Forest School First Grade Teacher: A Teaching Opportunity Like Nothing You’ve Ever Known
Holland Christian Schools in Holland, MI began a new program this year—Forest School. Based on the notion that nature serves as an incredible stimulus for student curiosity, learning, creativity, collaboration, problem solving, and even faith formation, Forest School students spend the bulk of each day outdoors—whether that be in the wooded acreage within Holland Christian’s boundaries or at any number of local natural areas—rain, snow, or shine. The program is already serving as an inspiration for other schools and attracting visitors from around the nation, documentary filmmakers, and educational researchers.

This year’s inaugural Forest School class began with Kindergarten, and those students will continue their nature-based learning journey in First Grade for the 2019-2020 school year. Holland Christian Schools is looking for a teacher to guide these young people, building on their foundational success and taking the next step to unlock even more learning adventures.

The ideal teacher for Forest School First Grade will have an excellent command of learning standards, a creative drive to reshape student-centered learning environments and experiences, and a genuine love for the outdoors in all their varied seasons. Support and training comes from the staff at Holland Christian Schools, along with the Outdoor Discovery Center, our partner in Forest School education. The teacher will possess a grade-appropriate state credential and will need to have or be willing to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) for the state of Michigan in order to assist in transporting students.

If you are a passionate, Christ-following teacher and being on the leading edge of an exciting educational movement within the context of one of America’s best Christian school systems sounds like your dream come true, we invite you to apply. The work will be challenging but incredibly rewarding. If chosen, the opportunity will change your life and make your heart sing in ways you’ve never felt before.

You can apply online here. If you want to find out more about Holland Christian’s Forest School, or to schedule a visit, contact South Side Elementary Principal, Miska Rynsburger at mrynsburger@hollandchristian.org.
