Substitute Teachers

Holy Child School at Rosemont (formerly Rosemont School of the Holy Child) is a Catholic, co-educational, independent school (Early Childhood-8th grade) located near the campuses of Villanova University and Rosemont College in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. We strive to Nurture Excellence in a Joyful Catholic Community. We seek applicants to help us enact that Vision Statement as an assistant in our Young Falcons (early three year old) program.

This is an ideal opportunity for a recent college graduate who is beginning her/his career in Early Childhood education, or for someone who has much experience teaching young children, but does not want the responsibilities of a lead teacher.

The Assistant Teacher will work closely with a veteran teacher, to help supervise and teach a classroom of 10-12 “young three year old” children. This Falcons program is half day, but the Assistant will also be responsible for the extended day program in the afternoon (approximately 12-3).

We seek candidates who:

  • Understand and appreciate our philosophy as a Holy Child school
  • Love children and understand their developmental needs
  • Are hardworking, responsible, and eager to learn
  • Have at least some informal experience (babysitting, Sunday School, camp counselor) with this age group

The ideal candidate will have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood education, or a related field. (we may also consider those with an Associate’s degree.) The ability to coach middle school field hockey, basketball or swimming after school is a plus.

This is close to a full time position, with the possibility of full benefits, depending on the final schedule.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter and résumé to Tom Lengel, Head of School, Holy Child School at Rosemont (tlengel@holychildrosemont.org) and Rita Smith, Director of the Early Childhood division (rsmith@holychildrosemont.org)

We will begin reviewing resumes immediately, and hope to have this search completed by late June.
