Description: Mother Lode Adventist Junior Academy (MLAJA) is seeking a homeroom grade 5/6 classroom teacher. Additional junior academy endorsements are a plus. MLAJA is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, two hours east of San Francisco and one hour north of Yosemite National Park. This puts skiing, hiking, canoeing, and other outdoor activities close to the school. At the same time, San Francisco and other Bay Area attractions are only 130 miles away. The MLAJA community consists of an active and supportive church, a thriving Early Childhood Education Center, and an expanding Adventist hospital.

Experience: Candidates will value the spiritual emphasis that is central to MLAJA’s mission, have a growth mindset, demonstrate strong organizational skills, effectively communicate with parents, and be able to add to the existing strengths of an exceptional staff. Teaching responsibilities will be primarily in the 5/6 classroom along with additional duties based on certification. Applicants must be active members of the Seventh-day Adventist church and have proof of eligibility to work in the United States. (Hold current work visa and residency in the US if not a US citizen.)
