providing infant, preschool, pre-kinder, and school-aged education and care. They are proud of the relationships developed with the children, parents, and the community.
Those who would like to learn more about the curriculum and other important information can check out the SoulShine Schools website or contact them on the telephone or through email. They are open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm from Monday to Friday.
