    Spanish and Chinese Elementary Immersion Teachers
    Lakes International Language Academy - Full Time 

    Job Description: Teachers are responsible for carrying out the school’s mission and vision.  Teachers carry out all responsibilities associated with elementary language immersion teaching.  They conduct classroom instruction of all subjects in Spanish; develop curriculum materials using instructional strategies for elementary students; infuse internationally minded concepts into the curriculum on a continual basis; incorporate hands-on learning activities into daily instruction; communicate closely and encourage parental involvement regarding program goals, classroom activities, homework, school functions and student progress; create a safe and welcoming classroom environment; collaborate with grade-level teachers, program specialists, program coordinator, director and other staff regarding program implementation; maintain knowledge of current and emerging trends, procedures and evaluation processes in language education; participate in weekly program planning and staff development activities; participate in all training programs required for language immersion, Responsive Classroom, and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program.


    Lakes International Language Academy is a K-6 public school educating over 600 students in Forest Lake, MN, authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization.We offer Spanish and Chinese language immersion.

    Our staff works hard, and has a lot of fun in the process.
    Teachers are involved in developing curriculum and writing materials, as well as decision making for the school. In fact, our board of directors has a teacher majority. We enjoy high teacher retention, and a waiting list of students who want to enter our program. 

    Our Mission 

    Lakes International Language Academy, a public elementary school, strongly emphasizes second language acquisition by immersing children in Spanish from kindergarten through sixth grade. The students of Lakes International are held to a high standard in traditional elementary subjects and at the same time prove capable of establishing a high level of proficiency in both spoken and written Spanish. 

    The Lakes International community promotes a strong academic foundation, a safe and pleasant atmosphere, and health and physical activity for our students. We value our faculty and staff not only for their hard work and dedication but for the gifts they share with our children: knowledge, language, multi-cultural understanding, and a love of learning. 

    Lakes International values individuality, and recognizes that everyone has a different set of strengths and needs. We value community, and strive to make connections with others in our school, our community, and beyond. Lakes International will provide a quality education that prepares critically thinking, socially capable, culturally aware young people to thrive in a diverse, global society. 

    Achievements: We received our charter in 2004, renewed on schedule in 2007, and 2010. We entered a cooperative agreement with the local district schools to offer continued Spanish immersion in grades 7 – 12, where students receive language arts, social studies, and industrial arts in Spanish.  Plans for continued Chinese immersion in grades 7 – 12 will commence as K-6 Chinese immersion students approach those grades.

    We have outpaced projected enrollment each year of operation, while earning respectable ratings on the MDE's School Report Card each year of operation. 

    Awards: 
    • Recognized for our fiscal responsibility from the MDE, receiving the state Finance Award for the past five years in a row.
     Received a 2-year Theater grant from Perpich Center for the Arts in 2009.
    • Received Minnesota Schools of Character award in 2011.
    • Received a 2-year Dance grant from Perpich Center for the Arts in 2010.
    • Received a Theater grant from SteppingStone Theatre in 2011.
    • Earned State School of Character award in  2010 and 2011.
    • Earned National School of Character award in 2010 and 2011.

    Work environment: We have a remodeled building, including a new wing with 14 new light-filled classrooms, a large gymnasium, and a new media center. We have up-to-date technology and are acquiring a rich array of print and other media resources. 

    Travel: Teachers are provided opportunities to participate in training provided both in the Twin Cities, and across the U.S. in the areas of Language Immersion, International Baccalaureate, and Responsive Classroom. Occasional travel is required. 

    Diversity: Many of our teachers were born in Spanish speaking countries.  All have traveled extensively, with nearly all having lived in a Spanish speaking country for at least three months. In addition, our Chinese department employs native Chinese speakers.

    Training: Lakes International provides training for new staff in three areas: International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, Immersion training provided by the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition at the University of Minnesota, and Responsive Classroom training.

    Working hours and Vacations: School starts at 7:50 am and releases at 2:10 pm. Teachers are expected to be in school by 7:25, and attend all staff and grade level meetings. Beyond those hours, workload varies by grade, unit, teacher experience, and the individual students in a teacher's class. As professionals, teachers are expected to put in the time it takes to do a professional job. Some weeks that will be as low as 40 hours, others, as high as 75 hours. In no way should this position be thought of as an hourly position. Vacations include typical US school vacations: 1+ week for winter break, one week for spring break, 2.5 months for summer break, as well as various vacation days through the year. 

