The Dome School

Dome School is hiring [Deadline Dec 7]

Thank you for your interest in our teacher positions!

The Dome School is seeking to fill a 3-day/week Elementary teacher for the remainder of the 2017-18 school year. Prior teaching experience and 2-4 year degree preferred. We hope for the position to begin January 2.

Our school is a strong parent cooperative and our program is proud to support community-based learning and outdoor education. Parents teach specialty subjects and trade skills for their parent hours. Several community members work all year long in the classroom! Communication and community involvement skills are highly important components to these positions.


An important element to our Elementary program is our thematic, emergent curriculum. We build our curriculum around different themes that stem from children’s interests. We may start the year with an ocean theme, and, due to children’s interests, a ship theme may emerge. Once we feel we have learned all we want to learn about the ocean and ships, we will introduce the next theme; maybe theater will be next, emerging into Shakespeare’s Globe Theater or architecture may be next, emerging into Fort building or a larger construction project.  We use themes to integrate all academic subjects in a meaningful, high interest way. Arts, crafts and other hands-on projects are always a large part of our thematic curriculum.

The position will require serving as a co-teacher focused on supporting Grades 1-2. Responsibilities include implementing lessons; designing and maintaining the classroom environment; and collaborating with other teachers, parents, and community volunteers.


For all positions, we do not have an application form. Please submit a cover letter and resume, including at least 2 references. Applications can be dropped off at the school office or mailed to Dome School Hiring Committee, PO Box 812, Cave Junction, OR 97523.  Deadline to apply is Thursday, December 7.