    Career Track and Advancement: Many leadership positions are available, on a yearly basis, to Lakes International teachers, depending on their interests and expertise. 

    Grants to Teachers: The LILA Foundation offers “Inquiry 360” grants to teachers to pursue enriching experiences that they can bring back to share in the classroom.  Teachers are encouraged to pursue these experiences abroad.  Inquiry 360 grants are competitive and are awarded in April for use the following summer.

    A Day in the Life: Arrive by 7:25, complete last minute preparations. Students begin to trickle in. Spend time chatting (in the target langauge) with students. Begin class at 7:50, with a Morning Meeting. Teach all disciplines, many in the form of a transdisciplinary Unit of Inquiry. Lunch at the same time every day--45 minutes, duty free. In addition, you will have one 30-minute ""prep"" period during the day, during which your students will go to a specialist subject, such as physical education, a language class in their third langauge, music, or technology. Dismiss class at 2:10, and do a short ""bus duty"" or ""car pool duty."" Two days a week, there will be a 1.5 - 2 hour meeting after school either before or after school, or during lunch, meet with grade level team to discuss unit progress, assessment, and other issues. 

    Social functions: Usually at least one per month, arranged in the staff lounge, and held off site.  We usually start the school year with an overnight staff retreat in August, and have a January staff party with guests as well.

    Qualifications: Our ideal candidate possesses a valid Minnesota elementary teaching license.  The candidate must have native or near native proficiency in both the target language (Spanish or Chinese) and English.  Candidate should have lived abroad for a minimum of six months or equivalent.  A minimum of one year of elementary school teaching experience is preferred. Prior immersion classroom teaching experience is a plus.  Familiarity with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme is also preferred.

    Position Opening:  Spanish Teacher  (.5 - .6 FTE) 

      

    Description:   

    Friends School of Minnesota (FSM) offers a rich K-8 program where in-depth academic studies are 

    supported by peaceful forms of conflict resolution. In the tradition of more than 80 Quaker Friends 

    schools across the United States, Friends School of Minnesota meets children’s intellectual, 

    emotional and spiritual needs in an environment that nurtures their social consciousness.   

      

    FSM’s academic program is guided by the principles of progressive education. We believe that 

    children learn best as active participants, collaborators, and problem-solvers within a community. 

    Teachers incorporate student’s questions and emerging ideas into project-oriented, 

    interdisciplinary units that lead to student investigations and demonstrations of understanding.   

      

    There are currently 168 students and 14 faculty with five lower school (K-4) classrooms. Middle 

    school consists of 5th through 8th grades. All classes except kindergarten are mixed-age, providing 

    students with broad social and academic opportunities, and allowing cooperative learning to 

    flourish. Lower School class sizes range from 16-18 students, and middle school classes are 

    approximately 20 students. 

     

    Spanish at FSM is taught two to three times per week to lower school students, for 30 minute 

    periods, and three times a week to middle school in 45 minute periods. We follow ACTFL guidelines 

    and goals. Lower school Spanish objectives are related primarily to developing an ear for Spanish, 

    learning words and phrases through games, song, and projects, and increasing awareness of the 

    Spanish-speaking world. In middle school, students begin to learn more about the structure of 

    Spanish and how to use it to communicate effectively in the present, past, and future tenses. 

    Meaningful interaction with the Spanish-speaking world is built into middle school projects.  

    Please see our website (www.fsmn.org) for more information about our school and curriculum. 

     Requirements:  

     Deep understanding of and commitment to progressive education and Quaker values  

     Understanding and appreciation of the cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages 

    and needs of K-8th grade age students.  

     Spanish teaching experience. 

     Experience with and commitment to collaborating with colleagues.   

     Experience in ongoing assessment of student progress using a variety of different means.  

     Strong communication and organizational skills  

     Fluency in Spanish 

     

    Preferred:  

     Foreign Language certification    

     Advanced degree in education  

     Experience teaching in mixed-age, mixed-ability classroom setting  

     Experience with conflict resolution and mediation  

     

    Salary:    

    • $15,000-30,000 depending on experience, with pro-rated benefits

     

    To apply, submit the following:   

    1. Completed application form (on website)  

    2. Resume  

    3. A one to three page statement of your educational philosophy  

    4. Three letters of reference (at least one from a supervisor from the last two years)  

      

    Send all materials by email to:
